Husband and wife, both in our late forties, annual income $75k and $70k respectively. We spend $110k pa and save $35k pa. Our condo is worth $950k and our mortgage is left with only $150k. Our loan to value (LTV) ratio is only 0.16. Some people say we are underleveraged but we are happy with this leverage ratio. In fact, we have enough cash to settle our loan but choose to pay monthly using our CPF. We were lucky that we bought our condo at a good price a few years ago. Our car has no loan. Our cash and CPF is $1 mil in total. Our total net worth is $1.8 mil. Any comments how are we doing financially?

Default Make your money work for you.

While we are busy working hard to earn money, don't forget to make the money we earned work hard for us too.

This was what I did since the first day I started work. Whenever I have saved up some money I would buy some shares. It's been 30+ years now and I continued to hold and add to those shares. Not too sure about the total outlay (probably around $600k), but the shares are worth about $900k+ now. Was above $1m+ before the start of this year. While the share values go up and down along with the economy, I just enjoy the dividends which was around $55k pa for the last 3 to 4 years. Enough to fund our annual overseas holidays and then some.

At the same time we also invested in a condo for rental income. It still has an outstanding mortgage, but the rental income is enough to cover the monthly mortgage payment. The mortgage has another 5 years to go.

As a risk mitigation measure, we also "hoard" substantial cash in FDs and bonds, as well as in CPF. The returns from these sources are not too shabby either. Each year we receive about $50k in interest almost risk free!

When the investment property is fully paid up in 5 years time, we should be looking at a passive income of $150k pa. It will be time to sit back and relax, and let the money work hard for us.

It is not important how you are performing financially. What is most important is that you are healthy, have good relationships with your family and close friends and you are happy.

Anyway since you ask, the benchmark to use is these Cs:

1. Condo - If you own a condo in Singapore, you are among the top 20% of the population who live in private property. You are in the upper class of society.
2. Car - If you own a car, you are among the lucky ones.
3. Cash - Cash is king.
4. CPF - If you have a big CPF balance, your retirement is assured.

Looks like you have all these Cs. So, be happy that you are successful financially.

YOU HAVE ACHIEVED THE SINGAPORE DREAM! CONGRATULATIONS!

80% of the population live in public housing. Clearly you are better off. Be grateful and do charity work to help the poor and needy. Stop wasting time comparing with others. The comparisons will never end. There will always be someone richer than you.

Do you think the richer you are, the happier you will be? If you think so, then you are a stupid fool. Happiness does not lie in your material wealth. It has never been and will never be.
