Indeed if all are legitimate claims this forum would easily be the leisure field for some top 10% of our local working group with nothing better to do, only they themselves know deep within.

Not surprising to see many high calibre, successful professionals retiring young. These high flyers are usually from the finance sector, hardly any of them are from sectors such as engineering or IT.

They have worked very hard early in their careers, made their fortune and so it is time to enjoy their wealth.

Is it considered too young to retire in SG by 45? Maybe do some light jobs.

We have a fully paid condo and car

Cash+CPF $800k

2 teenage kids.

Condo and car are the biggest household expenses. If you have fully paid them both, your expenses for a family of 4 will not be much. Only about $5k pm is enough. So, you get a simple light job earning $4k pm, your wife can earn $3k pm, so no need to earn so much. Family and life is more important than money.

Thanks for the advise

I will quit my job soon and retire at 45 and relax around.

You certainly doing very well based on your income level. I suppose most of the $1.3m networth comprises of the condon? Going forward you focus on increasing non-property investment so that you can be better diversified.

You will not be able to retire with just 800k given that you are already in your 40's! Unless you sell your condo and downgrade to a hdb 3rm flat or smaller hdb flat. But be prepared for cultural shock.....

If you're in early 30's, then congratulations, you will have more than $2m in non-property investments. You will be getting sufficient returns (in the form of dividends and capital gains) to retire comfortably at 45. And by then your kids will be working and no longer dependents.

How are you planning to retire? If your cash + CPF is $800k, and assuming your CPF is $400k (which you can't use for retirement yet), you are only left with $400k cash which is not enough for retirement. If you really want to retire now, you will need to sell your condo for $1.4m and downgrade to a $400k four room HDB flat. You will then get $1m and plus your $400k cash, you then have $1.4m to invest in 5% dividend yield stocks which gives an annual dividends of $70k pa. Then you must make sure your household expenses is less than $70k pa.
