A savings plan announced in the UAE recently will help subscribers become millionaires in as little as three years. Savings and investment firm National Bonds said the scheme lets residents hit the Dh1-million mark with monthly contributions made to the plan and expected profits offered by the company.

Called ‘My One Million’ plan, monthly profits are reinvested to maximise returns.

Subscribers can choose a tenor ranging between three and 10 years. Monthly installments depend on the duration of the plan — higher the term, lower the contributions. Subscribers can also choose to invest their savings in the scheme as an upfront payment, which will reduce the monthly contributions.

Assuming you are starting with zero upfront payment, these are the monthly contributions you would need to make to get to your first Dh1 million in three to 10 years.
