1st, determine your figure required to obtain financial unbreakability.

Then work backwards to obtain the:

i) Amount of money you can invest (dollar cost average) every month

  • For example, if you are able to set aside $500 per month to invest every month.

ii) No. of years you need to sustain this for (period)

  • Usually done by taking the "Desired retirement age" minus "current age"

  • For example:

    • Current age = 30 years old,

    • Desired retirement age = end of 61 years old

    • the no. of years you will need to continue to invest is up to 32 years (or 384 months).

iii) Annual returns you need to achieve every year

(Note): If your annual required returns are less than 10%, then it is recommended for you to take the passive investor approach and just invest through an Index like S&P500.

  • However, if your required rate of annual return is higher than 10%,

    • then it would make more sense to take the approach of an active investor and add individual stocks into your portfolio.
