Why is that? If by 1st January I have 50k, by 31 January I should have the monthly interest factored in rather than on the following month. Your table may be applicable with assumption that investor starts his/her asb deposit in mid january. it all depends on what deposit cut off date ASB defined. correct me if i am wrongEddy Khoohttps://www.blogger.com/profile/15225856060806892453noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1494223778561394064.post-84606226960103735402016-03-27T23:41:45.367+08:002016-03-27T23:41:45.367+08:00Using my ASB earnings for 2015 as example, I manag...Using my ASB earnings for 2015 as example, I managed to derived at the actual dividend earned by using the formula given above. However I could not get the bonus amount using the formula you gave. Perhaps you could elaborate further on how to compute the bonus amount? Just curious on one thing, the higher the denominator the lower the amount will be. How do get the 120 months as the max denominator for bonus computation?Anonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1494223778561394064.post-85669612922157264832016-02-09T11:13:22.474+08:002016-02-09T11:13:22.474+08:00What is the eligibility of receiving the bonus?

I found that your sheet has one mistake with regards to calculating the returns using the lowest balance for the month.<br /><br />If an investor invests or adds new investments on the 1st of the month, then the lowest amount for the month (i.e previous month's balance) will not be used. Instead the balance + new investment will be used to calculate the returns.<br /><br />With regards to the Bonus Calculation, there are a few things that doesn't tally with my actual Bonus returns. I'm still trying to figure it out. Will share once I solve it.<br /><br />Iqbal Abd Ghaffarhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/07073084677987830022noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1494223778561394064.post-89369949706374743092015-02-10T07:40:52.993+08:002015-02-10T07:40:52.993+08:00Why don't you go do your maths.
