Blogger: I agreed with one expert’s recommendation, for good financial planning, one should invest in buying a house, buying good stocks, and taking up PA. House can appreciate in price, stock also, if you buy the right one. Mutual funds, well you are paying 6% to enter and another 6% to exit. Buying stock, you paid only 0.6% of commission. PA, you paid RM 400, you probably get 1 million ringgit coverage.
