What is Life Goal Planning?
Life Goal Planning is a process that can help you reach your goals by evaluating your whole financial situation, then outlining strategies that are customized to your individual needs and available resources. One of the main benefits of having a Life goal plan is that it can help you balance conflicting financial priorities. A Life Goal Plan will clearly show you how your financial goals are related; for example, how saving for your children's college education might impact your ability to save for retirement. Then you will use the information you've gathered to decide how to prioritize your goals, implement specific strategies, and choose suitable products or services. Best of all, you'll have the peace of mind that comes from knowing that your financial life is on track.

Investing with protection
'Risk' doesn't have to be as daunting as it sounds - it's not simply about potential capital losses. Riskier investments can offer the potential for a greater potential return, although this does not always follow. Conversely, the higher the risk, the greater the danger of suffering substantial losses.
The key to managing risk versus return is to have a balanced portfolio - one that is exposed to a variety of asset classes, some risky and some less so.
Our Life Goal Planning can help you decide how much risk you are prepared to take with your money; taking into account the amount of loss you're able to tolerate practically, emotionally and financially, and make recommendations that you feel comfortable with in terms of investing for the future.

If you have no pension plans in place, it's a good idea to start now. We can guide you through the options available. And once you've got started, we can help make sure your retirement preparation continues to head in the right direction. True financial freedom is something that can be achieved only by careful planning. Not every one wins a huge lottery or receives big inheritance. Increasing cost of health services and detrimental effect of inflation will make your carefully built retirement corpus seem insufficient to sail through the retirement period without hitting air pockets.
Today's workplaces are virtual pressure cookers. How long would you sustain the pressure without your health being affected? What if you are forced to seek early retirement, say in you forties instead of fifties. You will have longer retirement period than working period! Will you be ready then?
You need to take care of your and your dependents needs all by yourself. What if you are disabled and have to depend on others? Lack of adequate infrastructure for long-term care puts additional burden. We are fast loosing the safety net provided by joint family as more and more families are going nuclear. Children migrate to greener pastures and you are left to fend for yourself. Women outlive men and if not provided adequately may have to compromise the standard of living. Increased life expectancy puts it's own burden on retirement planning.
When you must start retirement plan? It's quite common for a young earner to exclaim "What retirement? It's still far away. Let me enjoy now". Period between now and the faraway event is the right period to build the retirement corpus and the right time to start is now. Not starting early makes the goal more difficult to achieve. The surest path to follow is to start saving early, do so regularly, and invest the savings wisely. This allows assets to grow with time into the nest egg you will need to fund the lifestyle you desire.

Workshops and Seminars
Many company employees, and particularly company executives, face a capital accumulation crisis. Company jobs often are demanding and leave little time for recreation and family and still less time for personal financial pursuits. While seemingly generous, company salaries often are taxed higher than comparable incomes of self-employed individuals and business owners. This is because self-employed professionals and business owners usually have more deductions they can reasonably take before paying income tax. Furthermore, the Provident Fund is not likely to be a significant capital accumulation vehicle for highly paid employees. As a result, higher-paid employees tend to rely too heavily for capital accumulation on various plans to acquire their own company's stock if such option is available. This violates a cardinal rule of investing -- achieve adequate diversification. To complicate matters further, an unsuccessful accumulator of capital will be a victim of inflationary trends; that is, it will cost more and more to support a given lifestyle. We conduct seminars and workshops to corporate employees on topics like Life Goal planning, tax planning, savings and investment, stock purchase plans, stock options and other Life Goal planning products and services. This can be customized to meet particular requirements of each corporate entity.
