Do you know? 57% of Singapore respondents have concerns about the impact of economic slowdown on their financial goals, according to Manulife Asia Care Survey 20231

Uncertainty can throw you off-course in your pursuit of dreams, but Manulife is here to keep your dream safe.

How to invest for your goals? 

You should never put all your eggs in one basket but put the right number of eggs in different baskets. Utilize various types of investment solutions to achieve your financial goals.

1. Grow your wealth: You can choose from diverse funds offered in the investment-linked plans (ILP). Providing  the potential for better returns while allowing you to control the level of risk based on the ILP fund(s) you have selected according to your risk appetite and investment objective.​

2. Build your nest egg: Consider lower-risk investments, like savings insurance plans that offer guaranteed payouts2 and return upon maturity with protection benefits.

3. Plan ahead of your retirement:  Retirement insurance plans provide you with monthly income over a lifetime3, or your choice of 54, 10, 15 or 20 years.

4. Plan for emergency: You should have 6 – 12 months cash savings of your living expenses to protect yourself for life uncertainties. You can consider adding on protection coverage to your investment-linked policy from the unexpected critical illnesses or medical expenses.

Depending on your risk profile, your investment portfolio can be classified into three types depending on the proportion of risks – growth, balanced and conservative.

In general, young investors usually have more time on their side and can tolerate higher risk, while middle-aged investors face greater financial pressures and can tolerate only moderate risk. Senior investors, on the other hand, lack stable sources of income and should therefore focus on capital preservation.

You can consider the 5Rs: Risk, Return, Right Mix, Rebalancing and Review. Read this article which demonstrates to you on how one should go about diversifying and allocating your assets. Learn more.

You can consider investment-linked plans that allow your regular basic premiums to be invested in ILP fund(s) units of your choice.

If you plan to actively manage your ILP fund(s) choices in response to market conditions, look for a plan that offers you free, unlimited fund switches throughout the investment period.

You can also look out for bonuses and rewards on selected solutions to increase your potential returns.
