Thinking about retirement early enough is not a bad thing, especially since it will help you plan out your life after retirement. If you live in Sri Lanka, you are likely to retire by the time you hit 55 years, which is quite a young age compared to the average age of 66 years experienced in the U.S according to Dqydj.com.
As people plan to retire, they consider being an investor in a project that will give them a continuous flow of income long after they retire. The experience shows that this strategy works. Look at industries that serve the majority of the world population and stake your investment there.
One of the most innovative and disruptive technologies we are currently experiencing is blockchain, and the fintech industries are taking full advantage of it. Most popular investment experts will agree that investments in the fintech sector have a higher chance of success of adoption of innovative tech that makes transactions and services decentralized, transparent, quick and secure.
Invest or spend, make an entrepreneurial choice
You are 35 and thinking why can’t I start saving for retirement? Good thinking. Spending less and investing in a retirement KITTY is a decision that should be made early enough. But don’t go putting your money idle in a bank account somewhere.
Sure, you can save in a fixed deposit account and enjoy some fixed interest. But that will not be enough to save for a blissful retirement in Singapore, the most expensive city in Southeast Asia.
Think like an entrepreneur and invest in a project with recurrent returns on your investment, think AssetStream.
