EvaluateWhat should I consider before investing?<p>All investments are subject to risk. Risk refers to the possibility of losing part/all of your investments due to financial market changes.</p><p>By understanding the risks associated with the various investment options, you can better decide on investments that best match your risk tolerance and personal circumstances. Here are some factors you should consider:<br></p><table width="100%"><tbody><tr><td valign="top">a.</td><td style="width:95%;"> <strong>Risk Tolerance</strong> — Consider the amount of risk you are comfortable with and can afford to take. Are you able to handle temporary short-term losses in your investments? Do you have enough savings to absorb the investment risks? ​You can take the <a href="/Assets/members/Documents/Risk_Tolerance_Questionaire.pdf" target="_blank">Risk Tolerance Questionnaire</a>​ (PDF, 0.2MB) to better assess your risk tolerance.</td></tr><tr><td valign="top">b.</td><td style="width:95%;"> <strong>Investment Time Horizon</strong> — Consider the duration of your investments. Do remember that your CPF savings are meant for your retirement. Hence, they are generally for long term purposes unless you are nearing retirement or have a short-term investment time horizon for other reasons.</td></tr><tr><td valign="top">c.</td><td style="width:95%;"> <strong>Overall Financial Situation</strong> — Consider your financial commitments and the amount of money required to sustain your lifestyle during retirement. Do you have other assets set aside for retirement besides your CPF savings? How are these assets invested?</td></tr></tbody></table> <br>In addition, do consider the <a href="/Members/AboutUs/about-us-info/cpf-interest-rates">interest rates</a> you earn on your CPF accounts. When investing your CPF savings, you should do so only if you are confident of earning more than the CPF interest.CPF Investment Schemes15261526
