You are given a notional SGD 200,000 to invest on the Singapore and the UK stock markets in shares selected from the list of shares in the FTSE ST ALL Share Index (listed on the SGX), and FTSE 100 index (listed on the London Stock Exchange).
You need to build diversified investment portfolios and split your investment 50:50 between two portfolios of shares, which consists of at least 10 companies based on fundamental analysis.
The aim is to maximize the returns of the investment and try to beat the market, e.g. achieving a greater return on average than the market return (FTSE ST ALL Share Index and FTSE 100 index) during the period of trading. It is important you can demonstrate that you understand why you invest in those companies and are able to justify your share selections.
You need to compare and contrast the two portfolios and you need to make explicit reference to Efficient Market Hypothesis (EMH) in your analysis.
