15 Investment Fundamentals-- Ability of investment plan to absorb loss Personal tolerance for risk Aggressive Moderate Conservative Risk Tolerance

26 Investment Options--Other Investments Real estate Stock options Futures and commodities Collectibles
27 Investment Options--Mutual Funds Your money is pooled with that of other investors Fund invests dollars according to stated investment strategy You own a portion of the securities held by the fund (instant diversification)

29 Potential Return Investment Options - Mutual Funds International funds Stock funds Bond funds Money market funds Risk Balanced funds Three major investment categories: Money market funds Bond funds Stock funds Mutual funds fall all along the risk-return spectrum (e.g., balanced funds, international funds) Active vs. passive management
30 Investment Options--Mutual Funds Advantages Disadvantages Diversification Professional management Small investment amounts Liquidity Value of shares can fluctuate daily Portion of fund dollars may be tied up in cash for liquidity needs Potential tax inefficiency Mutual fund fees and expenses
31 Investment Options -- Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs) Most ETFs are based on an index Passive management may lower fund costs Can be traded throughout the day, bought on margin, and shorted, like stocks May provide tax efficiencies
32 Investment Options -- Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs) Before investing, investors should carefully consider a fund s investment objectives, risks, and charges and expenses. These can be found in the prospectus available from the fund, which should be read carefully before investing.
33 Investment Methods--Dollar Cost Averaging Invest same dollar amount at regular intervals over time You buy more shares when price is low, fewer shares when price is high Average cost of shares will be lower than average market price per share during your investment time period Five Hypothetical Investments $35 10 shares $30 12 shares $25 15 shares $20 $15 20 shares $10 $5 30 shares $0 Jan Feb Mar Apr May Average market price per share ($30 + $10 + $20 + $15 + $25) 5 = $20 Investor s average cost per share $1,500 invested 87 shares bought = $17.24 This is a hypothetical example and does not reflect the performance of any specific investment. Dollar cost averaging can t guarantee you a profit or protect you against a loss if the market is declining.
34 Asset Allocation--Considerations Factors: Diversification Risk tolerance Time frames Personal financial situation Liquidity needs
35 Asset Allocation -- Sample Allocation Model A conservative asset allocation model will tend to focus on preserving principal Cash Alternatives 25% Conservative Bonds 50% Stocks 25% These asset allocation suggestions should be used as a guide only and are not intended as financial advice. They should not be relied upon. Past performance is not a guarantee of future results.
36 Asset Allocation -- Sample Allocation Model Moderate Bonds 40% Cash Alternatives 10% Stocks 50% A moderate asset allocation model will tend to balance predictable income with potential growth These asset allocation suggestions should be used as a guide only and are not intended as financial advice. They should not be relied upon. Past performance is not a guarantee of future results.
37 Asset Allocation -- Sample Allocation Model An aggressive asset allocation model will tend to focus primarily on potential growth Bonds 15% Aggressive Cash Alternatives 10% Stocks 75% These asset allocation suggestions should be used as a guide only and are not intended as financial advice. They should not be relied upon. Past performance is not a guarantee of future results.
38 Income Tax Considerations Pretax Dollars Deductions are made from your paycheck before taxes are calculated The result can be lower out-of-pocket costs Some examples: Health or dependent care Transportation costs Retirement plan contributions (e.g., 401(k)) Tax-Deferred Growth No taxes are due until funds are withdrawn from the account In certain cases, qualified distributions are tax free Some examples: 529 college savings and prepaid tuition plans Retirement plans--traditional and Roth IRAs Penalty tax applies in some situations (early withdrawals, nonqualified distributions)
39 The Value of Tax Deferral $70,000 $60,000 $50,000 $40,000 $30,000 $20,000 $10,000 $0 Taxable vs. Tax-Deferred Growth Taxable investment $57,435 ($41,353 after tax) Tax-Deferred Investment $35,565 $20,000 invested in Year 1 6% annual growth rate 28% tax rate Taxes paid with account assets This hypothetical example is for illustrative purposes only, and its results are not representative of any specific investment or mix of investments. Actual results will vary. The taxable account balance assumes that earnings are taxed as ordinary income and does not reflect possible lower maximum tax rates on capital gains and dividends which would make the taxable investment return more favorable thereby reducing the difference in performance between the accounts shown. Investment fees and expenses have not been deducted. If they had been, the results would have been lower. You should consider your personal investment horizon and income tax brackets, both current and anticipated, when making an investment decision as these may further impact the results of the comparison. This illustration assumes a fixed annual rate of return; the rate of return on your actual investment portfolio will be different and will vary over time, according to actual market performance. This is particularly true for long-term investments. It is important to note that investments offering the potential for higher rates of return also involve a higher degree of risk to principal.
40 Saving for College 529 plans College savings plans Tax-deferred growth and potential Individual account tax-free earnings Withdrawals Pre-established portfolios not used for college Returns not subject guaranteed to income tax and Can be a used penalty at any college Can join any state s plan Fees and expenses with each type of plan Prepaid tuition plans Prepay tuition today Return guaranteed--in form of tuition Investors should consider the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses associated with 529 plans carefully coverage before investing. More information about 529 plans is available Limited in the to issuer's your state s official plan statement, which should be read carefully before investing. In-state public Also, colleges before investing, consider whether your state offers a 529 plan that provides residents with favorable state tax benefits. The availability of the tax or other benefits mentioned may be conditioned on meeting certain requirements.
41 Retirement: Start Now Don t put off planning and investing for retirement $800,000 The sooner you start, the longer your investments have a chance to $700,000 grow $679,500 $600,000 Playing catch-up later can be difficult and expensive $500,000 $400,000 $300,000 $200,000 $100,000 $254,400 $3,000 annual investment at 6% annual growth, assuming reinvestment of all earnings and no tax $120,000 $ Age 20 Age 35 Age 45 This is a hypothetical example and is not intended to reflect the actual performance of any investment. This illustration assumes a fixed annual rate of return; the rate of return on your actual investment portfolio will be different and will vary over time, according to actual market performance. This is particularly true for long-term investments. It is important to note that investments offering the potential for higher rates of return also involve a higher degree of risk to principal.
