Personal financial planning

  1. 1. Sagayaraj Personal Financial Planning
  2. 2. Why invest?  Most of us in private job with no job security  Inflation rate doesn’t match the increment rate  To have regular income after retirement  Taking care of children’s needs  Investments must, hence, be foremost in the order of priority barring any financial emergency
  3. 3. Understanding cash flow  Preparing a Cash Flow statement of income and expenses  Helps to focus or curtail unwanted expenses  “The secret to getting rich is to pay yourself first (i.e., invest for your future), before you pay others (utilities, shops, etc)” – Kiyosaki (author of Rich Dad Poor Dad)
  4. 4. Example of a cash flow statement Total (savings) +Rs 10,000.00
  5. 5. Where to Invest?  Different avenues of investment  Stocks, mutual funds, government bonds, post office schemes, bank fixed deposits, commodities, gold, real estate, art, etc.
  6. 6. Inflation  Inflation is the rate at which the cost of goods and services rises  As inflation goes up, purchasing power decreases  Three years ago, you could have bought a three bedroom apartment in a premium suburb of Mumbai for Rs 75 lakh; today, the same amount will probably get you a one bedroom apartment in the same locality  Inflation reduces the value of money
  7. 7. Impact of Inflation on financial goals  Over the years, you have to spend more in order to maintain your standard of living  A management course that costs Rs 15 lakh today will cost around Rs 41 lakh (at 7 per cent inflation), 15 years hence when your child is ready for it!
  8. 8. Real return  To fight inflation, invest in a product which gives not just a higher rate of interest than inflation, but also leaves with a substantial amount that enables to meet the goals  Real return = stated return – Inflation  Investing in an investment product provides 10% return then actual return is 3% (10 – 7)  If we consider 30% tax on return then the return is almost nil  Consider investing in equities, real estate and commodities which are insulated from inflation
  9. 9. Accelerate earnings: The concept of reinvestment  Are you investing the interest earned?  The simple act of reinvesting the interest earned means you earn interest on the interest and make more money  Suppose you invested a sum of Rs 2 lakh in the Post Office Monthly Income Scheme (MIS) @ 8 per cent per annum. Every month, a sum of Rs 1,333 will be deposited into your savings account, for a period of 6 years. “Where should i invest such a small amount?”, you may ask. Well, the Department of Posts has a Recurring Deposit (RD) scheme, where you can invest as little as Rs 10 each month @ 8 per cent per annum. Your MIS interest over 5 years would be Rs 80,000. Reinvesting would, hence, earn you an additional interest of 8 per cent on the Rs 80,000, without much effort.
  10. 10. Accelerate earnings: The concept of reinvestment  The following table demonstrates the value of Rs 10,000 invested at 7 per cent over a period of 35 years, assuming that the interest is reinvested.
  11. 11. Compounding  “Compounding the greatest mathematical discovery ever” – Albert Einstein  Reinvest your income from interest on investments, your capital or principal that is invested goes up  Another factor that influences compounding is the frequency of compounding  Compounding is such a powerful financial tool that if you invest and reinvest your savings and profits regularly, your investment portfolio will steadily outgrow your salary!
  12. 12. Financial Planning  Financial planning is the process of developing a personal roadmap for your financial well being  The output of the financial planning process is a personal financial plan that tells you how to use your money to achieve your goals, keeping in mind inflation, real returns, and taxes  Process of systematically planning your finances towards achieving your short-term and long-term life goals
  13. 13. Benefits  Helps monitor cash flows and reduces unnecessary expenditure  Enables maintenance of an optimum balance between income and expenses  Helps boost savings and create wealth  Helps reduce tax liability  Maximizes returns from investments  Creates wealth and ensures better wealth management to achieve life goals  Financially secures retirement life  Reviews insurance needs and therefore also ensures that dependents are financially secure in the unfortunate event of death or disability  Lastly, it also ensures that a will is made

  15. 15. Tips for Financial Planning  Start now. Even if you are in your mid thirties or forties, it’s better to start now than dawdle for another five years. Every day counts  Be honest with yourself. Seek help when needed.  Set sensible, measurable goals for yourself. Be realistic in your expectations of the results of financial planning  Review your plan and financial situation periodically and adjust as needed  Always review the performance of your investments; pull out if needed and reinvest the money elsewhere.  Be hands-on. It’s your money and no one else will do your work for you
