DIY Insurance For My Wife

Bye bye investment linked policy (ILP). We finally pulled the plug on my wife’s ILP. The one she bought from her ex-classmate after she snagged her first job. Who is no longer even in the company. Or the industry. I spent a little bit of time reviewing her current coverage and decided to make a little adjustment for her. At 60% of her old ILP policy’s monthly cost, I have gotten her four times the coverage that her ILP was giving her. Instead of going via the compareFIRST route, I want with DIYInsurance (by Providend) instead. I trusted the...

Nah The Numbers Don’t Add Up

I read a few personal finance themed blogs here and there. Not just local ones, I mean. Sometimes, they get picked up by social media which tend to result in a particularly share-worthy (click-bait-ish) post. This particular one mentioned a 28 year old New Yorker who has retired with more than $2 million. Woah. Pitchforks! Many of the comments were outright negative and quick to dismiss it.

Gili Lankanfushi : A Sneak Preview

Gili Lankanfushi is quite unlike what my wife and I are used to. Being frequent resort dwellers is one thing, but Gili Lankanfushi has certainly taken this experience up to another stratospheric level.

My wife and I have fairly similar tastes (phew) and it made it easy for us. We love the idea of rustic luxury and it was no surprise that Gili Lankanfushi appealed to both us. An...

A Week At The Best Hotel In The World

At the time of this post, I’m probably somewhere over the Indian Ocean, high up in the clouds. Where am I heading to? Well, how about the best hotel in the world! For one week 🙂 A short while back, I wrote a 3-part blog posts on how to get a good deal for a Maldives getaway, which was compiled from years of experience from travelling, plus employment in the hospitality industry, and I was rather happy to hear from some of you about your plans and especially when you shared where you were heading to. I know, it is so...

The Future is Female Conference : Ticket Giveaway + Discount Code

Based on the demographics of visitors to my blog, it would seem that men are more likely than women to be interested in the areas of personal finance and investment. In terms of the people I know personally, the same trend holds true. Do you notice the same trend as well? Taking a look at my Index Investing Facebook Group, no doubt there are plenty of ladies in it as well but it would be fair to say that guys make up the majority. It came as a surprise when the ladies behind The New Savvy reached out to...
