The survey question asked to rank them in order of relevant to you. If you think 2 or 3 of them are equally relevant to you, and can't decide, then think a bit deeper and make up your mind.
Here is how I would rank them.
When choosing unit trust fund to invest, which is most relevant (or important) to me:
(1 is the most relevant while 7 is the least relevant)
1. Fund return that can meet my investment goals, not necessary the highest return
2. High fund return (absolute & annualized)
3. Fund sales charge
4. Fund portfolio allocation (e.g. asset allocation, country allocation, etc.)
5. Fund volatility and Sharpe ratio (fund's fluctuation and excess return to risk)
6. Recommendation from friends, forum and online community and resources
7. Recommendation from unit trust agents
This is what you said in your previous post:
"Either you adjust it or you won't have your data."
Bloody arrogant, don't you think?
So some stuff I would like to rank only 1 (few of them) but because of the restriction, I had to rank them at 3-5. Now how honest is such answer? A survey is based on honestly. If one cannot give his or her honest answer, the survey is flawed.
Is not about arrogant. Is about giving an honest answer.
