Of workers across six Asian countries, Indonesians were the best prepared for a comfortable retirement, the "Retirement Wellness Study" found.
The study created an index based on three key retirement issues: health protection, wealth building, and the ability to have an enriched life after retiring, that was calculated on a 100-point scale. More than 6,000 respondents aged 40 to 60 years old, across Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan, China, India and Indonesia, took part in the study.
Indonesians scored the highest on the index, with 72 points, followed by Chinese, which was just 3 points below at 69. The study also found that both Indonesians and Chinese were most confident about their current health and that their healthcare needs would be met during retirement.
