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.

Fundamental Metrics - See More, More Easily
For each listed stock in SGX, there is a profile page (e.g. DBS) that displays the valuation and financial metrics of that stock. Personally, I use it often to learn the historical and current fundamental values of the stock. However, there are limitations to it. 1) Due to space constraint, I can only display partial information. For example, for Valuation metrics, I only show 52 weeks high, low, median, ...
