Hi Seedly,

Currently 21, in NS as a Man. Have started tightening my budget to saving $100 a month & $50 investment into StashAway. My goals are to ORD & find a decent paying job, to hopefully BTO @24 & get keys by 30 & have a smooth life onwards.

Is StashAway low risk portfolio a good place to start?
How are some other ways to generate passive income?
What are some good savings plan / bank account for a couple to start working on for future goals/housing?
What are some ways to finance a degree?

Heyyy brooo. I think you have already started your plans by looking into your options and putting in the effort to save.
Overall i would say, budgeting is very important and by sticking with your budget and ensuring you can save consistently will net you solid gains for this period already.
on investing i would say there are many options you can take, with differing risk. You will have to gauge yourself. Whether you are alright with variations in your return. if not for the amount you are saving singlife is alright as well.
For now staying debt free and growing your capital would be ideal. you can even consider taking classes or courses on investing and maybe learn more so that you can make your on choices coupled with advice that you do seek. jia you and well done on getting started

One key point from me: Find a partner who has the same goals as you. It really helps when both people are aligned, making budgeting/saving/investing a lot easier.

You seem to be on the right track, may be able to take more risk with your investments. Make sure you protect your downside too!

No experience in investing. Robo is good. The the most aggressive portfolio, DCA & close your eyes.

DBS multiplier, SAYE (2% for 2year only)

Passive income:

1) dividend. u need at least $500k to have impactful dividend ~$2k per month @5% p.a.

2) rent your room. But no privacy, tenant maybe dirty person.​​​

Generation of passive income is only possible with sufficient capital. So your priority now is to grow your capital.

If your spare cash can be left untouched for as long as possible (beyond uni) then feel free to dump them in Stashaway's highest-risk portfolio.

If you need the money in 4 years, then either a lower-risk portfolio or other low/no risk portfolios is advisable.

As for financial planning for couples, it really depends on your S.O. I am very particular about my finances so I'm not willing to dump my income into a joint account. Have a chat with your S.O. first.

Need to be clear on the low risk and passive income part. If you're looking to grow your wealth and ...
