We’ve been nominated again for the SGX Orb Awards!

The Fifth Person has been nominated in the ‘GoTo.com’ category for the 2020 SGX Orb Awards organised by the Singapore Exchange! The award recognises the independent investment-related website or financial blog that most empowers investors to make educated decisions with their money.

The Fifth Person first won the award at the inaugural 2018 SGX Orb Awards and we’re honoured to be nominated for the award again this year, along with DollarsAndSense and Investor-One.

The 2020 SGX Orb Awards also features four other award categories – Story of the Year, #Resilience, The Hidden Gem, and The Visual Treat — and nominees include The Business Times, Channel NewsAsia, CNBC, The Edge, DealStreetAsia, and Venture Views.

Story of the Year

This category seeks a news story, feature or opinion piece that best offers insights into investing in the securities or derivatives markets. Which innovations have driven opportunities for retail and institutional investors? How has technology transformed risk management, or reinforced trust and efficiency? The winner of this category will demonstrate the ability to uncover a fresh angle and capture what is most important for market participants to know.


For this special category for 2020 is looking for both original and published work on how financial communities are bolstering their resilience amid COVID-19. In what ways are industry stakeholders working to overcome this year’s challenges to sustain growth, or are they recalibrating their expectations for the future? How will our post-pandemic financial landscape look like?

The Hidden Gem

This category seeks to honour the best feature or analysis of an under-covered stock listed on SGX, whether on Mainboard or Catalist. The challenge will be to uncover a fresh angle that investors or analysts may have missed.

The Visual Treat

This category is for all things creative and experiential – a broadcast segment for TV, a podcast, homemade video or even illustrations that probe deep into the workings of a financial or commodity asset class. The winner will deliver a compelling story while offering viewers an experience to remember.


The award for this category will go to the financial blogger or independent website that most empowers investors to make educated decisions with their money.
