Over a period of time, the quantum of health insurance required goes up, and so does the premium payable. Rising health insurance premium rates further inflate the bill. That makes many look for larger cover at relatively less price. Some end up buying super top-up policies. Of late, many insurance companies are offering restoration benefit that makes many believe that their existing covers are enough to take care of large hospitalisation expenses.Insurance industry officials tell us that these days some first time insurance-buyers typically want to buy policies with restoration benefit and want to settle for a sum-assured they otherwise would have thought inadequate. At the time of renewal, these insurance buyers may end up opting for the renewal of their base health insurance plan and not renew their super top-up insurance plan as … [Read more...] about Restoration benefit: Should you dump your super top-up policies?
Often, individuals sign up for investment products just by looking at absolute numbers. “Double Your Money” or “Triple Your Money” are some of the best hooks to make someone write the cheque. Such an approach creates an optical illusion for the investor. However, it may not be the best thing to do unless you get into the details. An investor should first ascertain the compounded annual growth rate to figure out if he is being compensated for the risks he takes.This should best be understood with an example.

The only problem is, if you calculate returns this way, you will earn 300% returns in 20 years, 10 years or even four years. The reason why this 300 percent return is optical … [Read more...] about Use compounded growth rate, not absolute return, to gauge investments
