Have you ever thought of how much is needed for your retirement? According to the survey by AXA Retirement Scope 2010, most of the Malaysian seems like very aware of the amount of money that they will get after retirement. Actually, this is a good sign as you still know exactly how much you will earn or get after your retirement.
However, there’re many Malaysian do not start their retirement preparation early. Based on my analysis, there’s only 5% of total number of Malaysian are prepared for retirement. And, there are almost 80% of the working adults which in the age range of 25-34 years old think that they are too young to think about retirement, or some of them tend to believe they have enough as they have their EPF savings.
There’s once a time when I thought I’d pursue a career in financial planning as my main job after I changed from my career in the software engineering field to graphics design field. I’ve always been interested in providing financial related information to others. But it would take some time for me to study and take some certifications in order to become licensed financial planner. At that moment, I didn’t give up and found a new way which one step closer to achieve my dream — become a Financial Blogger!
However, i’m just the beginner in this field and need to always explore what kind of work a financial planner normally gets into. After 2 years being financial blogger, I have realized that the longer I stay in financial industry, the more easier in doing business.
