Choose Your Investment Style Wisely For Maximum Benefit

Jul 19, 2008
Financial planning and management is always a very tricky thing. Choose a wrong way to manage your money and you will be in for a major shock. It is after all your hard earned money. That is why precisely there are people who know various investment options and will work with you to make sure that you make the right choices. These professionals are known as financial planners.

The financial planners will usually know a lot more various investment options than you would know. At most you would have heard about the stock market and the mutual funds. But there are various other investment options like real estate funds, trusts, private equity where you can invest but are not knowledgeable enough to invest.

Above all this investment planning lies the crux of your strategy about financial discipline and management. All this depends up on your risk taking capability and how far do you want to go in the risk versus reward situation. It is this risk taking capability which will determine which investment avenues you will want to invest in. When working with your financial planner make sure that you tell him about the amount of risk you are willing to take.

This risk taking capability also depends on the age at which you are investing. If you are young and in your 20's or 30's then you can take more risk. You have the entire life ahead of you and even if something goes wrong you have a long working career ahead to make money and invest. At that age you do not have responsibilities of home and children. Also there are merits of starting your investing cycle earlier as that gives a huge corpus of money because of the power of compounding.

At later stages your risk appetite slows down as you have more responsibilities like childrens education and a family to take care of. You would most likely try to invest in options where you can feel that at least your capital will not be at risk.

So when you are thinking of investing or are exploring various investment avenues then always think about what kind of risk you are taking and what are the potential rewards that you are going to get. This will definitely modify and mould your investment style. These investment styles will alone then determine where you put your money. Last bit of advice on planning is that never put your eggs in one basket.
