Morning all Wealth management seems to be the logical choice for this post. has anyone either retired to Asia? Or is anyone currently looking at their options? I am not 50, and the under 50 years of age, term deposit clause for Malaysia is a bit steep. http://www.thaiembassy.com/retire/retire.php http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malaysia_My_Second_Home The Philippines looks a good bet to establish a second residence with a (minimal) $20k term deposit when under 50; http://pra.gov.ph/main/srrv_program?page=1 I have lived and worked in Asia for many years, culture shock and day to day living isn't any sort of issue. I have lived and worked in all three countries, Thailand more than the others. In order of preference i would like to reside in Thailand. Malaysia then the Philippines, but i feel i need to move a bit faster that the restrictions on retirees age for all these visas would allow. Am looking for first hand feedback on the visa systems and in particular, reliable banking services in the three countries. thoughts?
