    Not forgetting the 3% or so of dividends! If ppl diligently reinvest the dividends it will accelerate the growth rate further.

    Those afraid of bear markets should allocate a portion of their portfolio to ABF SGD Bond ETF and do annual or 6-monthly rebalancing.

    A simple 2 ETF portfolio can serve the needs of most people locally in terms of growing a sufficient retirement amount in the medium to long term.
