About Finology Investment Planner

1) How does the Investment Planner help?

Whether you're a beginner who’s started with investing, or you're already a veteran investor, our Investment Planner can help you figure out how to meet your financial goals with diversified asset allocations. It helps to give a clear picture of how much you should ideally save & how much you should invest (financial planning), and where should you invest (asset allocation). We'll walk you through the basics of investing, tell you about different risks and considerations involved to put your money to work.

2) Why you should invest?

Investing lets your money (that you’re not spending) be kept at a place where it can work for you. In simple terms, setting aside some money out of income to get money from it in the future is termed as an investment. The money you invest in stock and bonds can help governments or companies grow, and in the meantime, it will earn you good amount return.

3) How to decide your asset allocation?

If you’re a conservative investor, go with fixed income instruments like FD, Debt bonds, etc. where principal amount remains safe, and investor gets interest over this amount. However, if you’re aggressive, you can go with equity where higher returns can be seen with high risks.

Variables Involved

Risk v/s Returns on Investments:

In general, investing is a trade-off between risk and return. Investments with higher return potential also have a higher risk potential. The out-of-danger investments sometimes barely beat the inflation rate. Finding the rightly balanced asset allocation for you will depend on your risk tolerance and age.

When it comes to investment planning, the closer you are to retirement, the more vulnerable it is to your investment portfolio. So, what's an investor supposed to do? Conventional wisdom says older investors who are getting closer to retirement should reduce their exposure to risk by shifting some of their investments from stocks to bonds.
