True. Many doors only open after you hit certain milestones. Some of the things that should be corrected.

i was also a foot soldier bro. i had $0 to my name when i grad some 20+ years ago...2 things i live by which actually many bros here reiterated many times...
1. "those who know compounding, earns it. those who don't, pays for it"
2. "its not how much u make, its how much you spend".

These are simple statements but to me they are powerful enough to affect ALL aspects of one's financial health...

this i agree...like fundsupermart's BOND EXPRESS...only open to accredited investors..allowing AIs to buy bonds at denomination of just $5K per lot...i used it to buy several High Yield or JUNK bonds which normally i would not buy at 250K a lot...i called it my "junk portfolio".
This I feel should be opened to everyone.

Some will allow u to buy the bonds w/o being an AI...some more 'strict'...require u be an AI first before allowing u to buy...u would need to check with the dealer which group they belong to...

To be an AI, just submit the necessary documents showing your net worth - savings deposits,..house ownership,...investment etc..as long as more than $2 mil....u are good to go. Again some dealers are more strict with the declaration,...such as joint account take 50% haircut etc..some more relax. so need to check around.

Or have an annual income of at least S$300K.

The base interest is credited on last day of same month. The bonus interested is credited a few days later.

Able to explain more details to bros here how to exploit compounding? What investment vehicle did you use for this compounding effect?

Fully agreed with you. Especially point #2.
In many case, we spend on something we do not really need or spend excessively due to preference to certain brand or status.
This happen to Japanese some 20 years back. Once people understand this, spending habit changed and price start going down due to lost of market share. So much so you may find now a day travelling to Japan, the spending is more or less about the same as Singapore.

We eat our own "food" by spending without control.

One good place to look at these number is from your yearly CPF statement.
Another good example is from your insurance saving plan vs deposit in bank account or CPF.
Insurance company do not pay "compounding". You may get bonus every year, but you do not get interest for your bonus earned. AND you are not paid until you complete the whole plan.

If you put the same amount in bank/investment, you either get interest for the interest/bonus earn or you can withdrawn it a spend it earlier. At the end of fix time frame (insure period). You will find you get much lesser then expected from a insurance plan.

Depends. My WL and endowment plans are paying me 4-5% pa compounded returns, the longer I hold the better my returns.
