This is part of our new series where we compare CPF against other financial assets.
Today, we are comparing CPF SA against SATS (S58.SI) because while we were building our SIA comparison, we found SATS to be a much more interesting story than SIA.

Don’t worry, we will publish our SIA comparison soon, just as you requested
If there are other assets you would like us to compare against next, let us know in the comments below.

About SATS:
SATS Ltd. was founded in 1972 and is based in Singapore.
The company was formerly known as Singapore Airport Terminal Services Limited.

It is Asia’s leading provider of food solutions and gateway services.
It operates in three segments: Food Solutions, Gateway Services, and Others.

The company serves the airline, hospitality, healthcare, food, and air freight and logistics industries, as well as government.

CPF Assumptions:

  • From Jan 2000 to Dec 2019, $100 is contributed into CPF via the Retirement Sum Top Up Scheme (RSTU).
  • The money earns 4% p.a. interest and the extra CPF interest is excluded for simplicity sake.
    In reality, the CPF returns would be higher than what is calculated due to the extra bonus interest (up to 6% in total).
