Gold and Silver by George Wong

He educates about the value of gold and silver and when to invest in these precious metals base on the gold-silver ratio. He emphasized the importance of silver as the world economies move into digital currency and print even more fiat currency.

Potential of One Belt One Road by Dr. Goh Jin Hian
Dr. Goh, CEO of the New Silk Routes Group (NSR) talks about how One Belt One Road is going to benefit the ASEAN Market and beyond and how his company is able to tap into this opportunity.

Value Investing by David Poh (EquitiesTracker)
David Poh came in to educate that investment in value is likely the better and smarter way. With this thought, we are able to evaluate capital risk and timing risk. By evaluating those two aspects, one will be able to build a long term money compounding machine. David Poh also mentioned that despite the slowdown in economy, certain companies will still benefit and continue to prosper no matter the state of economy. Some of these companies produce basic daily necessities and leverage on consumers’ pattern of consumption. For example, there will always be consumption of instant noodles whether in good times or bad times due to price and convenience.
Sharing Economy by Jonathan Quek
Jonathan Quek, the founder of Owners Circle and Silver Malaysia explains the current trend and rapid change of the economic model towards sharing economy. He believes that we are all able to co-own businesses and leverage on shared resources to make a joint venture a success. Jonathan emphasized a major problem that SMEs face – having great ideas but insufficient funding or talents. This sharing economy brings a new light to owning businesses as companies are able to thrive and compete against, say a famous hoteliers without actually owning a property. Hence, aspiring owners are now able to co-own businesses that fits their lifestyle or industries that they are passionate about.
Property Enhancement by Dato’ Tan Su Cheng
Managing Partner of PDI Design & Associates, Dato’ Tan Su Cheng is part of the sharing economy movement and currently working with Owners Circle as part of the current economic shift. He spoke of enhancing a property and turn it into a profit generating business. By implementing sharing economy model, aspiring business owners will be able to participate in the business as well. This will encourage property spaces occupancy and attract clients to the business. Through his experience and network, property business includes knowing what the demographic market requires, in aspects of design and even maintenance of the said property. Dato’ Tan reminds us all that it is not what we want in a property that would generate the cash flow but what the market needs that would make the property sustainable.
