Hi! I'm a fresh grad with $13,000 in savings in my POSB Savings. How much would you recommend me to transfer to CIMB, and what should I do with the rest?

I'll be starting to draw a monthly pay soon, but what should I do with my current savings of $13,000? How much should I keep as expenses, and how much should I move to CIMB / invest?

If you are going to be drawing a monthly salary soon, you may wish to look at Seedly's post on Best Savings Acounts for working adults. Capitalise on the Salary credit for additional interest. CIMB will be good for earning no obligation 1% interest.

I would recommend you to set aside about 6 months worth of expenses in a high interest yield savings account. If you are below 26, Jumpstart account would be great! It offers 2% p.a. for your first 20k.

After you have set aside about 6 months worth of expenses I would suggest you to invest the rest!
