Investing Resources

Mutual Fund Selection Worksheet (TT07B)
Using TT07, this worksheets shares key criteria for finding good mutual funds and shows where in Morningstar website to find the information.

Key Sources of Financial Information (TT10)
This document gives key sources of financial information.

Investment Process Spreadsheet (TT13)
This spreadsheet helps you as you build your portfolio. It divideds your portfolio into the asset classes, and helps you see what your planned allocation is, what you already have, and what you will need to buy to come to your target allocation.

Possible Benchmarks for Investment Plans (TT15)
You never choose an asset class without a benchmark. This document shares possible benchmarks for the major asset classes.

A Risk Tolerance Test (TT16)
One of the key parts of investing is the process of determining your asset allocation, which is essentially your portfolio risk. This document takes you through that process. We start with the rule-of-thumb of your "age in bonds," and then we adjust that rule based on how you answer 8 different questions. This tool helps you to see if you are a "very conservative," "Conservative," moderate," "aggressive," or "very aggressive" investor. The key is to invest at a risk level you are comfortable with.

Portfolio Attribution Example (TT17)
This tool helps to separate returns into returns from asset allocation and returns from stock selection. This is for the very advanced investor.

Return Simulation for Asset Classes (TT23)
Investors often don't understand what standard deviation means as a measure of risk. We calculate returns for asset classes, some going back to 1926, and standard deviations as well. Then we build a number of different portfolios using random numbers. This tool helps you see and visualize the different possibilities that could occur assuming 20 year portfolios.

Expected Return Simulation and Benchmarks (TT27)
Investors need to come up with an expected return forecast for their portfolio. This is often hard to do. In this tool we bring in actual returns from the various asset classes over 1, 10, 25, 50, 80, and 85 years (updated to the most recent year), and then based on the asset class weights, you can see what a portfolio of assets would have returned given your specific asset allocation. This expected return is then used as an input into your Investment Plan. (Please note that since some of the largest pension funds in the world currently us expected returns of 7.5% or less, we strongly recommend individuals follow their example.)

Taxes on Security Earnings including Qualified Dividends (TT32)
This document helps explain taxes on security earnings and how different assets and earnings are taxed differently. It also helps you determine if a stock's dividend is qualified, i.e., does it receive the preferential tax rate?

Calculating After-Tax Security Returns (TT33)
It is often tedious to calculate individual before-tax and after-tax returns. This tool allows you to input the beginning and ending NAV, any distributions, your tax rates and inflation, and it calculates individual and portfolio returns before-tax, after-tax, and after-tax and inflation, all key returns for the investor.

After Tax ETY and after Inflation Returns (TT26)
In addition to taxable assets, often there are securities with specific tax advantages, i.e., muni bonds, treasury bills and bonds, etc. Becuase these assets have tax advantages, it is necessary to calculate equivalent taxable yields to be able to compare their returns to fully taxable alternatives. This tool helps in that process.

Investment Expense Tool (TT43)
The purpose of this spreadsheet is to show the overall impact of investment fees on future returns, and the percentage loss from those fees given specific assumptions. The true costs of investment expenses are not only the fees paid, but also the Future Value of the loss in portfolio value from the expenses paid, i.e. the loss from the time value of money.

Retirement Planning Tools

Retirement Planning Needs (TT06)
The purpose of this spreadsheet is to give an Excel template for calculating the amount of money you will need to save each month or year given the specific estimates you input for your retirement variables. Please use wisdom and be conservataive in your input variables,

Roth versus Traditional - Which is Better? (TT28)
The following is a spreadsheet to help you determine whether the Roth or the Traditional IRA or retirment plans (401(k) versus Roth 401(k), 403(b) versus the Roth 403(b)) is preferred based on the assumptions you choose.

Retirement Planning Ratio Forecasts (TT25)
The purpose of this spreadsheet is to give an Excel template for determining where you are in your progress toward your retirement goals. Special thanks to Ryan Huling who put together the idea for this spreadsheet. It is based on the article from the WSJ by Jonathan Clements on: "Ugly Math: How Soaring Housing Costs are Jeopardizing Retirement Savings," March 25, 2005, p. D1. The article makes some major assumptions which include: 1. Investors will earn 5% morethan inflation; 2. Investors will save 12% of pre-tax income every year from age 30 to 65; and 3. Investors will withdraw 5% of portfolio value each year.

Social Security Worksheet (TT36)
This spreadsheet helps you to determine how much you will receive from Social Security given your Average Indexed Monthly Earnings and when you decide to start taking benefits. It also helps calculate your Family Maximum.

Wills and Estate Planning Tools

Utah Advance Heath Care Directive (TT14)
An Advance Health Care Directive (also known as an “Advance Directive”) is a form that helps others give you the care you would want when you cannot make decisions. The first part of the form lets you name your health care agent. The second part of the form tells others how to make end-of-life care decisions for you. Other names for parts of the form are “Special Power of Attorney for Health Care,” “Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care,” or “Living Will.” (from the Utah Commission on Aging)

Estate Planning Spreadsheet (TT40)
This spreadsheet is to help in your planning for estate taxes.

Other Internet-based Resources

Choosing who we listen to is very important when learning about Personal Finance, as there is a lot of incorrect and misleading information available. We would encourage you to ask three questions when evaluating sources of personal finance information.

First, what is their affiliation? Is it a government agency, a non-profit institution, or a private-sector company that is providing the information? That will give you insight on what they are trying to accomplish. Regarding this website, it was established as the result of a class taught at Brigham Young University and the need to share this information with spouses and other students who were unable to take this class.

Second, what are the motivations of the establishing institution? Why are they preparing this information? If it is with a private company, are they trying to sell you a product and if so, what is that product? Generally, we try to stay away from sources with an ulterior motive, even though much of the information may be good. Regarding this website, we were encouraged by various faculty and staff to make this information available via the internet in an effort to help others both inside and outside Brigham Young University understand personal finance from “another” perspective, an eternal perspective. We have nothing to sell, we don’t recommend any products (except perhaps personal finance software such as Quicken or Mint.com to help you be more efficient in your finances), and don’t receive any remuneration for this website (in fact, the maintenance comes out of our personal school budget).

Third, how do they deliver the personal finance information to the students? In this website, we utilize faith-based methods that we believe help increase motivation and change behavior as part of our "best practices." We also strongly use and support the "Best Practices for Financial Literacy and Education at Institutions of Higher Education," from the U.S. Financial Literacy and Education Committee, 2019.

Sources that we have found helpful in learning about personal finance include:

U.S. Financial Literacy and Education
http://www.mymoney.gov

Federal Depositors Insurance Corporation (FDIC)
http://www.fdic.gov/consumers/consumer/moneysmart/index.html

Federal Reserve Board

MSN Money Central
http://moneycentral.msn.com/family/home.asp

The Jump$tart Coalition for Personal Financial Literacy
http://www.jumpstart.org

Consumer Reports
www.consumerreports.org/cro/personal-finance/index.htm

The challenge with many websites is that while they have good information, they may be missing important aspects to help teach and motivate students. Our additional vision and goals include to build faith, motivate change, become more financially self-reliant, strengthen the family (Proclamation on the Family, 1995) and serve and bless others.
