With FD going below inflation rate, what would you do if you strike $1 million and do not wish to see that money shrinks over the years. Many would say stock, bond, funds, etc. There are also insurance schemes available.

 

Of course for people of different age groups, you may do it differently. Any advice, suggestion?

So you are the one last night. Congrats. To be honest, $1million is not enough for serious investment to bring over to your next generation. I would say surely can live happily ever after for ownself & immediate family, IF spent like how you would now. Can buy a small studio apartment if you continue to work OR retired immediately and spent time chasing a healthy hobby. You can't bring the money along to meet St. Peter anyway.

Can elaborate which 'blue chips' that can draw $4k monthly. would you really dump all just on stock?

1) Repay any outstanding loans

2) Make cash top-up to max out SA / RA account with CPF to take advantage of risk-free interest rate up to 6% p.a.

3) Contribute to SRS account for income tax relief. The amount will form part of the war chest below

4) Apportion the rest among time deposits and saving accounts to build a war chest ready for deployment when undervalued investment opportunities arise

Actually if you allow drawdown on the principle (say using an annuity programme), each month can draw out $8,000, can still last about 40 years (excluding inflation).

Much depends on whether you need to leave anything for kids.

For a present value of $1M, one will need an annual rate of return close to 9.5% to sustain the said annuity. Assuming 3% inflation, the required annual rate of return will need to be around 12.5% - may not be sustainable over 40 years especially given that one should avoid too risky investments during retirement. I wonder what annuity program would offer such guaranteed returns :D

I hope I did strike that $1 M toto, definitely will try to buy toto since you guys suggested [inlove] 

 

I think it is good to plan ahead for retirement. The amount of $1 M is a sum pluck out from the air. If don't have $1M, then $500K mean half the expected monthly allowance lor. [bigcry]

 

Don't forget, this amount has to see the 2 old folks through our remaining years. If one retires at 65 as recommended, with average life span of 85, likely the money would have to see us through the next 20 years.

 

Most insurance related scheme will not enjoy yield of more than 3.4%. Of course if you drawn down the principle sum for 20 years, maybe you can enjoy $100K a year or $8K pm for 2 person. What happen after that 20 years you are still alive and kicking? Some has advised parking some funds in investment funds which can enjoy around 3% return plus possible appreciation of investment.

 

Many of us would simply just put in FD or buy some insurance or stocks. Good to hear from others how they plan while we try to save toward that plan. :a-aggressive:

Actually I mentioned before, recommended by some Taiwanese anal-list

Start spending your 2/3 of savings from 50yo....
Not one time spend all
Do what one like to do or missed to do..eg go far far land, wave at atb etc...

Reward yourself for working so hard till 50yo


1/3 save as reserve till end of life
