1. What Life Event is Your Target?

First, lets take a look example bellow: Mr. A intended to invest his wealth to buy his dream house before reaching 40. He plans to marry, have children, then buy his dream house. Well then, for you, what life event is your investment target for?

2. How Much Fund is Needed for Important Event in Our Life and How Long it is to Get the Fund?

If goal has been set, then the next step is we need to think the amount of fund needed and how long the investment will be. For fund needed, it is fine just giving rough estimation. Please take a look on the right table as reference

Mr. A has expect the fund needed to buy the house is Rp. As the table in the right, then Mr. A need to prepare 20% of Rp. According to the right table, he need to prepare Rp. 800.000.000 for DP of the house. Mr. A set target to buy the house before reaching 40 years old. Then because he is 32 now, he has 8 years for investing

3. What is the Total of Your Deposit or Savings now?

Simplest reason to invest is to do it with surplus fund. We need to think how to manage fund we already have combined with interest we get monthly, when choosing which product that become our investment target along how high the risk is.

At first, we need to make sure how big our savings and deposit now. This covers our fixed assets which are in the form of cash, savings and or time deposit. Excluding fluctuating assets such as stocks or public bonds

In Mr. A case, he has fund roughly Rp. 500.000.000 after combining all his savings in various banks.

4. How Much is the Fund that Need to be Prepared for Emergency?

What need to keep in mind when investing is never invest all of your wealth. We need to set aside some for daily needs like transportation, shopping, and other expenses. Then we also need to think what wil happen if we got sick, hospitalized, suddenly our business fail, and many other unpredictable events.

Need to be remembered that if we put aside only small amount for emergency, when we actually need it we will be in trouble. But if we set aside too much, then there will be no fund left to be invested. Because of that, as standard letââÅ¡¬ÃƒÆ’¢Ã…¾¢s determine that the emergency fund is 6 times our monthly income. So, as reserve for emergency how much fund we need to set aside?

Our example Mr. A has Rp. 40.000.000 monthly income, with total of 6 months monthly income then he need to put aside Rp. 240.000.000 for emergency fund.

5. How Much Surplus Fund You will Invest?

Let us subtract the savings like explained in number 3 with daily expenses and emergency fund like explained in number 4. The amount that left is fund that is ready to be invested, we call it ââÅ¡¬ÃƒÆ’…Surplus FundââÅ¡¬.

Then how much is Mr. AââÅ¡¬ÃƒÆ’¢Ã…¾¢s surplus fund? Total savings that he has is Rp. 500.000.000 and emergency fund is Rp. 240.000.000, then what remains is Rp. 260.000.000.

6. How Much the Accumulation Amount that We Received Every Month?

There is one more thing. Here, we need to make sure there are fund that we can invest continuously every month.

Accumulating our investment every month can give major impact on investing. When calculating how much remaining fund that is needed for daily expenses, we also need to think how much fund is needed for continuous investment. Every month if you cut your income by daily expenses, transport, hobby, etc, how much fund is remaining in your savings?

Mr. A who is actually good at saving money, although looking from the income he got monthly, decided to invest Rp. 3.000.000 per month.

7. In Order to Achieve the Target, How Much Investment Return Needed in a Year?
