    Pensions versus investments for retirement

    The National Pension Scheme (Occupational Pensions) Act 1998 as amended (the “Act”) became operative on January 1, 2000. This was a good thing.

    It made people aware of their financial future long before they would otherwise have thought...

    Why bother with new year’s resolutions?

    Haven’t we stopped this new year’s resolution business yet?

    I will say at the outset that I have never made any resolutions — ever. I don’t believe in them, yet still wonder why some people do. You never keep them, do you? At least you...

    Planning for your future is simple

    Brace yourself for big waves of spending

    Every one of us complains that we are spending too much. It would be wonderful if we could blame someone else, but we can’t do that.

    Sometimes the husband complains that his wife spends too much at the grocery store (not easy to avoid...

    The desire to panic sell

    In times of an impending hurricane we tend to rush to the grocery store, gas station and hardware outlets to panic buy. Anything we can remotely think about — from candles to duct tape to generators. The world seems to be coming to an end over...

    Working on ‘financial wellness’

    We often hear of “financial literacy” being the current buzz words to help people understand their financial status. Yet does it cover the whole picture? No.
