Money Hacks 

Episode 12 

Duration: 8 mins 

Synopsis: In this new podcast series for 2018, The Straits Times and The Business Times offer tips for the newcomer to the financial investment scene. 

How can you plan your finances better in your 40s, while keeping an eye on the future, and the cost of inflation? Is youth an asset when you're in your late 20s, when it comes to taking more financial risks to grow your money?

What can you also do at the age of 18, if you want to think ahead before falling to the pressures of the rat race and putting aside financial planning till it's too late?

We ask Mr Vasu Menon - vice-president and senior investment strategist at OCBC Bank Singapore - for his thoughts on our scenarios.
