A 3-year university course in Australia costs THB3,576,570 today. In 20 years, the cost will be THB11,470,540*

And that’s just the cost of education fees – for one child – without taking the rising cost of living into consideration. With a growing inflation rate and fluctuating exchange rate, you may find it increasingly tougher to fund your child’s overseas tertiary education.

The longer you wait to fund your child’s education, the more it will cost you. And that could also eat into your retirement fund that you may have set aside. When it comes to your child’s education, it pays to plan early.

Preparing for your child’s education

Choose an investment strategy that will give you capital growth and income yield over the long term, as well as diversify your portfolio to spread the investment risks. As your child grows older, you may consider a more conservative asset mix.

More importantly, review and restructure your plan with your Relationship Manager on a regular basis to ensure that the rate of your investment growth is moving in tandem with the increasing cost of education.
