What is the rule of thumb?

The general rule is a heuristic reference that can provide simplified suggestions or a set of basic rules for a specific topic or course of action. It is a general principle that provides practical guidance for performing or solving a specific task.

 However, the rule of thumb can be used as a guide.

First let’s look the 7 thumb rules to understand how fast is Your Money Growing?

Rule of thumb #1:                                  
Rule 72 is a quick and useful formula, usually used to estimate the number of years required to double the amount of money invested for a given annual return.

Using this rule, if you divide 72 by the expected return, you can very accurately estimate the number of years it will take for your funds to double.

This means that your 100,000 rupees will be converted to 200,000 rupees in 12 years.

Rule of thumb #2:      
Rule 114 is a quick and useful formula that is often used to estimate the number of years required to triple the amount invested in a given annual return.

Use this to estimate how long it will take for your money to triple. It works on the same principle, usually 72.
Divide 114 by the interest rate to find the number of years that 10,000 will become 30,000.

If you invest 100,000 rupees in a product with an interest rate of 6%, then according to rule 114, it will be 300,000 rupees after 19 years.

Rule of thumb #3:
Rule 144 is a Quick and useful formula that is often used to estimate the number of years required quadrupling the amount of investment for a given annual return.

If you want to use the same logic as rules 72 and 114 to determine how many years it takes to quadruple your investment, you can use rule 144. Using this rule, if you divide 144 by the expected rate of return, you will accurately estimate how many years it will take for your funds to quadruple.

For example, if you invest 100,000 rupees in a product with an interest rate of 6%, it will become 4 million rupees in 24 years under rule 144.
Calculated at a 12% interest rate, 10,000 becomes 40,000 after 12 years.

Rule of Thumb #4:
this is a good rule of thumb to determine the value of your current wealth in 10-20 years. Even if you don't spend (or invest) a dime, its value will be much lower than the money you want to spend. The reason today is inflation.

This is a useful rule of thumb for predicting your future purchasing power. This is especially useful if you plan to retire because it affects how you set up monthly payments. However, keep in mind that the inflation rate will change from time to time.

An inflation rate of 7% will halve the value of your funds in 10 years. (70/7 = 10 years)

Rule of Thumb #5: The 100 Negative Age Rule

This rule of thumb assumes that a person’s capital allocation after retirement should be reduced. This rule is used for asset allocation. Subtract your age from 100 to determine how much of your portfolio should be broken down into stocks

If you are 35 years old and want to invest 10,000 rupees, according to the 100 minus rule, your capital allocation is 100-35 = 65%. Stocks and debts of Rs 3,500.

Rule of Thumb #6: The emergency fund rule
As the name suggests, funds used for emergencies are called emergency funds. From a few months to a year as a reserve fund. When calculating your expenses, consider grocery expenses, utility bills, rent, EMI, etc. As a return on a savings Account.

Although mutual funds do not have guaranteed returns, the rule predicts a return of 10% for long-term equity investments, 5% for debt securities, and an average return of 3%, usually from savings. Bank Accounts.

Rule of Thumb #7: The Net worth rule 

there is also a simple mathematical formula to see if you can call him rich.

To do this, multiply your age by your total income and divide by 10. If your net worth is equal to or greater than other people, you can be considered rich.

In India, experts say that the divisor should be 20 instead of 10. So, for example, if you are 30 years old and have a total income of 1.2 million, then your net worth must be at least 1.8 million to be considered Rich....
