The 100 Minus Age Rule

Back to all Infographics

The ‘100 minus age’ rule, is a classic guideline on how to allocate money across equity and fixed income.

Investors must simply subtract their age from 100 to arrive at an approximate equity allocation, with fixed income accounting for the rest. This ensures investors have higher equities at a younger age and vice versa.

Young investors have age on their hands and are better placed to build wealth via equities, which is a long-term proposition as they have a higher risk appetite. As they get older, they get more risk averse and prefer stable and regular income.

100 – Your Age = Equity Allocation

  • 30’s : 70% Equity (Equity MF’s, Alt Investments, Stocks.) 30% Debt (Debt MF’s, FD, Bonds etc)
  • 50’s: 50% Equity (Equity MFs, Alt Investments, Stocks.) 50% Debt (Debt MF’s, FD, Bonds etc)
  • 70’s: 30% Equity (Equity MFs, Alt Investments, Stocks.) 70% (Debt MF’s, FD, Bonds etc)
