For many of us, a long weekend or holiday means embarking on a getaway or a vacation with loved ones. While a moment like this is precious for bringing family together, it is always exhausting when it comes to costs. developing a plan well in advance for your budget, ticket bookings, reservations or finding deals for better rates or discounts could save you from stressful nights and make your vacations less intimidating and more interesting. But, first you need to ask yourself some questions: Why do you want to travel? Is it to get a break from the mundane? To indulge in adventure sports like river rafting or trekking? A family get-together? once you’ve decided, then you’ll know how much the holiday is going to cost-and how you are going to finance it, e.g., through savings or alternative financial products.
Today, you have mutual fund to put aside money for your holiday money. Much like ordinary saving accounts, mutual fund products are very affordable and can be withdrawn at just about any time. Funds with high potential returns are typically accompanied by equally high potential risks. selecting a fund that fits in with your investment horizon and objectives is the most crucial investment process.
Agus B. yanuar, the President director and Chief Investment officer of PT samuel Aset Manajemen (Samuel Asset Management), says that many families consider mutual funds for their alternative financial products when planning a holiday. Agus said one of his investors specifically aimed his investments at covering a mountain climbing holiday that he wanted to do in the next three years.
