2018-05-25 (Fri): How to Safeguard Your Portfolio Using Regulated Alternative Investments – Sani Hamid


Workshop description

Before this workshop starts, OTCS will be conducting its AGM.


Do you know there are regulated alternative investments which have low correlation or are even totally NOT correlated to the stock markets?


Low correlation or uncorrelated means that if stock market crashes, these investments would be less affected.

With markets at all time high, and potential violent market reactions that can be triggered by a tweet or press of a button, do you want to find out how you can protect your portfolio with such regulated alternative investments?


Through Kenny Loh, one of our OTCS speaker and crew, we invited Mr Sani Hamid, a 21-year veteran working in the financial markets, to share with you:

  • What are the risk in the stock market right now
  • What are these regulated alternative investments which have low correlation or even uncorrelated to stock markets
  • How you can use such alternative investments to protect your portfolio


BONUS 1: Q&A with an economist

If time permits, we will also hold a Q&A session at the end where you can ask Mr Sani Hamid your most pressing questions about the economy and investing in the current volatile market conditions.

BONUS 2: Market Outlook and Update

As we’re entering the 2nd half of 2018, Mr Sani Hamid will also be giving a market update and outlook before he starts.
