Regular Savings Plan
If you have downloaded my Insurance Android App – Insurance Returns, a very big thank you and I hope that the App has provided you some form of benefits in understanding the insurance rate of returns of any regular savings plan and single premium savings plan!
What Can The Insurance Returns App Do For You
But if this is the first time you are reading this… do let me share what the App can do for you especially if you have intentions to promote (as a Financial Planner) or buy a Regular Savings Plan like an Endowment Plan or those Single Premium Plans like a Fixed Deposit Plans.
In Summary, rather than appreciating the final value on maturity, e.g. you save $10,000 in total premiums for 10 years and you are expecting to receive $12,000 in projected maturity at the end of the term, which you have made an extra $2,000 from your $10,000… you get it in the form of compounding rate of return in 3.28% per annum.
This would mean that this plan is sound and worth venturing into if most of your savings are merely generating around the range of 1% per annum. But if you are one that is concerned about inflation which is an average of 5% per annum, this plan may not be that attractive because the plan is not working hard enough for you to combat against inflation!
And with the Insurance Returns App, it will save you a lot of hassle of doing the calculation! For example, all you need are to key in the annual premium, the projected maturity, the policy term and you get the compounded return! That’s it!
The Insurance Returns App At Version 1.3
I have recently released my very own (and first) Android App and it’s called Insurance Returns. And if you have an Android Phone/Tablet (preferably those 10.1″) and you are looking for an App that can help you to calculate the compounded rate of returns for your Regular Savings Plan or Single Premium Plan, you can try out this app today!
How Can The Insurance Returns App Help In Financial Planning
Yeah! It’s the time of the year where people have already planned (and went) their holidays, made out a long list of items to buy (to pamper themselves or just anybody in mind) and collecting their well deserved bonus!
And in the usual Financial Planning sense – if you are one of those who are fond of spending away your bonuses (without even thinking and planning), here are a few tips that you may wish to consider to do so first before happily spending (or wasting) it away…
Note: the tips here are meant for your own good and really to help you with your future. Tips mentioned here are not in order of priority as well.
Five Good Tips To Help You With Your Year-End Bonuses
#1 Think Of Your Previous Purchases (Pampering)
Throughout the year, there have been many various types of sales events and the ease of buying things online has even became easier. If you have made your purchases during those times – it’s time to hold your expenses and think twice before spending your bonuses away. You may wish to consider saving a major bulk of it. If you find it hard to do so, just tell yourself you may get to spend a bit more from this saved amount in next year’s sales events.
