  • (1888PressRelease) August 24, 2013 - Southeast Asia Traders today announced results from its inaugural "Top Traders Survey," which reveals the current strategy and future plans of the company's most successful trading customers. Top Traders are Southeast Asia Traders customers who made at least 36 trades over the past 12 months and whose total portfolio performance during this time was at least 20 percent, putting them among the 1,000 top-performing traders at the firm.

    Against a backdrop of worldwide economic instability, 68 percent of Top Traders identify global economic instability as one of their top three investment concerns for 2013. To combat this, they plan to decrease their allocation to international equity by 10 percent in the six months following the survey.

    Top Traders are seeking investment opportunities elsewhere, such as increasing their allocation to ETFs by 15 percent over the six months - the largest planned increase to any financial product. At the time of the survey, the respondents' portfolio allocation was 57 percent to equities, 16 percent to cash, 10 percent to bonds, seven percent to options and five percent to ETFs. Additionally, the three market sectors in which they would invest a hypothetical windfall of $100,000 are energy, information technology and utilities.

    "We view this survey as an excellent opportunity to look inside the minds of some of our best traders," said Tim Huy Quan, executive vice president of Southeast Asia Traders' retail brokerage business. "These investors are setting the standard for performance using our online brokerage platform and their insight can be immensely valuable to other traders looking to gain an investing edge."
