- Rate of return
- This helps you to determine your risk tolerance and risk preference needed to find out what is your trading plan. This is the rate of return you are expecting from your investments. You can also select the accumulation frequency of your earnings in your investment account. The type of investment you choose has an effect on the actual rate of return. For example, the average annual rate of return for the ASX 300 is about 10.64% since inspection. Bank or savings institutions can pay as little as 1% or even less on saving accounts. It is important to know that future rates of return cannot be foreseen and investments that pay higher rates of return have a higher risk and are more volatile.
