Portfolio Mix

This calculator is based on Sound Mind Investing author Austin Pryor's "Just-the-Basics" investment strategy. Upon selecting your life-phase and investing temperament, this calculator will not only tell you the exact portfolio mix you should strive for, but it will even calculate the specific dollar amounts based on the amount of money you have available for investing.


Enter the amount of money you have available for investing, select your life phase and then your investing temperament. Upon changing any of the three variables the calculator will automatically recalculate.


Other than decimal points, do not enter any other non-numeric characters (commas, dollar signs, percent signs, etc.) in the entry boxes. Doing so will cause a JavaScript error.
