“Your articles have a good balance of keen analytics, observation and empathy for the failings of human nature.” —LOH CHIN HUA, CEO, Keppel Corp
“Hooi Ling’s column is a must read for fellow CFAs …given her depth and width of financial analysis.” —TAN CHIN HWEE, President, CFA Singapore

$how Me The Money is a series about learning how to grow your money. Teh Hooi Ling brings to both layman and seasoned investor important economic concepts and the investment strategies of the world’s leading financial experts. Using real data, Teh shows how these strategies would have worked in the Singapore market over the years and signposts the lessons to be learnt and pitfalls to avoid.

In $how Me The Money Book 4, the final book in the series, Teh talks about the randomness that accounts for success; the fairness or otherwise of lauding the successful; the natural tendency to share our good fortune with the less fortunate; the impermanence of any condition; and the need to explore the purpose in life in order to make a difference in our approach to it.
