I'm 30. I currently have:
£97k - cash
£194k - property equity
£27k - stocks
£97k - pension; mostly in high volatility equities and corporate property funds
That's £415k or about $500k at today's rate. I'm intentionally high on cash at the moment as I'm looking to increase my property investments. In most cases, I invest here s://.kingsbridge.org/senior-independent-living-atlanta-ga/. I currently earn around £90k pa plus bonus, unmarried, no kids, and own my own home. I'm not very materialistic, so I have an elementary life and tend to spend more traveling.

Hos can you manage to save a lot? 90k that is before tax I assume. I still dont get it how you can save that much with 90k at early age

Donít side step the topic. The topic now is on asking Singaporean women to give up 2 years of their prime to serve NS like all men did.

Aren't you the one who claimed you were unfairly treated because you served NS? Then someone pointed out to you a loophole to not serve NS, no? . Question is, do you want to take the initiative to do it or just whine?

Don't be so dumb. Unless you're born with a silver spoon with lots of cash to migrate before you're 18, you can do that. How else do you expect someone to relinquish his citizenship and leave Singapore before 18 to do NS? The Singapore government isn't so stupid to let you exploit this "loophole". Nevertheless, in the process now of applying to leave. Still, 2 years was already wasted.

So whatís your age and corresponding net worth now? I see many males surpassing their female counterparts leh. Maybe itís not really the 2 years of NS but just you?

Already posted here previously - go check out the previous posts and see what you choose to believe.

Also, does asking females to serve 2 years of NS got to do with men surpassing women in net worth? Thatís because the many males you mention are likely more capable than females anyway. The issue here is to try as much as possible to have everyone start earning $ on an equal footing. Gender equality, woman, is what our very own AWARE has always been preaching about.

This is true. That guy better buck up. Do something instead of whining. Take success of others as a form of motivation and perspective.

...how did my original post trigger this?

My first paycheck out of NUS was $2.6K.
For 6 years, I was drawing between $3K ~ $4K.
Hardly what youíd call a ďhead startĒ.

However, Iím an aggressive saver, and have been accumulating my net worth since I turned 18 by working PT jobs with long hours (and CPF!)
Surely you can give me some credit for that...
