Many people that I know invest not to be rich, but simply hoping to be able to retire one day. Likewise, my main goal of investment is to retire.

Naturally, I am curious to know how I will be able to retire. More specifically, how much do I need to invest annually? What rate of return do I need? When I can retire?

To answer these questions, I decided to build a simple simulator. Basically, it assumes that to retire, I need a passive income which comes from the dividends of my investments, and that I will invest some money annually at a certain rate of return until I retire.

Based on current estimation, I would be able to retire within the next 5-7 years.

Go try out this simulator to see if you are on track to your expected retirement or do you need to increase the amount of money you invest regularly.

Alas, we don't live in an ideal world, and ...
