Where and how can I make fast money?

Posted: 09 Feb 2014 04:10 PM PST

I HAVE often been asked this question by young working adults: "Where and how can I make fast money?"

My usual reply comes in the form of another question:"Are you also willing to lose it as fast too?"

Making 'fast' money doesn't last.Think about it.

How many times do gamblers put back their winnings into the gambling table only to find that they lose everything they have won and more?

Even if it isn't lost on the same day,over time, gambling is a zero-sum game.

There is no difference in trading or speculating on risky investment instruments if you are not trained to do the job or you are not doing this on a full-time basis.

Think about the last time you made good money from a stock investment – what was the next thing you did?

Plough everything back and maybe more into another stock tip? If you are not careful, after each "winning investment", the capital invested into the next instrument becomes larger and larger until a bad move wipes away everything including profits from earlier investments.

There are no fast ways to make money but there are slow and sure ways that work.

Investing in a portfolio with the right asset allocation for your age and life goals is a great way to start.

Check that your portfolio has a right balance between liquid and illiquid assets.

Owning too many illiquid assets (e.g. real estate) can put you or your beneficiaries in a cash-tight situation which can be financially draining on you in times of slower demand for such assets or when borrowing costs escalate, assuming your asset is leveraged.

Annually reallocate the profits you make from your plan. Don't plough them back into the same instrument.

Place them into an asset class which is under-allocated or utilise the profits to average down on other investments you know eventually will make a come-back.

Some of my retired clients use them to fund their annual holidays!

If you're still wondering where you can begin as an investor, begin by having an investment plan.

Don't go bungee jumping when you're not sure if your heart (and money) can take it.

Discuss this with your financial planner first and stay patient with your plan.

KLIA2 sees 80% of business space taken up: Hasan Malek

Posted: 09 Feb 2014 06:58 PM PST

SEPANG: Eighty per cent of the business space at the low cost carrier terminal (LCCT), KLIA2, has to date been taken up, said Minister of Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism (KPDNKK), Datuk Seri Hasan Malek.

He said this was a positive sign, indicating that the KLIA2 was not just a LCCT, but also a retail centre that will provide job opportunities for 12,000 locals.

"Various brands, both from at home and abroad, will operate at the KLIA2, and serve not just passengers but also those visiting the place.

"The KLIA2 retail hub is among the Entry Point projects (EPP) under the National Key Economic Areas (NKEA) for the wholesale and retail sector under my ministry," he added.

Hassan told reporters this after visting the KLIA2 here today.

Also present was the KPDNKK Deputy Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Bashah Md Hanipah and its secretary general Datuk Alias Ahmad. Hasan said the KLIA2 EPP is among the private sector initiaives spearheaded by Malaysia Airport Holdings Bhd (MAHB), while the government acted as the facilitator in the implementation of the project.

He said the KLIA2 offered business opportunities that had the potential of providing big returns for the retail and wholesale sectors, following an expected increase in the number of domestic and international passengers using the LCCT in time.

Hasan said the business space at the KLIA2 was divided into two sections, namely that at the main terminal and the gateway – Reuters.
