I am a 28 yo and have accumulated about $40k in savings, after setting aside the amount for tuition fee debt (10k, 1 year interest free) and emergency funds (10k). How should i invest this $40k?

I have been working for 3 years, am currently drawing about 4k after cpf and saves 3k each month. I don't have a fixed time frame to bto a new flat, pay for wedding or start a family but reckon i probably should set aside some money for these in the next 3-5 years. I hope to also invest the future savings. What might be the best strategy to grow my money?

Do up a time schedule for your time events. This will include budgeting for your home and wedding costs. Based on your savings rate, you will accumulate $180,000 in cash in 5 years, excluding bonuses and pay increments. Do you need all of it? If not, use a portion of your leftover savings to set them aside for long-term growth.

If you are hoping to use the money for the next 3-5 years, keep them in high-quality assets that do not fluctuate and keep your capital safe.

Investing in your future savings can be done from your existing cashflow.

I can make no recommendations but only some of my own thinking/insights, better avoid the more risky things there:
