    Are retirement visa holders allowed to park the 880000 here rather than savings with little or no return?

    How safe is the SET?
    Old age is always 15 years older than my current age.

    Wine improves with age, the older I get the better I like it.

    Your only as young as the girl you feel.

    You only have to show the 800k in bank 3 months before application for extension (2 months the first time). You could then put the money in a mutual fund or invest account and just move 800k into a cash deposit account 3 months before application. A money market or fixed income account might be acceptable, but you would need to check with the immigration office you deal with.

    Is the SET safe? Safe from what? Stock price manipulation in low trading volume shares? No. Are the high capitalization and often high dividend paying companies safe? As safe as in any other country's stock market.
