Message from our Chief Investment Officer

Thank you for joining us in this exciting Barbell Challenge.

It is my strong belief that investing is a marathon and not a sprint.
So one needs to adopt a long-term horizon in investing.

One should always invest from a portfolio basis and at DBS,
we believe the Barbell Strategy is the portfolio approach to adopt.

We hope the Barbell Challenge elevates your investment portfolio.
Without further ado, let the games begin.

DBS Chief Investment Officer
