Executive Summary We have planned a financial planning for newlywed couple, Mr and Mrs George Tan with little knowledge of investment and low risk profile. They are early thirty with $6,000.00 combine of income monthly. We have prepared a comparison table and chart on stock, ordinary annuity and annuity due in term of return and risk profile for investment time frame of 20 years. Besides, investment company background also been analysed by us due to market stability and durability issue. According to their risk profile, we encourage them to invest in annuity due of $300.00 quarterly payment at 8% interest compounding quarterly. Total investment amount of $24,000.00 and return of $35,294.23 in 20 years time. Buying a house definitely is better option than renting for this couple because their financial status is allowed them to own a house with comfortable instalment payment monthly. We have compared between five banks in term of loan tenure, interest rate, monthly instalment and total interest incurred. CIMB Bank with loan tenure of 10 years, annual interest rate of 5%, monthly instalment of $1,273.20 and total interest of $32,784.00 is the best option in term of total interest payable. Although the monthly instalment payment is the highest among the others, but it is worth because of lowest annual interest rate and loan tenure. By selecting CIMB bank, they will work faster towards financial freedom.
