1 year challenge

If talking about indispensable things for investment, it is to set goals for investment portfolio, and also the questions, what are we intending to invest for? And how long will it take? Although the goals of each person are different but the mutual plan is proper planning and monitoring. On the new year occasion, we would like to invite everyone to do a challenge for investment plan in 1 year and see the result. The recommended steps are as follows:


Planning will be more efficient with investment reviews over the years and analyze about what is results of the previous plan? and which parts should be improved? But, if you have never invested, let start with the assessment of income and expenses, also clearly divide the money that you want to invest by considering the savings and expenditure plans in order not to affect the financial status and daily expenses.

Another part that should be assessed is the risk tolerance which has 2 main factors, first, the ability to take risk by considering the age range, income, environment and the second is investment expertise and the willingness to take risks based on attitudes, tastes, decisions, etc.

Set the goal

For short-term investment, it is suitable for the investment that focuses on safety, has low to moderate risk and has high liquidity. Therefore, create a careful investment portfolio by choosing to invest in money market fund or fixed income fund. In contrast, if the goals could be downgraded, for example, if you need to invest to buy something that the value might decrease in the case that the returns are less than expected, you should move to more risky investments and increase your investment in some stocks in mixed funds (bond and stock). More example, increase investment in stock funds in the right proportion for increasing more return but possibly limit the risk to a moderate level, etc.

If the investment in this section works well, you also could continue to plan towards medium-term and long-term goals. However, the risk should be diversified by clearly separating the investment proportion for reducing the impact of market fluctuation.
