This is my strategy
A) Invest Rs 2mn Government TBills rate 6% p.a
B) Invest Rs 5mn in a 1 year fixed deposit in licenced commercial bank. NDB or Commercial Bank. Rate 9% p.a
C) Invest Rs 2mn in registered finance company. Rate 13% p.a
D) Invest Rs 1 mn in the stock market.
E) I will ask my bank to grant me a permanent overdraft facility for Rs 4mn by retaining my deposit of Rs 5mn as a security. Interest rate of the loan is usually 2% more than the fixed deposit rate ie. 11%
F) With this arrangement I will have Rs 5mn to be invested in the stock market.
G) I will pick two type of stocks, trading stock and medium term stocks. It will be based on 80:20 basis with more exposure to good stocks. If necessary I will go for a 50% margin trading facility and increase my portfolio unto Rs 10mn.
H) I will ask my finance company to grant me a leasing facility and retain my 2mn deposit as a security. I will go and buy a car that is petrol, fuel efficient and which has a second hand value. This will be for my personal use. I would even consider hiring whenever someone offers me a good rate.
I) I will go to a government bank and get a property loans. Interest rate are very low therefore I will take a 10 year loan. Anything more than 10 year is not financially attractive. Loan would be for Rs 10mn. They would finance only 80% and woul ask me to secure the balance 20%. I will offer my treasury bills as a security. Now I have a Rs 10mn
J) I will go and buy a house in Colombo suburbs a two story small house for Rs 10mn. You could have a look at the Hit Ad property section, plenty available.
K) I will get occupy the 1st floor of the house and rent the ground floor of the house. I would rent this to foreigners who are coming for holidays. Since there is a acute shortage of Colombo hotel rooms, I would be able to fletch a good rate and repay part of my housing loan from the money I am receiving from the rent. I will target to rent the ground floor for Rs 50,000 per month. This will give me Rs 600,000 per annum and it will be equal to almost 8% return on my investment. Cost of my loan is only 10% p.a therefore my incremental cost would be very little.
L) Now I am settled in life... I've got a car, I've got a house, I've got investments.. Now I need to find a Rich Boy friend!!!!
Summary - Assets & liabilities
Car - Rs 2mn
House - Rs 10mn
Stock portfolio - Rs 10mn
Treasury Bills - 2mn
Fixed Deposits - 5mn
Deposits with Finance Company - 2mn
Total liabilities -19mn
This is my personal strategy. This is only a hypothetical scenario.
