  1. Get a forced savings plan

  • When you save in your bank account, RM500 in 20 years will still be RM500. But most banks will offer a forced savings plan. How it works is that every month you put in RM500, and it will be pooled together with other people’s money to be invested. Within a few years, your RM500 can potentially grow to more than RM1000. So with a few years commitment, you will effectively double or triple your savings! There is a bonus as well, most forced savings plan also have insurance elements in it, so you are secure if anything happens to you!

 

  1. Put into EPF

  • With EPF, you get an average of more than 6% per year in compounding interest. That means every year your total money grows by 6%. The more money you have in EPF, the more money you have in your future!

 

  1. Invest in Unit-Trust

  • Unit-Trust is similar to how a forced savings’ plan works as it also pools a lot of people’s money together to go and invest. The difference is that for unit-trust, it is easier for you to take your money out anytime!
