Deferred Resale Levy

According to Minister for National Development, Lawrence Wong, there were 7900 second-timer households who paid the required resale levy when buying second subsidized flat from the Housing and Development Board (HDB) from 2010 to 2015. Notwithstanding the figure, I suspect many people are not aware of the lurking dangers of deferred resale levy rule. Not […]

Raffles Medical share price

Raffles Medical

Crisis? What crisis? Raffles Medical share price suffered a major correction which saw it dropped to a one-year low of $1.20.

During the dark days of the Great Financial Crisis, the lowest trading price was $2.40. But hey, we are not having […]

United Overseas Bank (UOB)

Haw Par

Once upon a time in Singapore’s banking fraternity, there were four local “Heavenly Kings” – Development Bank of Singapore (DBS), United Overseas Bank (UOB), Overseas Union Bank (OUB) and Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation. They are all household names and I believe most Singaporeans have experiences with their bank products or services. On looking back, the devastating […]
