We often find it easy to manage our mutual fund investments on our own. However, over time, the following factors may make this task quite demanding and challenging:
Lack of time available to monitor the
performance of various funds
Complex financial situations
as one nears the career peak
Investment scenario is ever-changing
and some rebalancing may be required
Investment goals are dynamic
A egistered nvestment dvisor has the
requisite training, experience, expertise and resources to offer a customized and comprehensive financial solution.
Your registered investment advisor works closely with you to draw up a financial plan.
Your ability to take risk depends upon how willing you are to endure market’s ups and downs in exchange for more growth potential over the long term.
Your risk-taking ability will determine the allocation to different asset classes.
RISK / RETURN TRADEOFF
Investments that have potential to generate higher returns
are also more risky. Only you can decide how comfortable
you are with that trade-off.
Typically, investors have three primary needs:
Asset allocation will depend on how important
each of these needs are, and therefore how much
investment they require.
Once your registered investment advisor understands your investment goals and assesses your risk appetite, return expectation and time will determine your asset allocation between various assets classes.
It is common human behavior to get caught up by hearsay or
media hype or fear and buy or sell investments at the peaks and
valleys of the cycle.
Since aggressive hybrid funds have a higher allocation
to equities, Raj should invest in aggressive hybrid
funds for his medium to long term goals.
