Quick vs. Detailed Plan

10:57 AM


In the Quick plan:

1) is the Retirement Income Target gross or net?

2) I don't see where I can input existing locked-in money. Can I?

In the Detailed plan:

1) in the Forecast/Economic Outlook/Advanced/Annual Investment Management Fees, how can I bypass the fees?  Do I need to put them all to 0? It's because the planning I do is based on returns net of fees.

2) in the Pensions/DC/Group RRSP the Asset Allocation defaults to 100% cash, but If I choose a Profile in the Options tab will it over-ride this default?

3) in the Risk Analysis/Estate Objective, there is an amount of $50,000 as a default.  Is this automatically included in the calculations, so do I need to change it to $0, or under what circumstances is it included in the calculations?



1. It is Gross.

2. You can only do this on the Detailed user interface.


1. Yes, put them at 0%, otherwise they will reduce the gross returns.

2. Yes, the profile option applies to all types of funds.

3. It applies the risk scenarios and looks if there will be $50,000 or more for the estate. The ratio of successful scenarios over all scenarios is the success rate for the estate objectives. If you put $0, then all will be successful.
