How much is enough for the future?
It's simple really. Just note down how much you are spending currently, to estimate your future expenses. Plan how you would like to live during retirement, and set aside a required amount of funds, capturing changes in expenditures. That's planning with a defined goal in mind. You can also plan on a monthly contribution based on your savings and intended investment period. Use our online calculator.

And for how much time do I need to invest in this Plan?
You can choose a Plan from as short a span of 3 years, all the way to a comprehensive 20 year Plan. It all depends on your plan, investment objective and age. If you plan to retire in another 10 years you can begin today and use the power of compounding to make comfortable retirement a reality.

So how do I create a plan to make our retirement life really comfortable?
Your Relationship Manager will help you create a plan to meet your objectives.

Here's an example to show you how it works. In order to achieve a goal saving of $500,000 in 20-years from now, you would need to make a monthly investment of $800 p.m., at an assumed rate of return of 7%. This also takes into account an assumed saving of $20,000 today.

Your Current Age 40 Years
Age at Retirement 60 Years
Current Investments valued at $ 20,000
Savings at Retirement Age $ 500,000
Assumed Rate of Return 7% p.a.
Required Monthly Investment $ 800

This example shown above is Hypothetical and is for illustrative purposes only and does not represent the performance of any specific investment portfolio. Account Values were obtained by using a nominal rate of return compounded monthly. Contributions are assumed to be made at the beginning of each monthly period.
