This article was first published on 29 April 2019 and was updated on 12 November 2019 to highlight upcoming events.

A side effect of life expectancy in Singapore increasing is the corresponding increase in importance of retirement planning, since many of us would likely end up spending at least 20 years (or more) in retirement. The quality of life we would have during our retirement years would depend on whether we have saved and invested adequately while we’re still young.

This hands-on workshop by Syfe’s Head of Distribution Sebastian Sieber will take you through calculating how much you will need to retire, understand how CPF LIFE works, and explore ways to maximise your retirement income, such as investing smartly to grow and protect the value of your retirement nest egg.
