Hi, I am Thomas Chua.
I have long been interested in value investing. And thanks to books and the plethora of excellent resources on the internet, I’ve been able to absorb an incredible amount of knowledge over the years by studying ideas from successful investors.
After taking up Banking and Financial Services at Ngee Ann Polytechnic, I continued to pursue my interest and graduated with a degree in Business Administration (specializing in Finance & Management) from the National University of Singapore (NUS).
I currently reside in Singapore.
What is Steady Compounding?
You have probably heard the quote, “You’re the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” The five people I associate with most, whether through books, articles, or social media, are:
- Warren Buffett, Chairman of Berkshire Hathaway
- Charlie Munger, Vice-Chairman of Berkshire Hathaway
- James Clear, author of Atomic Habits
- Charles Handy, author of 21 Letters on Life and Its Challenges
- Gautam Baid, author of The Joys of Compounding: The Passionate Pursuit of Lifelong Learning
As I waddle my way through life, these five individuals have provided me the framework and mental models on these areas I’m deeply passionate about – Personal Finance, Investing and Living a Purposeful Life.
The purpose of writing this blog is to organize my thoughts and further my learning, as an extension to a journal that I keep in hard copy. And hopefully, my experiences will be able to benefit my readers as you develop your own investment process or framework to life.
“I think it’s far more important to write well than most people realize. Writing doesn’t just communicate ideas; it generates them. If you’re bad at writing and don’t like to do it, you’ll miss out on most of the ideas writing would have generated.“Paul Graham’s essay on “Writing, Briefly“
In the process, I’m hoping to connect with like-minded individuals so that we can share ideas and learn from each other. Life and investing are similar, it is a marathon and the key is to get better one day at a time.
P.S. I also love sports—basketball in particular. You can read about my life as a basketballer here.
