ADVANTAGES OF FINANCIAL PLANNING
One of the thumb rules of investments and financial planning is
Start Early. Drive Slowly. Reach Safely.
At the early stage of our earning life, we have few responsibilities; it is the time when we can save the most. Also, being young our risk tolerance is high, as we have time by our side. Gradually as our responsibilities increase, our spending and our cost of living increases as well.
The earlier you start planning your expenses and investments, the easier it is to reach your financial goals. For instance, let’s consider retirement planning. If you plan your retirement at the age of 60, you want a corpus of Rs.1 crore at age 60as per your current cost of living. You have 30 years for retirement. For which, you need to invest about Rs.7, 500/- per month at an assumed growth rate of 8%.
