1 Because you should retire from work, not life. Retirement plans. By HSBC.

2 A new beginning Retirement will be a significant new chapter in your life. A new beginning that will bring new opportunities, new freedom and new discoveries. Recent research indicates that 71% of Singaporeans want to spend more time with family and friends, while 63% aspire to travel more when they retire 1. For a fulfilling retirement, you don t want to sacrifice your family s or your quality of life due to constrained finances. Retirement is an exciting, enriching and empowering experience if you take the time to prepare for it properly. In recent years, the global economy has been quite volatile. This volatility, coupled with longer life expectancy, means that you not only have to start saving earlier for your retirement, but also to protect your funds against the effects of inflation and other economic uncertainties. 1 Source: The 2013 HSBC Future of Retirement Singapore report

3 Managing the challenges Recent research indicates that Singaporeans have the third longest life expectancy, living an average of sixteen years after retirement (illustrated in the chart below). This gives an indication of the level of savings you will need to cover your living expenses during retirement. Regional average life expectancies and retirement ages Fully Retired Age Semi-Retired Age Source: The 2011 HSBC Future of Retirement global report According to the latest research, Singapore respondents expect to spend 17 years retired, while their savings will only last 9 years 2.High living standards and long life spans indicate the amount of savings you will need to cover your living expenses during retirement; but there are several specific challenges you need to think about. Surging inflation From inflation of 0.9% 3 ten years ago, to inflation of 4.1% 4 now, the cost of living is rapidly increasing. If we wish to maintain our current lifestyle, we have to keep up with the ballooning price levels. Rising medical costs Total medical costs in Singapore is expected to rise at an annual rate of 6.4% to hit S$22 billion by the end of this decade 5. The older you get, the more you tend to need to spend on health care. Singapore s aging population More than a quarter of Singapore s population will enter their silver years by The low birth rate and rapidly increasing inflation rate makes it imperative to start saving early for your retirement. This way, you can maintain financial freedom. 2 Source: The 2013 HSBC Future of Retirement Singapore report 3 Source: The Monetary Authority of Singapore, Inflation Monthly, January Source: The Monetary Authority of Singapore, Consumer Price Developments in December 2012, Singapore, December Source: Be mindful of rising healthcards cost: Balakrishnan by Alice Chia, July 15, Source: Sustainable population for a dynamic Singapore, August 6, 2013

4 Set your goals and take proper steps in planning your retirement To make sure you can enjoy the retirement you want, you need to start making plans now. Take a few moments to give clarity on YOUR RETIREMENT NUMBERS: 1 Target retirement savings 2 Retirement savings period 3 Protection 4 Post retirement living expenses What is your desired age for retirement? What is your preferred retirement lifestyle? After setting your desired retirement age and projected monthly living expenses, your Relationship Manager can help work out your required monthly savings. This is the number of years you have to plan for retirement. If your current age is 30 and you want to retire at 65 years old, then you have 35 years to save for retirement. This is the protection amount for your family e.g. How much do you need to support your family? And for how long? Would this amount be different if you are not around to support them? How much are your unpaid debts e.g. Mortgage balance? What is the estimated reserve for your children s education? If you plan to live in your own property after you retire, then you have to reserve enough for basic overheads such as utility costs and management fee. Medical expenses may vary depending on how healthy your lifestyle is. Other living expenses such as food, leisure, transportation and clothing will largely depend on your desired lifestyle. The earlier you start, the closer you are to meeting your retirement needs. Net Asset Retirement Planning 2 Retirement savings period 4 Post retirement living expenses 3 Protection 1 Target retirement savings Start early Start late Retirement savings period Retirement income period The diagram and information shown are hypothetical and for illustration only. Age Note: Please note that your savings returns may go down as well as up. The diagram and information shown are hypothetical and for illustration only.

5 Delay can be expensive Waiting too long to start your retirement savings plan can have a huge impact on your savings effort. A delay of just a few years may increase your monthly savings by thousands of dollars as the following table shows. Monthly savings required at your current age to maintain a post retirement living standard of S$5,000 until age Desired Retirement Age Current Age Required Monthly Savings (SGD) , ,000 1,800 1, ,800 4,900 2,500 1, N.A. N.A. 10,000 3,700 For example, let s say you are 30 and your goal is to retire when you are 65 and maintain a monthly income for living expenses equivalent to S$5,000 today. Delaying the start of your savings plan by, say, 10 years (from age 30 to 40) means you would have to save S$600 more per month to reach the same target. So the earlier you start saving for your retirement, the less you will need to contribute monthly. Your wealth will also continue to grow with compound interest over the long-run. 7 Source: According to HSBC s 2013 Future of Retirement Singapore report, respondents say they will need an average household income of S$60,400 per year (S$5,000 per month), for a comfortable retirement. 8 Source: The illustrative value is based on an average annual growth rate of 8.60% (gross) and the assumed inflation rate is 2.00%. All data shown are in today s value. The Required Monthly Savings (SGD) amounts are rounded up to the nearest hundred. Note: All numbers shown are hypothetical and for illustration only.

6 The products that may help meet your retirement needs Insurance Investment Your needs in retirement planning Benefits of using insurance plans as retirement planning tools Your needs in retirement planning Benefits of using wealth products as retirement planning tools Secured retirement income You will want your savings to have guaranteed returns and provide a regular income flow throughout your retirement years. Lump sum withdrawal At the point you start your retirement, you may need the flexibility to withdraw a lump sum to get a comfortable start to your retirement. Regular income flow Many annuity products in the market can offer a regular stream of monthly annuity payments while offering guaranteed returns and revisionary bonus 9. Lump sum payment Target saving insurance plans offer lump sum payment at maturity to help achieve wealth accumulation target at the time of retirement. Potential returns You will want income source to fulfill your desired retirement lifestyle. Income source Certain wealth products deliver stable and predictable coupons/ dividends as a stream of income and repayment principal at maturity. Diversification You can also build a portfolio with suitable asset allocation tailored to your target return to help provide capital appreciation and/or a regular income source upon retirement. Possible products Bonds, Unit Trusts. Enhance potential returns You will want your money to work harder for you to counter the low-interest rate environment. Extra protection You will want your plan to provide extra protection to keep your family secure. Enjoy growth potential Investmentlinked life insurance plans combine investment with insurance cover and provide the flexibility to manage the portfolio with a range of investment choices. Extra cover Many insurance plans offer additional coverage against major illnesses, hospital cash, accidental death, terminal illness and unemployment to give extra financial support to your family. Secured wealth You will want to preserve your cumulated wealth to keep your family secured. Predictability Certain wealth products offer payment principal at maturity and exhibit low correlation to other asset classes, bringing relative stability to a portfolio. Some structured products can provide you with the opportunity to earn higher potential yield. Possible products Bonds, Structured Products (Structured Notes, Structured Deposit, Dual Currency Plus). Provide capital preservation You will want to choose low-risk annuity products which allow you to preserve your capital. Capital protected Choose life protection products that offer guaranteed payment periods and returns to protect your retirement savings. Flexibility You will want flexible payment terms to meet your needs at different times. Flexible choices Insurance plans can provide various choices of payment terms and accumulation period to suit your needs. 9 Subject to product features and applicable terms and conditions. Please note that withdrawal of revisionary bonus is subject to penalty and the amount that you get is less than the revisionary bonus amount. Withdrawal of revisionary bonus will also reduce level of savings in your policy. Note: Investment involves risks. The income (if any) from investment choices may go down as well as up. In the worst case scenario, the value of the investment choices may be worth substantially less than the original amount you have invested. Please refer to the last page for important notes.
