Default Whats your net worth

I am 35, working in IT for over 10 years, and accumulated a net worth of $370k ( cpf, savings, cash), how do I fare among fellow Singaporeans?

Default my turn

I am a poor man.

34. Working for 8 years.

Cash: 365K Stocks: 200K 2nd Property: Bought at 600K now worth 800K. Outstanding loan of 200K

I don't consider my first property and money in CPF part of networth...

Even if I do, I still consider myself a poor man.

Don't feel sad for yourself poor man.

It's better to be poor than unhappy. When I was your age, I wasn't doing any better than you. But I learnt how to be contented.

At 40, I am now retired and living my life the way I want to. That's because I learnt to be contented with what I have. I told myself at 38 that as long as achieve a passive income of 5K a month, I will retire. I thought I could do so when I am 50.

I managed to achieve my target when I hit 40. And so here I am now. Poor but happy.

You're too modest, given that you have more than $1mio in net worth excluding residence. I presume that these assets are not shared with spouse?

Impressive! Do the amounts include residence property and CPF?

Could you also kindly share your current income levels?
