Have you ever wondered what would you do for a million ringgit? Spending it all on a luxurious around the world trip? Buying all the branded hand bags that you have been longing for? One million ringgit is certainly enough for most people to retire on, assuming you live a modest lifestyle and the inflation does not go overboard. Of course, the sensible option is to invest in a well-diversified portfolio based on your age and risk tolerance.
