Think about it – you start investing at the age of 25 to 30, knowingly or unknowingly. The EPF is your forced investment straight out of the salary – you don’t realise it till late. Or, your neighbourhood uncle gets you into the ‘best‘ insurance policy.
The entire investing journey lasts for 50 to 75 years well into the sunset years. The question is – what’s your preparation to handle your money through these 50 odd years?
If you are not a finance whiz, chances are that your preparation is inadequate. Having a finance background too is no guarantee that you will handle money well.
In either case, you can fall prey to traps, sweet talk and expert jargon. Most of it is harmful. And it is usually too late before you realise the mistake.
Unfortunately, you can’t change the past.
