Singapore: Post-Secondary Education Account Policy

Global Asset Building

The Post Secondary Education Account Policy established a college savings account for every Singaporean ages 7 to 20 in 2008. This program is one of Singapore’s three national asset-building programs that create a cradle-to-grave asset-building system for all Singaporeans. CSD conducts research on this comprehensive asset-building system, which offers insight into effective design of a universal asset-building system.
