Investment Planning 1

Hello,

I have just started investment planning 1 subject and am about to tackle the assignment soon.
I was wondering if anyone could offer me any tips or advice to do the assignment especially question 6 which seems the hardest.

Thanks

Hi BB, I am new to InvestED. Still getting familiar with how to use it. I am in my last subject for DFP at Kaplan and am studing the SRP subject. I have passed the exam and have virtually finished the assignment, but I have some questions. Are you able to help. The SRP assignment relates to Feb 2009 version, and the case study is about Richard and Bernadette.

Hi,

I am having trouble as well with this assignment, would appreciate any help with this one. Found all the others to be a piece of cake compared to this one.

IP1 Assignment Case Study

Was wondering if you could give me some direction on the investment products I need to recommend and the level of depth they need to meet the profile of the client.

I have completed everything else in the assignment but when it comes to recommending the products, I am having a lot of trouble finding products that fit into the profile. I have assumed they will be a balanced profile and hence I am using the asset allocation of a balanced investor as per the text. I have tried to select a number of both conservative, balance and growth funds to try and balance the allocation out but can't seem to find the appropriate products.

Am I doing the right thing by using the specific asset allocation of the product? or should I just be using the high level allocation ie 70% Income 30% growth? Do you know the amount you are able to be out by i.e +/- 5%??

If anyone could help me with this, it would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks
Liz

I have unfortunately had to re-submit both of these assignments as I am not yet competent, so any assistance or guidence would be HUGELY appreciated. I am also studying a batchelor of commerce majoring in finance and financial planning, and I think that this has actually been a downfall, as I have answered the questions the way a uni would expect them to be answered and over complicated things.

I am not looking to be handed answers, but would truely appreciate being pointed in the right direction on these assignments. I also think that establishing a good relationship now could act as a foundation for a study group for the exams. I am happy to post the assignments up here, and maybe what I have completed thus far, if I can find someone who is interested in assisting me? Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!!!

I stated the the purchase price of the bond with 318 days remaining was $101,049 but the remarks state to check my calculations.

Q2
again the marker said to check all my figures to my calculations

Calculate to the nearest dollar the present value and net present value of the couples invesmtent property

.................................................. ....................................

PV=$14,235 $13,860 $13,091 =$414,252

PVTotal = $14,235 + $13,860 +$13,091 + $441,252 = $455,438

NPV = $455,438 - $418,000 = $37,438

Calucluate the internal rate of return of this investment
IRR 16.1%
Calculate the property intiial yeild percentage for year one based on the figures given.

14,235
.......... = 3.41%
418,000

Are you able to explain to me what I have done wrong???

Thank you for your help, i truely appreciate it.

Tony

Hi All,
I am doing the Investment Planning 1 assignement and really need some help with the majority of it. I have not had a great deal to do with Invesment Planning in my occupation as I mostly deal with risk. Is anyone kind enough to have a completed assignment that I could view for some guidance?
