Singaporeans’ Roadmap: Key Personal Financial Schemes And The Decisions You Have To Make At Every Age In Singapore
We look at how Singaporeans navigate key personal financial schemes and decisions in our lives in a uniquely Singaporean way. Along the way, and usually when we hit certain milestones, we can expect financial support levers and oftentimes, even having to make financial decisions. When reading this, you can think of it as the “Game of Life” from a Singaporean perspective. When You Are Born Even before you can start talking or walking, your CPF accounts are created for you. As a brand-new Singaporean baby, you receive a MediSave grant of $4,000. This isn’t just some arbitrary amount either. In fact, it is a sufficient amount for Singaporean babies to pay for your own MediShield Life premiums until you turn 21. These funds can also be used for Integrated Shield Plan premiums a

Best Endowment Plan Singapore: Great Eastern, OCBC, DBS Savvy, NTUC, Prudential
Investing isn’t something that’s reserved for rich people. In Singapore, investing is essential to financial health. Endowment plans are a fairly common type of product that Singaporeans often buy for investment purposes. There are a variety of endowment plans, including the infamous investment-linked insurance. The various types can be so different that it’s impossible to compare them apple-to-apple. That’s why you need to know what you want out of an endowment plan before you know what type to buy. Before you make an informed comparison of the various types of endowment plans, you should never blindly buy one just because it was recommended to you by an agent!

Can I Retire Early With a $2.5 Million Dividend-Focused Portfolio?
It kinda sucks sometimes to receive a question wondering if their family has enough to completely stop work due to health and work stress. But it turns out this is getting quite common given the environment we live in today. One of our advisers also told me he is working on a case similar to this. A reader read my piece about someone who wonders if he has enough to be Coast Financial Independent and make a risky career switch (read the article here) and wonder if I can detect any red flags in his plan. The requirements in his day job are getting tougher and tougher and he is running into issues coping with that and some health conditions. Quitting a high paying job can be scary primarily because you have that feeling you may never have the opportunity to earn that well a

OCBC share price to rocket with Great Eastern Holdings exit?
Year End Special Offer! Will it be 3rd time lucky for OCBC Bank? The venerable bank tried to privatise Great Eastern Holdings (GEH) unsuccessfully in 2004 and 2006. In the 2006 attempt, OCBC Bank managed to raised its stake in Great Eastern to 87.1%. Since then, OCBC Bank has steadily increased its stake to 87.91% as at 31 March 2021. If a privatisation does materialise, what would be the impact on OCBC share price (SGX: O39)? Under SGX Rule 723 of the Listing Manual, listed companies must ensure that at least 10% of their issued shares must be held by the public. As OCBC currently holds about 12% of Great Eastern, the bank would just need to acquire only 2% more of Great Eastern shares in order to trigger the mandatory delisting requirement. The impetus for the acquisition should be the a

Could Singapore Investors Be Affected By China Evergrande’s Debt Crisis?
Made in China jokes aside, people who trade Chinese stocks know that you have to stay on your toes at all times. Sure, they can offer explosive growth potential, but there’s always the risk that the company will go under because of some fraud (Luckin Coffee, anyone?) or government crackdown. To be fair, these threats are present anywhere, not just China. But the ginormous levels of authority the Chinese government wields mean that crackdowns can happen swiftly and transform the business landscape overnight. In addition, China suffers from relatively high levels of business fraud, which is common in developing countries. The latest fiasco is the Evergrande crisis that’s been splashed all over the news for a few weeks already. Even if you don’t dare to invest in Chinese stocks, there i

Health sinking fund to pay the premiums of your shield plan riders
In my last article, I look at whether we can create a health sinking fund to pre-fund our health and wellness expenses in financial independence. When we do not have income coming in, and we do not know whether we will be able to accumulate again, how much should be inside a health sinking fund? How conservative or less conservative should it be? The first article focus only on one area where we need funding: Funding our health insurance plans, which is more commonly known as our shield plans. We learn that the nature of cash flow needed in health insurance is unique in that the premiums are low when we are younger, very expensive when we are older, and that this premium schedule does not stay constant. If we lump our health insurance expense needs together with our

7 Types Of Investments You Can Make Using Your CPF OA Monies Via The CPFIS-OA
Our CPF Ordinary Account (OA) balances earn a minimum of 2.5% per annum. Unlike what some may think, we can actually “touch” our CPF monies by investing part of our OA balances via the CPF Investment Scheme (CPFIS). If we invest our OA balances, the aim is to do better than the 2.5% interest floor that CPF pays us. This is quite possible (and we will go into the investments we can make below). However, we need to be willing to take on investment risk – which may lead to losses. As of 2020, 960,000 CPF members have invested $17 billion of their CPF OA balances, while 283,000 CPF members have invested $5.5 billion of their CPF SA balances. In this article, we will focus on investing our OA balances as it provides 2.5% per annum, compared to our SA balances, which provides a higher retu

OCBC share price recovers from Dr Mahathir effect
LIFETIME MEMBERSHIP It seems that OCBC share price has a strange affinity with Dr Mahathir. When Mahathir became the Prime Minister of Malaysia for the second time in May 2018, it promised to be a political fairy-tale that will be remembered for generations to come. But surely no one in his right mind could have predicted the kind of impact it would have on OCBC share price, which tumbled from a high of $13.65 in May 2018 to a low of $10.40 in October 2018. Even more bizarrely, when Dr Mahathir announced his resignation on 24 February 2020, OCBC share price crashed from $11.00 in February 2020 to a low of $8.35 in March 2020. For unknown reasons, it appears to me that Dr Mahathir has that TVB drama “Ting Hai” stock market effect, at least for OCBC share price. Although I am not exactl
