Apr 25, 2018

You are going to spend every Indian summer in Europe post-retirement.

How does it sound?

You will really have to be a monk or an insipid person to call it a bad deal.

Do you want to know the secret of rich and peaceful retirement?

Frankly, there’s no secret.

Successful retirement planning is a science.

✔ Start early

✔ Estimate your post-retirement inflation-adjusted cash-flow requirements

✔ Consider your life-expectancy

✔ Take into account your risk appetite too

✔ Invest regularly and intelligently

✔ Review your portfolio periodically

And…you are done!

But, it’s easier said than done.

Curbing the temptation of retail therapy is difficult, which makes it nearly impossible for many of us to invest regularly. If you overcome this hurdle, investing intelligently is another task where people often fail.

Being influenced by the emotional appeal that insurance companies create to market their pension and retirement plans, you are likely to end up with a bad deal.

Similarly, if you rely only on fixed income instruments such as Public Provident Fund (PPF) and other Small Savings Schemes (SSS), you may fall short of retirement savings, as these funds don’t generate high inflation-adjusted returns.

In other words, unless you invest in risky assets such as Equities and may be even Real Estate prudently, you are unlikely to beat the inflation bug and create an adequate pool of assets for your retired life.

This is not to say, fixed-income instruments don’t have any role in your retirement plan.

In fact, you should create a personalised asset allocation and invest accordingly for all your financial goals, including retirement.

Buying real estate isn’t an easy choice as it requires a big-ticket investment. Nevertheless, you can invest as low as Rs 1,000 per month in mutual funds through Systematic Investment Plan (SIP) route to take exposure to equity; but you must begin early!

When you invest in equity through mutual funds, you enjoy a whole host of benefits such as diversification, economies of scale, and  professional management to name a few.

Investing in mutual funds through SIPs can make your dream of living a blissful retired life come true.

But, here, the key is the selection of mutual funds schemes.

How do you select a mutual fund scheme?

While you can pick them yourself, given the time constraints and lack of interest and (possibly) expertise, it’s wise to rely on professional advice.
