This is your expected rate of return for 401(k)( account. Your investment portfolio will determine the actual rate of return of your investment. For example, the S&P had made 7.1% compounded annual return in last 10 years & almost 10.1% annually compounded return in last 43 years by capitalizing the dividends in the capital structure. The S&P’s rate of return was very much fluctuating because its highest income was 61% & lowest income was -43%. This type of volatility in earnings may lead to loss of capital. So, it is better to deposit money in the savings account of Banks for secured return though it offers as little as 0.25% or less interest rate but minimizes the risk of capital loss.Before making any investment, it must be remembered that expected rates of return cannot be forecasted certainly. Investments which offer high rate of return have greater risk and less constancy. So, it is wise to think about the project many times before taking any investment decision.
