How much UAE expats need to save for retirement

It’s an oft-repeated question, how much do you need to save to retire? Unfortunately, there is no one right answer to that because when it comes to retirement, every person is different. Some may want to retire early and own a luxury villa or travel the world, while others may want to quit at 65 and live a simple life.

Retirement strategies also vary greatly depending on where the individual wants to retire or how expensive the living costs are going to be. Also equally important is where the retirement money  is invested.
