Common mistakes people make while evaluating their risk appetite

Understanding your risk appetite is an essential pre-requisite for your investment planning. It requires you to have a basic understanding of your long-term life goals. You also need to judge your ability to handle unfavourable outcomes. An accurate assessment of your risk-taking ability will help you make appropriate investment choices. For this, you need to avoid the common mistakes people make while assessing their risk appetite.
  • Many a times, when people assess their risk appetite, they end up looking only at the gains or the upside, and don't factor in what they can lose out on the returns or principal, in the interim. When you are facing constraints on regular savings, you would like your money to grow more. This shouldn't be mistaken for a greater risk appetite for you. On the contrary, lower savings amounts should make you more prudent and could make you decide to settle for slightly lower-risk investments.

  • Even when people are aware about the possible losses in an investment, they tend to overestimate their threshold to tolerate losses, even if they are short-term and notional in nature for long term investment. Even when you have alternative savings to fall back upon to fulfill your goal, if your designated investment suffers a loss, you could end up putting other needs at risk. For instance, assume that you are saving aggressively for your child's higher studies and your retirement. You fall short of the amount to meet your child's requirements as some of your investments don't grow well and make losses in the previous years. You might then be tempted to withdraw money from the retirement savings. This would endanger your retired living.

  • You may or may not want to take up risks beyond at a certain level depending on the purpose of the investment. Nearer the proximity of the goal, people prefer taking up lesser risk. For instance, if you are saving for your home down payment in 3-4 years, equity investments will be inappropriate due to short-term market turbulence and the fact that they typically work for period of 8-10 years or more.

  •  Another mistake many people make is not differentiating between loss aversion (avoid losing money) and risk aversion (unpredictable returns). Most people prefer a higher degree of predictability in the return on their investments, which makes them go for conservative products which offer low, but fixed and predictable returns. But, by investing in them, especially for long term needs, you actually end up losing, thanks to inflation devouring the purchasing power of savings. On the other hand, loss aversion can be managed by managing the risks in investments better. This could be done in many ways including making investments in different asset classes be it equity, debt or gold so that some developments affecting some assets and investments don't impact all your investments. Even within the same asset class like equities, the investments can be spread over lower to higher risk alternatives like large and mid-cap funds.

  • A common oversight of investors is to overlook the time when they would need the money that they are now investing. If you know that you might need a part or whole of the savings at a particular point of time, then your investments need to allow you access to money at the time of your need. For instance, if you are investing for your child's higher education where you need the money in 18 years, a 20-year investment will be inappropriate if it doesn't allow you to withdraw the money when you need it. While considering such an investment, you need to ask whether you manage the risk of your money to coming to you at the anticipated time of requirement.

  • Many a times, changes in tax structures and regulatory changes can also have a deep impact on the returns of your investments. That's why it is not a great idea to make an investment solely or largely based on the tax treatment. Remember, new taxes could be introduced and existing ones modified. This is a risk that needs to be factored in. This could disturb all your return calculations, and other aspects such as exit from the investments.

A small investment can rise up substantially over a period of time. HDFC Life Click 2 Invest - ULIP, offers 8 fund options to optimise return on your investment.

The difference that tax benefits make in giving ULIPs an edge over mutual funds

When you are working hard and wish to make your money work hard for you, it becomes essential to stop any leakages in your savings kitty. Paying income tax is inevitable, but if your investment planning is right, you can plug many tax leakages and enhance your overall returns and savings. Unit linked insurance plan (ULIP) is one such product that comes with tax benefits which make it more rewarding than other equity investment products, namely equity mutual funds including tax saving equity linked savings scheme (ELSS).

One aspect where ULIPs score over mutual funds, except ELSS, is the deduction from income of the investment amount of up to Rs 1.5 lakh under Section 80C. This effectively adds to the return from your ULIP funds. So, if you utilise this deduction limit annually, you can save tax up to Rs 46,350/- every year. This savings is effectively directed to the goal for which the ULIP is earmarked, such as retirement. Barring ELSS and retirement mutual funds, no other mutual fund investment provides this benefit. At the same time, there are many other benefits of ULIPs not related to taxation that help them score over these investments. Even of the tax front, there is a crucial area where ULIPs score over ELSS. This holds true for those investing in high to moderate equity investment ULIP funds for their long term goals.

If you have invested in equities through mutual funds, then you might want to de-risk your corpus a few years before reaching your goal, so that both your capital and gains are preserved. This is typically done in a lower risk investment such as debt mutual fund. However, just in case you need the money before 3 years, the entire capital gains gets added to your income and is taxed at the rate applicable to you. For instance, let's assume that you have saved Rs 20 lakh in an equity fund over the years. Suppose you transfer the money to a debt fund two years before the money is needed. If the debt fund provides 8% returns annually, on liquidating the investment, you need to pay income tax of Rs 99,840 due to short-term capital gains, if you are in the highest tax bracket of 30%. This is because capital gains made before completion of three years in a debt mutual fund is treated as short term capital gains. Things might be a little better if you stay invested for more than three years in the debt mutual fund as you will have to pay 20% long term capital gains tax with inflation indexation benefit for the cost of acquisition of the units. Now, compare this experience with ULIPs. A switch to ULIP debt fund or any other fund would be tax-free since the maturity amount is tax free under Section 10(10D) of the Income Tax Act, 1961 subject to conditions specified therein.

ULIPs compete with many other growth investments alternatives such as mutual funds. On matters related to taxation of investment, returns and redemption proceeds, it has some distinct advantages over mutual funds including the tax saving ELSS, especially when it comes to saving for specific needs. Investors would do well to make the most of them.

The above mentioned tax benefits are subject to changes in the tax laws. The tax benefits described above reflect our understanding of the current legislations. It is advisable to re-confirm the same with your tax consultant at your end.
