Find out how the financial markets have performed in Q1 2021 and how Endowus portfolios have done during this period

Global markets have risen since January over the promise of a large Biden financial stimulus and steady vaccine roll-outs. While equities as a whole rose steadily in Q1 2021, returns varied across market sectors and geographies. In particular, small caps and value stocks have outperformed broader markets.

In this session, Samuel Rhee and Wei Mei Tan, Endowus’ Chief Investment Officer and Senior Advisor, will discuss:

  1. Global financial markets performance in Q1 2021
  2. How the Endowus CPF and Cash/SRS investment portfolios have performed year to date against benchmarks
  3. Top performing asset classes, sectors, and geographies for the first quarter
  4. Endowus performance vs other robo advisors and the implications of different investment approaches
