MY SQUIRRELSAVE PORTFOLIO: +35% in 25 months
Jun 26, 2021 | Victor Lye BBM CFA CFP®
Last night, someone who had read my blog dated 2 April 2021 asked about my SquirrelSave portfolio…
In that blog, I had shared how my SquirrelSave portfolio had performed since June 2019 when I had invested SGD 15,000.
At end-March 2021, my portfolio value was SGD 18,985 or an investment appreciation of +27% over 22 months.
On a yearly basis, that’s around +14% per annum. Quite decent, in my view, compared to leaving it in a bank account.
My SquirrelSave portfolio (set at Very Aggressive risk level) has appreciated by another +6.6% since end-March 2021…
This is a total return of +35% in just over 2 years! That’s an annual compounded return of +16% per annum.

Benefit from SquirrelSave’s fully AI-driven investment management technology…
Unlike traditional investment products such as unit trusts, SquirrelSave is not a fund.
SquirrelSave is a fully automated risk-based investment management service which uses machine learning AI techniques to construct and manage portfolios to target longer-term risk-adjusted returns.
Given my years in the investment space, my idea is to remove emotion and gut feel from conventional investment management. A human manager will find it almost impossible to diversify globally 24/7. Hence, a human way to diversify boils down to personality and gut feel – instead of a 24/7 quantitative and disciplined approach. SquirrelSave makes it possible by applying AI methods that have become available in recent years.

* SquirrelSave uses AI to design and manage diversified investment portfolios for each investor. Because SquirrelSave is not an investment fund, there is no single return measure. Instead, every SquirrelSave investor has his/her own investment performance as each investor is managed separately by our SquirrelSave AI. As investors can withdraw and top-up any time, investment returns will be affected by individual investor decisions. Hence, SquirrelSave uses reference portfolios which are actual portfolios managed on an ongoing basis, without any interference with withdrawals or top-ups, to measure investment performance.
