About

Thank you for visiting The Babylonians! Hope you enjoy your read so far 🙂

Inspired by “The Richest Man in Babylon”, The Babylonians was founded as a financial blog to share educational content about investing and personal finance. To read a more detailed version of why this name was chosen, do check up the post on the story of Babylon.

We are working on an experiment (using myself as a test subject) to see if it is possible for the average joe to escape the 9-5 rat race by following certain laws and principles of wealth. The timeframe to carry out this experiment is 10 years.

I started investing at the age of 25 with a meager allowance and less than $1,000 in my bank account. We are just a little fish in a big pond. Most investments made were through odd jobs here and there. Hence, most of you would have been in a much more fortunate situation than me, financially.

My Investment philosophy is geared towards long-term dividend investing. The idea is to invest in assets, build multiple streams of income and let compounding interests do its work. Hence, my portfolio is largely made up of dividend stocks, REITs, and staking tokens in crypto.

Articles written would be dedicated to sharing the transactions I have made along the way. I would share why I buy or sell a stock, the know-how of investing, analyzing companies, technical analysis, mistakes made, lessons learned and many other more interesting stuff.

I will be completely transparent with all my profits and losses over the coming years. The Portfolio tab would be updated regularly on the last day of each month. The Babylonians started from ground zero and you can track the financial progress of our little project. I would share all my investing experiences and document every incremental baby steps we undertook towards achieving our goal.

This blog is both a financial journal as well as a financial journey. It could either be a fairy tale flop or a realization of a dream 10 years later in 2028. But if we are successful in the pursuit of our goal, I would be 100% convinced there are certain laws governing wealth and the log of this blog shall be a testimony proof that the path to financial independence is attainable by ANYONE. I mean anyone because we started out with negligible capital.

Till then, let’s enjoy the journey and hopefully you can find one or two valuable ideas or inspiration from reading The Babylonians and apply it in your own personal financial life. If you are interested in following the work we do, please join our Telegram Channel, Telegram Community, Facebook Page and also YouTube Page. I would frequently share snippets of market updates, charts, inspirational videos, quotes or just some random thoughts.

Finally, for those who are interested in any form of collaboration, please do not hesitate to contact us at [email protected]. I am open to new ideas, making new friends and meeting like-minded individuals.

  3. Hi,

    I hope you’re well?

    I just wanted to get in touch to inquire whether you ever accept content in the form of guests posts?

    I’m currently working with a client in the finance industry who regularly creates high-quality content that I think would be an excellent match for your readers. If you accept contributor content of this type, I would love to know any guidelines you might have or topics you think your audience would enjoy.

    I look forward to hearing from you soon.

    Best,
    Charlie

  4. Hi,

    I hope you’re well. I am Charlie and I work as a partnership strategist. I came across your blog and thought it would be an interesting place to highlight one of the clients in the fin-tech sector that I am working for.
    The client is based out of Singapore and is looking to grow their audience reach through content partnerships and guest content publication. We believe there are good synergies between the brands, and as the client’s product is one of the fastest growing in the industry, it would make good content for your followers as well.

    If you have any details such as a media pack or rates handy I would be happy to discuss the opportunities available.
    Many thanks,
