Assorted infographics on personal finance

 

I am a fan of Carl Richard’s (Behaviour Gap) napkin drawings (who is not?!).  From time to time, I have thought of similar sketches but never got around to actually drawing them on my own napkin – Excel.  Here are few.

The whole point of such a sketch is that it should be self-explanatory. So I am not going to add much commentary. Do let me know what you think.

  1. Returns vs risk is linear only up to a certain risk. Post that risk limit, returns saturate. This was observed in some post here a long time back. Nevertheless, it’s an excellent first degree model.
