8%pa refers to the long term average return of global stock market indices. The US S&P500 index has returned 10% per annum over the last century, but most other global indices have not had such good track records. So, in order to beat global indices, an 8% return per annum would be a good target. In reality, to achieve 8% return per annum over very long time frame like 30 years or more is a very tall order. 

We aim to beat this hurdle.

  1. Hi!

    I have an idea that might interest you. Company is called Straco Corporation Ltd, it's listed in Singapore. Most of the its profits come from China (2 aquariums), and another significant contributor is the observation wheel in the Singapore Marina Bay.

    My original write-up is here https://netosnotes.blogspot.com/2019/07/background-straco-corporation-develops.html and I recently revisted it here https://netosnotes.blogspot.com/2020/02/revisiting-straco-corporation.html.
