Consider your personal cash flows. How would you adjust cash outflows (i.e. adjust your budget) if your household income was cut in half? If your cash inflows increased, how would you reallocate your surplus to meet your personal needs and objectives? How do you use credit as a part of your personal financial plan?

Many different types of financial institutions exist. Differentiate between deposit institutions and non-deposit institutions. Provide two examples of deposit and non-deposit financial institutions with a brief explanation of each. How can you use each of these financial institutions to manage your cash flows and develop or enhance your personal financial plan?

FIN 420 Week 4 Learning Team Assignment Market Analysis Proposal

Visit a site such as www.bankrate.com to determine current rates for both a 60-month and a 36-month loan on a new car where the buyer must finance $20,000. Using the loan calculator, what is the difference in monthly payments between the 60-month loan and the 36-month loan? Review the amortization tables. What is the difference in total interest one would pay over the life of these two loans? What do these differences show you about the true cost of the car?

Outlined in Ch. 10 are four methods for estimating life insurance needs. Which insurance options are most appropriate for your family situation? Based on what you have identified as most appropriate for you, do you currently have enough life insurance? If not, how can you close this gap?
