Retiring in the next decade or so? Tips and tricks to apply, right now
Check that you are saving enough – you need a minimum of 12 but preferably 20 times your annual salary to retire in comfort at 65.
Married couples should consider retiring at different times, if possible.
Ensure you’re not investing too conservatively, or inflation will eat you – you need to have most of your portfolio in shares.
Increase your home loan repayments.
Focus on your career – you have a decade to go. In that time, the world of work would’ve changed. Keep your skills honed.
