Investment interest

Scenario: A client comes to you for investment advice on his $500,000 winnings from the lottery. He has been offered the following options by three different financial institutions and requests assistance to help understand which option would be the best for his investment.

Option 1: 6% compounded interest quarterly for 5 years.
Option 2: 8% compounded interest annually for 5 years.
Option 3: 14.5% simple interest for 10 years.

  1. None of these is realistic today. Bank interest rates rarely go much over 1% a year.

    Higher interest rates are risky and the investments may actually lose money.
