This helps the client inculcate financial discipline which will go a long way in successful implementation of the plan.
Investment Planning: Investment planning focuses on identifying effective investment strategies according to an investor’s risk appetite and financial goals. Investment planning begins after you have taken into account your current and expected income level and have laid down your financial goals. The goals can be capital growth or income growth. Every investment option represents a unique risk-return trade-off. Investment planning takes into account an investor’s risk appetite, which depends on his current income level, savings, lifestyle and responsibilities.
Retirement Planning: Retirement planning refers to the allocation of finances for retirement. The goal of retirement planning is to achieve financial independence (steady portfolio income), so that the need to be gainfully employed is at the option of the individual rather than out of necessity. The process of retirement planning aims to assess readiness-to-retire given a desired retirement age and lifestyle, i.e. do you have sufficient money to retire; and to identify actions to improve the readiness-to-retire.
Risk Management and Insurance Planning: Risk Management and Insurance Planning refer to managing cash flow risks through sound risk management and insurance techniques. Insurance is taken to protect the ones dependent on you in case of any adverse event. How much insurance an individual requires is a function of the individuals’ outstanding liabilities, lifestyle, number of dependents and the net worth of the individual. Under insurance is a huge risk and negates the impact of insurance already taken. Unfortunately, in India insurance is predominantly used as a tool to save taxes rather than to manage risks.
Tax Planning: Tax Planning is the planning for the reduction of tax liabilities within the frame of tax laws. This is one aspect where an individual can see immediate savings in the tax outflow. And most often than not, January is the month when people get into action and choose instruments without properly evaluating them. Having a Financial Plan will enable one to achieve the dual object of efficient investments plus tax saving.
Estate Planning: In simple terms it is planning for the creation, accumulation, conservation and distribution of assets.
