Hi Steven, were you able to achieve your goals? I'm interested to learn how you went about identifying what to invest in & also how these investments turned out since you started? Thanks in advance for sharing.

Yeah, but seriously, who among us is brave enough to put all of their monthly savings into Thailand??!

We would all be millionaires if we could predict something like that.

reposting part of what I posted elsewhere:

--------------------
BTW,
If someone has put in an initial $1,000 into Aberdeen Thailand Equity Fund (ATEF) in Dec 1997, and for every month after that, just simply put in $100 until today, 8 Jan 2013 (ATEF just crossed its 15th year mark), that investor would have:
invested $19,100
his fund value is $96,080.78
has a floating profit of $76,980.78
403.04% return YTD
annualised return of 25.84%

..... quite decent for just being loyally invested with a good fund manager, not caring whether 2008 Financial Crisis, or other bumps along the way, not withstanding 96 trading days of seeing fund reduce in value (32.65% of trading days) due to market fluctuations
-------------------

$100 per month is not life savings, just need discipline, and identification of good fund.

and
------------------
p.s. I just re-examined my spreadsheet, it shows that the ATEF investor, since he invested early in Dec 97, and invested consistently every month, he has accumulated enough units, that actually even during '08 Crisis, his fund was still generating profits every month, albeit successively reducing profits per month for 4 months (for 4 continuous months before Crisis, profits reduced every month, which is an indication of trouble brewing, if the investor is smart, he would have picked up such signals).
That's the benefit of being invested as early as possible to accumulate units to weather any downturns

China, Asia-ex Japan and Emerging Markets appear to make strong moves in 2013 (agree with FSM). Good luck to all!

I think what you said is absolutely correct. No one should doubt what you have shared. However, the only concern Stephen should pay attention is that what Nth Dimension proposed are based on past results or observations. But the past performance may not be an indicator for future performance, the index may go down or up depending on future market ( mind you,....I hated this statement in the past when I just started learning investment, but now, it seems quite helpful in reminding newbie like me before). Thailand had been performing very well in the past. It is however on its peak and has recently even come down substantially with the global market down turn. Unless you are very familiar with Thailand market and its governance, and have strong confidence, you may go ahead and hope it will still perform the same like before. Happy investing....

My opinion is still good invest in ASEAN fund.
but properties type fund is a good choice at this moment, maybe in sometime later properties related fund need to switch out.
