US President-Elect Donald Trump will be inaugurated officially as the President of the United States later today United States time. The position of the US President is always thought to be the position of the most powerful person on earth. Inevitably so. And we have read and heard of President Trump’s views on China, TPP, Climate change and NATO. Some of Trump’s views seem strong. The question is whether these will translate into formal US positions?

In January last year, I deposited a good amount of monies in a one-year fixed deposit of a bank offering interest rate of close to 2%. That was at a time when banks were dangling carrots of higher interest rates to retail savers. A year now, from what I have been reading, the fixed-term interests have not been as appealing as those a year ago. Overall, though the interest earned from my fixed deposit a year ago is very very humble, I am satisfied as it is an investment without the risks associated with equities. It is a diversification strategies of putting one’s monies in different investment vehicles. It is a strategy of a low risk, low return on one’s savings.
