  11. 11. Single Window ServicesMeaning of PortfolioA Portfolio is a combination of different investment assets mixed and matched for the purposeof achieving investor’s goal(s). Items that are considered in the portfolio can include any asset,shares, debentures, fixed deposits, mutual fund units to items such as gold, silver and even realestates etc. However, for most investors a portfolio has come to signify an investment infinancial instruments like shares, debentures, fixed deposits and mutual fund units.Diversification of PortfolioIt is a risk management technique that mixes a wide variety of investments within a portfolio. Itis designed to minimize the impact of any one security on overall portfolio performance.Diversification is possibly the best way to reduce the risk in a portfolio.Advantages of having Diversified Portfolio • A good investment portfolio is a mix of a wide range of asset class. • Different securities perform differently at any point in time, so with a mix of asset types, your entire portfolio does not suffer the impact of a decline of any one security. • When your stocks go down, you may still have the stability of the bonds in your portfolio. • There have been all sorts of academic studies and formulas that demonstrate why diversification is important, but it’s really just the simple practice of “NOT PULLING ALL YOUR EGGS IN ONE BASKET.” • If you spread your investments across various types of assets and markets, you will reduce the risk of your entire portfolio getting affected by the adverse returns of any single asset class. 19
  12. 12. Single Window Services What is investing? Investment refers to a commitment of funds to one or more assets that will be held over some future time period. Almost all individuals have wealth of some kind, ranging from the value of their services in the workplace to tangible assets to monetary assets. Anything not consumed today and saved for future use can be considered an investment. For our purposes, investment will mean a measurable asset retained in order to increase one’s personal wealth. Why invest? We invest to improve our future welfare. Funds to be invested come from assets already owned, borrowed money, and savings or foregone consumption. By foregoing consumption today and investing the savings, we expect to enhance our future consumption possibilities. Anticipated future consumption may be by other family members, such as education funds for children or by ourselves, possibly in retirement when we are less able to work and produce for our daily needs. Regardless of why we invest we should all seek to manage our wealth effectively, obtaining the most from it. This includes protecting our assets from inflation, taxes and other factors.What Process Do We Use to Invest? The financial planning process consists of six steps that help you take a "big picture" look at where you are financially. Using these six steps, you can work out where you are now, what you may need in the future and what you must do to reach your goals. These six steps are: 20
  13. 13. Single Window Services1. Establishing and defining the client-planner relationship. The financial planner should clearly explain or document the services to be provided to you and define both his and your responsibilities. The planner should explain fully how he will be paid and by whom. You and the planner should agree on how long the professional relationship should last and on how decisions will be made.2. Gathering client data, including goals. The financial planner should ask for information about your financial situation. You and the planner should mutually define your personal and financial goals, understand your time frame for results and discuss, if relevant, how you feel about risk. The financial planner should gather all the necessary documents before giving you the advice you need.3. Analyzing and evaluating your financial status. The financial planner should analyze your information to assess your current situation and determine what you must do to meet your goals. Depending on what services you have asked for, this could include analyzing your assets, liabilities and cash flow, current insurance coverage, investments or tax strategies.4. Developing and presenting financial planning recommendations and/or alternatives. The financial planner should offer financial planning recommendations that address your goals, based on the information you provide. The planner should go over the recommendations with you to help you understand them so that you can make informed decisions. The planner should also listen to your concerns and revise the recommendations as appropriate. 21
  14. 14. Single Window Services 5. Implementing the financial planning recommendations. You and the planner should agree on how the recommendations will be carried out. The planner may carry out the recommendations or serve as your "coach," coordinating the whole process with you and other professionals such as attorneys or stockbrokers. 6. Monitoring the financial planning recommendations. You and the planner should agree on who will monitor your progress towards your goals. If the planner is in charge of the process, she should report to you periodically to review your situation and adjust the recommendations, if needed, as your life changes.Common Mistakes.It may be helpful to be aware of some common mistakes people make when approachingfinancial planning: 1. Dont set measurable financial goals. 2. Confuse financial planning with investing. 3. Neglect to re-evaluate their financial plan periodically. 4. Think that financial planning is only for the wealthy. 5. Think that financial planning is for when they get older. 6. Think that financial planning is the same as retirement planning. 7. Wait until a money crisis to begin financial planning. 8. Expect unrealistic returns on investments. 9. Think that using a financial planner means losing control. 10. Believe that financial planning is primarily taxed planning. 22
  15. 15. Single Window ServicesINVESTMENT OPPORTUNITIES IN INDIAFrom the Investment point of view following are the main opportunities available for Investment inIndia, each of these schemes fulfills the objectives of investors and these schemes having its ownadvantages and disadvantages but by combining all these major investment schemes we can make thebest portfolio for investor which fulfills the expectation and financial goals of the investor. TheseInvestment opportunities include – I. Stock Market. II. Mutual Fund. III. Insurance. IV. Postal Schemes for Investment. V. Debt market. VI. Real Estate. 23
  16. 16. Single Window Services I. Stock Market – Stock markets refer to a market place where investors can buy and sell stocks. The price at which each buying and selling transaction takes place is determined by the market forces (i.e. demand and supply for a particular stock). Example for a better understanding of how market forces determine stock prices. ABC Co. Ltd. enjoys high investor confidence and there is an anticipation of an upward movement in its stock price. More and more people would want to buy this stock (i.e. high demand) and very few people will want to sell this stock at current market price (i.e. less supply). Therefore, buyers will have to bid a higher price for this stock to match the ask price from the seller which will increase the stock price of ABC Co. Ltd. On the contrary, if there are more sellers than buyers (i.e. high supply and low demand) for the stock of ABC Co. Ltd. in the market, its price will fall down.Advantages of investing in Stock/Share market by Long Term Investment – • One can expect assured returns of 25-30% p.a. if invested for long term in the growing companies. • Investor can receive the benefits of dividend or bonus shares. • Today the INFLATION rate is around 12%, in this scenario investment in the stock market is able to give you the handsome returns compared to other investments. • In the capital market there is no capital gain tax on the profit made by selling of shares after one year by the investor.Disadvantages of investing in Stock/Share market - • Share market is very sensitive and highly volatile so there is high risk involved. • If the investment is made without having proper knowledge, the chances of suffering losses become very high. • As discussed earlier that the stock market is very sensitive and volatile so any political, commercial or global news can affect the market. 24
  17. 17. Single Window ServicesII. Mutual Fund -Mutual fund is a trust that pools money from a group of investors (sharing common financialgoals) and invests the money thus collected into asset classes that match the stated investmentobjectives of the scheme. Since the stated investment objectives of a mutual fund schemegenerally form the basis for an investors decision to contribute money to the pool, a mutualfund cannot deviate from its stated objectives at any point of time.Every Mutual Fund is managed by a fund manager, who using his investment managementskills and necessary research works ensures much better return than what an investor canmanage on his own. The capital appreciation and other incomes earned from these investmentsare passed on to the investors (also known as unit holders) in proportion of the number of unitsthey own.When an investor subscribes for the units of a mutual fund, he becomes part owner of the assetsof the fund in the same proportion as his contribution amount put up with the corpus (the totalamount of the fund). Mutual Fund investor is also known as a mutual fund shareholder or a unitholder.Any change in the value of the investments made into capital market instruments (such asshares, debentures etc) is reflected in the Net Asset Value (NAV) of the scheme. NAV isdefined as the market value of the Mutual Fund schemes assets net of its liabilities. NAV of ascheme is calculated by dividing the market value of schemes assets by the total number ofunits issued to the investors.For example -If the market value of the assets of a fund is Rs.100, 000The total number of units issued to the investors is equal to 10,000Then the NAV of this scheme = (A)/(B), i.e. 100,000/10,000 or 10.00Now if an investor X owns 5 units of this schemeThen his total contribution to the fund is Rs.50 (i.e. Number of units held multiplied by theNAV of the scheme) 25
  18. 18. Single Window ServicesAdvantages of Mutual Fund for an Investor – • Portfolio Diversification • Professional Management • Less Risk • Low Transaction Costs • Liquidity • Choice of Schemes • Transparency • Flexibility • SafetyDisadvantages of Mutual Fund for Investor – • Costs Control Not in the Hands of an Investor • No Customized Portfolios • Difficulty in Selecting a Suitable Fund Scheme 26
  19. 19. Single Window Services III. Insurance Insurance is a basic form of risk management, which provides protection against possible loss to life or physical assets. A person who seeks protection against such loss is termed as insured, and the company that promises to honor the claim, in case such loss is actually incurred by the insured, is termed as Insurer. In order to get the insurance, the insured is required to pay to the insurance company (i.e. the insurer) a certain amount, termed as premium, on a periodical basis (say monthly, quarterly, annually, or even one- time). Concept of Insurance / How Insurance Works The concept behind insurance is that a group of people exposed to similar risk come together and make contributions towards formation of a pool of funds. In case a person actually suffers a loss on account of such risk, he is compensated out of the same pool of funds. Contribution to the pool is made by a group of people sharing common risks and collected by the insurance companies in the form of premiums. INSURANCE COVERSDepending on the circumstances, you may need insurance in the following areas: • Life • Health • Home • Motor • Personal Liability • Professional Liability • Business • Disability 27
  20. 20. Single Window ServicesLIFE INSURANCE: Life insurance is a risk sharing mechanism whereby a policy owner (the insured) agrees toinvest some money with an insurance company that obligates itself to pay money to abeneficiary on the insured’s death. It is a legal contract between an insurance company andpolicy owner.Life insurance needs analysis: The first in determining what type of insurance to buy is a ‘needs analyses. You need toassess the financial impact on your family if the breadwinner should die. You can assess the indifferent ways. 1. The Multiple Earning Method: The amount of life cover you should buy should be 3 to 10 times of your gross annual earnings. It completely ignores your financial resources and needs. 2. The ‘ Human Life Value’ Method: This method values human life at the present value of all future earnings potential. The steps for calculating the amount of cover under this method are as below: • Deduct your personal expenses from your total income. This is the surplus that you leave for your family and for your investments. • Calculate the number of years left in your earning life • (Retirement age-Current age) • Project family expenses up to retirement, allowing for increases due to inflation and other factors. • Subtract any pension benefits that they might get at your death. • Add non-recurring expenses like children’s marriage. • Calculate the shortfall in the total expenses and income. • Calculate the present value of the shortfall. 28
  21. 21. Single Window Services3. The ‘Needs’ Method: This method tries to calculate the amount required by your family to maintaintheir existing lifestyle and their financial goals. The amount of the life cover under thisMethod is calculated by subtracting the total of your current financial resources from thepresent value of your family’s projected expenses.FORMS OF LIFE COVER: Life insurance covers are availably three forms. Each form exists for a differentobjective. These are: 1. Term Plan 2. Pensions Plan 3. Investment-cum-insurance products • Endowment plans • Money-back plans • Whole life plans • Unit linked insurance plans 1. TERM PLANS: In the event of death in the policy period, your nominees receive the amount of your cover i.e. the sum assured. You get nothing if you survive beyond the policy period. 2. PENSION PLANS: Pension plans are actually pure investment products. They provide with an alternate income stream after your retirement. 29
  22. 22. Single Window Services 3. ENDOWMENT PLAN: They also offer some returns on the premiums paid by you. So if you die during the policy Term, your nominee’s get the sum assured plus some returns. Even if you survive the term, you still get back the sum assures and the returns. However, the premium charged for endowment plans is 5-6 times higher than the premium for term plan. 4. MONEY-BACK PLANS: Money-back plans are a variant of endowment plans. In case of the endowment plans, the survival benefits are disbursed at the end of the policy term, while in money-back plans the payback is staggered through the policy period. Money back policy is a policy opted by people who want periodical payments. A money back policy is generally issued for a particular period, and the sum assured is paid through periodical payments to the insured, spread over this time period. In case of death of the insured within the term of the policy, full sum assured along with bonus accruing on it is payable by the insurance company to the nominee of the deceased. 4. WHOLE-LIFE PLANS: The term plan, endowment plans and money back plan provide cover only till a specified age. Whole life plan provides cover till end of life. The insured has to pay premium till a specified age. On reaching that age, the insured has the option to encash the maturity benefits pr continue the cover for his entire lifetime. 5. UNIT LINK INSURANCE PLANS: It can be considered as a combination of mutual funds and term plans. Part ofthe premium paid is linked to the policy period and the sum assured and the rest is invested. 30

  28. 28. Single Window Services 3.2 Presentation of the information either in Tabular form and / GraphicalWhat are Risk Analysis and Portfolio Planning?Risk AnalysisRisk analysis is very important tool for portfolio planning, because each persons risk appetite isdifferent due to reasons like income level, age, mentality, financial goals and objectives. SoPortfolio planner must have to find out the risk appetite of the client with the help of RISKANALYSIS tool. By analyzing the risk of client the portfolio planner came to know whether theclient is AGGRESSIVE, MODERATE, and CONSERVATIVE.Basic Types of Portfolios In general, aggressive investment strategies - those that shoot for the highest possiblereturn - are most appropriate for investors who, for the sake of this potential high return, have ahigh-risk tolerance (can stomach wide fluctuations in value) and a longer time horizon.Aggressive portfolios generally have a higher investment in equities. The conservative investment strategies, which put safety at a high priority, are mostappropriate for investors who are risk averse and have a shorter time horizon. Conservativeportfolios will generally consist mainly of cash and cash equivalents, or high quality fixedincome instruments. To demonstrate the types of allocations that are suitable for these strategies,well look at samples of both a conservative and a moderately aggressive portfolio.Note that the terms cash and the money market refer to any short-term, fixed-incomeinvestment. Money in a savings account and a certificate of deposit (CD), which pays a bithigher interest, are examples. (You can read more about the money market in the.) 36
  29. 29. Single Window Services1. Conservative portfolio: - Conservative model portfolios generally allocate a large percent of the total portfolio tolower-risk securities such as fixed-income and money market securities. Your main goal with a conservative portfolio is to protect the principal value of your portfolio. As such, these models are often referred to as "capital preservation portfolios". Even if you are very conservative and prefer to avoid the stock market entirely, some exposure can help offset inflation. You could invest the equity portion in high- quality blue chip companies, or an index fund, since the goal is not to beat the market. 37
  30. 30. Single Window Services2. Moderately Conservative Portfolio: - A moderately conservative portfolio is ideal for those who wish to preserve a large portion of the portfolio’s total value, but is willing to take on a higher amount of risk to get some inflation protection. A common strategy within this risk level is called "current income". With this strategy, you chose securities that pay a high level of dividends or coupon payments. 38
  31. 31. Single Window Services3. Moderately Aggressive Portfolio: - Moderately aggressive model portfolios are often referred to as "balanced portfolios" since the asset composition is divided almost equally between fixed-income securities and equities in order to provide a balance of growth and income. Since these moderately aggressive portfolios have a higher level of risk than those conservative portfolios mentioned above, select this strategy only if you have a longer time horizon (generally more than five years), and have a medium level of risk tolerance. 39
  32. 32. Single Window Services4. Aggressive Portfolio: - Aggressive portfolios mainly consist of equities, so these portfolios value tends to fluctuate widely. If you have an aggressive portfolio, your main goal is to obtain long- term growth of capital. As such the strategy of an aggressive portfolio is often called a "capital growth" strategy. To provide some diversification, investors which aggressive portfolios usually add some fixed income securities. 40
  33. 33. Single Window Services5. Very Aggressive Portfolio: - Very aggressive portfolios consist almost entirely of equities. As such, with a very aggressive portfolio, your main goal is aggressive capital growth over a long time horizon. Since these portfolios carry a considerable amount of risk, the value of the portfolio will vary widely in the short term. 41
  34. 34. Single Window ServicesPortfolio Planning • After analyzing client’s risk appetite portfolio planner starts his actual work of Portfolio Planning. • Firstly portfolio planner finds out the goals and objectives of his clients for investing in the right direction. • Then he designs the investment of his client in stock market, mutual fund, insurance, FD’s, realty investment and bonds etc. for making diversified portfolio. • After designing the client’s portfolio, portfolio planner discussed his proposed investment pattern with his client and after getting approval from him he actually invest his money. • After making investment, Portfolio Planner has the duty to keep regular watch on client’s portfolio. 42

  47. 47. Single Window ServicesRetirement PlanningThere is currently no clear plan on retirement. You have not really focused on this aspect.

  48. 48. Single Window ServicesAssumptionsFollowing are the assumptions based on the facts and discussions with you.Your income will increase at the rate of 10 % per annum until age 60.Spouse’s income will stop within next 3 years.Rate of inflation at 7 % per annum based on government official rate on Consumer Price Index.Equities investment rate of return at 18% p.a. on long-term basis.Property investment rate of return at 10 % p.a. covering capital gain.Investment-linked equities funds at rate of return of 15% p.a.Investment-linked bond funds at rate of return of 7.5 % p.a.Pre-retirement investment portfolio rate of return should be 12%Post-retirement investment portfolio rate of return = 10% 56
  49. 49. Single Window ServicesRecommendationsCash Flow ManagementThe current cash flow surplus is very low at around 2 Lacs per annum. Based on no change orvery minimal change in lifestyle, we have studied and done an analysis.In recommending changes, we have kept in mind some basic principles:Your lifestyle needs to be maintained as original as possible.Any reshuffling of assets including paying off debts or loans must leave behind enough liquidassets that cater to the 3-6 months’ of emergency buffer fund.Our analysis and recommendations:As you are living with your parents the household expenses are very much in control. We shouldreally appreciate that you don’t have any balance on credit card. In your routine outflow themajor contribution is of EMI of different loans. We will see any alternative available to reducethe EMI contribution.Car Loan (Honda City): - In this case the loan was taken in 2003. As it is higher end car theloan rate is vary low. It comes out to be 6.7% only. So its better we should keep it as it is. Theloan will end in Aug 08Car Loan (Wagon R): - This loan is also at lower side. Interest rate comes out to be 8%. Betterto continue this loan without any change.House Loan: - In this case the interest rate is almost same with other banks so there is hardlyany scope for debt arbitrage.Personal Loan: - This is taken from 3 banks at different time and at different rate. The averageinterest rate of all 3 loans comes out to be 16%, which is slightly on higher side.This is the area where we can think of repaying it earlier.Total outstanding amount is Rs. 1356000/- 57
  50. 50. Single Window ServicesWe have various options available to repay this loan.Your Insurance portfolio shows that majority of the policies are of Endowment type and few areTerm insurances. We have taken out the Loan quotation for all those endowment policies. TotalLoan available is around Rs. 587000/-. Loan interest rate is 9%Current value of your investment in Mutual Fund & Shares is Rs. 976000/- we have a productcalled Loan against Securities. (LAS) current interest rate for that is 13%. We can pledge all theinvestment in those against which 50% loan will be available. i.e. Rs. 488000/- will be availableat 13% we will utilize Rs. 450000/- from that. Surplus of Rs. 38000/- will be available which wewill not utilize as LAS is fluctuating on market, so it will act as buffer to adjust the marketcondition.Currently PPF has much more amount getting 8%. We will withdraw Rs. 319000.Adding above 3 (587000+450000+319000) we will get Rs 1356000/-We can close the personal loan from above amount.Another important point is in LIC loan interest payment is mandatory (4.5 % of loan amounthalf yearly) LAS is CC loan. Hence we can adjust the principle repayment in both the loans asper our wish.Considering that we will repay the principle also then equivalent EMI will be 11338/- 58

  61. 61. Single Window ServicesFinding the lump sum for retirement:To find the lump sum to generate this projected retirement income is sufficient, we first selectthe annual retirement income calculated from the Expense Method at Rs 2902161/-Then we work into two scenarios on the length of time this income is needed.Scenario 1: The principal intact scheme.The Rs. 2902161/- annual retirement income is to be needed perpetually i.e. indefinitely. Here,based on the inflation-adjusted discount rate I, we calculate the lump sum needed for suchinflation-adjusted income generation.You need Rs 29021610/- to have this retirement income perpetually without liquidating any ofthe principal amounts. The amount looks very high. In layman terms, this is the “deluxescheme”. The second scenario will be the “economy scheme”. 69
  62. 62. Single Window ServicesScenario 2: Principal liquidation scheme.The annual retirement income is to be needed for a certain number of years only – normally tothe end of the life span projected. Taking a life span of up to 80 years old + a safety margin of10 years until age 90, we are taking a period of 30 years in which the lump sum accumulated atretirement will be used up together with the interest income generated to provide the per annumamount. Again here, based on the inflation adjusted rate of return i, we calculate the lump sumneeded for such inflation-adjusted income generation.Assumptions: Rate of inflation, I = 7 % Post-retirement rate of return in fixed income instruments, r = 10 %We calculate the inflation-adjusted discount rate i = r – I / 1 + I = 0.10 – 0.07 / 1 + 0.07 = 2.8037 %Using financial calculator or table of values, wheren = 30i = 2.8037 %PMT = 2902161FV = 0Mode = BGN (as retirement income is needed at the beginning of each year)PV = 59990371/-Lump sum needed is about Rs. 59990371/- 70
  63. 63.

  64. 64. Single Window ServicesOur findings:Satish will have 16645437 + 13858882 = Rs. 30504319/- by the time he retire.Satish requires Rs. 66553950/- to fund by the “economy scheme” method based on currentsituation.Actual amount is short to meet the requirement, so the options are:A higher post-retirement rate of return of higher than 10%. During retirement years, assetsshould be invested in very low risk or zero-risk assets. So, this is not recommended.Delay the retirement age from 60 to probably 63. However, this does not meet Satish originalobjective and will be pursued only as a last resort.Reducing the retirement income will meet the lower retirement lump sum.Based on the risk profile questionnaire, Satish has that much risk appetite hence we recommendthe option (d) to adapt. 72
  65. 65. Single Window ServicesInvestment PlanningTo meet the desired retirement lump sum at age 60, the portfolio investment rate of return usedabove is 12% for pre-retirement. However, based on the current portfolio, the portfolio returnrate is only 9.48%.The portfolio needs to be restructured to the followings:Asset Rs Return Rate Weighted Return RateSaving Account 116,950.0 3.50% 0.16%Equities 1,346,000.0 18.00% 9.52%Life insurance 764,053.0 4.50% 1.35%Mutual funds - 15.00% 0.00%PPF 316,789.0 8.00% 1.00%Total: 2,543,792 Portfolio return: 12.03%The recommendations are:Based on the age and risk profile questionnaire, Satish has a moderate risk appetite.
