I just wanted to document a few updates so far that are happening right now.
I tendered my resignation from my current company which I’ve been working for 6 years now to take on a new role outside the Group. The decision has not been easy to make mostly due to the great knit connection I have with some of the people there. Over the years, we’ve been bonded and through a lot and many of our lives activities surround the same group of people that I spent much time with.
Still, I thought if there was a day I would leave my current organization it would be during this period. Obviously, there are certain things that I cannot say too much here but I think the time is ripe. Apart from the social companion, there’s nothing else in the company that would allow me to progress further.
Am I Retiring Yet?
I played some naughty thoughts in my mind and was contemplating close on this but there’s two years more to go since the very first day I started this whole FI objective thing and I wanted to close in on that promise.
I left to join another corporation which is one of the biggest company in Singapore by market cap which I think would expand my horizon further. Being in this new industry, I think it’ll also help in my investment checklist in the future learning more on this industry which is a very important one.
I’m pretty sure though that this will be the last leg towards my drive to corporate working. A few years from now will see me either going downhill or scaling down to freelance or part time work because age is also catching up and I want to make the best of my time.
What Does It Mean For This Blog?
For a start, I’ll be extremely busy for the first 3 months since it’s quarterly reporting season and also budgeting season so I probably will stop writing for a while to focus on my new role.
There might also be some regulatory restriction on writing my personal opinion on company prospecting so this is something I will also have to clarify with my new employer.
One thing that’s almost sure is I will definitely almost scale down on my public appearance with this new role until I get the above approval sorted out but it won’t be fast. First thing first, I think i will need time to settle down in the new company.
What Happen To My Investment?
It’ll be a lot more passive now than ever.
I am still not a big fan of investing in index so it’ll continue to be a combination of equities and reits and the strategy employed will continue to be dividend investing.
My portfolio doesn’t have a lot of companies so it’ll be easy to follow their development with just a few companies which I am already rather familiar with.
I am still cautiously optimistic the portfolio will reach its objective by the end of this year so pillow stocks pillow strategy remains.
That’s about the updates I have right now so meanwhile happy weekend ahead!
Thanks for reading.
