Importance of Goal Planning
We all love vacations! But going to a place we don’t know much about without any plans could be tricky. The vacation is the goal here, and planning can help us effectively fulfil it. Investing in mutual funds is somewhat similar. If you don’t have a plan, you may not know how much and where to invest. That’s why goal planning is essential. It is the process of identifying and drawing up a strategy to achieve your financial goals.
The following reasons will help you understand the importance of planning to fulfil your goals.
Importance of Goal Planning
If you invest by following a financial plan, it can give you a sense of purpose in your long-term financial journey. A solid financial plan links goals to investments. You may have emotional attachments to your goals like owning a home, sending your kids to a top college, and having a tension-free retired life. It can strengthen your financial commitment.
have peace of mind
Isn’t this something we all crave? With enough money, you can pay for your monthly expenses, save for future goals, and treat yourself and your family to the small joys of life. Financial planning helps you manage your money wisely. Don’t worry if you’re not there yet. Peace of mind is not far away if you are on the path to financial planning.
be ready for emergencies
A financial plan also takes care of emergencies. Although the amount of money you need to set aside may depend on your job and liabilities, it is advisable to invest money equal to at least six months of your expenses in a mutual fund. The emergency fund might help you cover expenses during a job loss or any other unexpected scenario.
reduce dependence on debt
Debt can drain your savings and jeopardise your long-term financial goals. If you invest wisely, you can fund big-ticket purchases like buying a car or a home with your investments and minimise your debt.
become a disciplined investor
One of the easiest ways to make sure that you reach your goals is to become a disciplined investor. It means sticking to your SIP regardless of market conditions, maintaining your asset allocation, and regularly rebalancing.
