Placing deposits and property investment are popular investment tools among Asian investors. Given low deposit rates, declining rental yields, and rising living costs, the chance of running out of money during retirement is increasing.
Real interest rates (the interest rate afer inflation) in China, Hong Kong, Japan, and Vietnam are all below zero percent, which makes it impossible to generate income.
