Old Age Savings - Nippon India Mutual Fund

An average person works for about 30 years and retires at around 60 years of age. Given the advancement in medicine and healthcare, we should plan for another 30 years post-retirement. In the modern nuclear family system, the elderly mostly live alone, paying their bills and managing their households by themselves.

If you retired with
Rs.1 crore today...

30 years later it would be as
if you had approx Rs.13 lakhs

*Assuming inflation at 7% p.a. Rs. 1 crore discounted at
7% for 30 years, would amount to Rs.13,13,671.

The Biggest Challenge after Retirement - Nippon India Mutual Fund

Retirement planning involves
two distinct phases.


The accumulation phase is the building of assets, by saving and investing in the earning years.


The distribution phase is the use of assets, by ensuring that retirement is comfortably funded as long as one lives.

Retirement Assets - Nippon India Mutual Fund


Monthly expense of say, Rs.1 lakh at retirement will
balloon year after year.

For eg: Let’s asume that the age of Retirement is 60 years

Inflation Rate 2 - Nippon India Mutual Fund

This is only for illustration purposes to purely explain the concept of impact of inflation.

The distribution phase begins when we retire. We now depend on the retirement assets to generate adequate income. The focus now shifts from growing the value of the corpus, to the regular income it should generate.

Distribution Phase for Retirement Planning - Nippon India Mutual Fund

Shift in preference..

Start Early - Nippon India Mutual Fund

In the distribution phase, you are drawing down some of
your assets, to fund your expenses. You may need
income assets to generate this regular income. You
should allow the rest of the assets to grow in value, even
if modestly, by holding a small portion in growth assets.

Building a Mutual Fund Portfolio - Nippon India Mutual Fund

During accumulation you primarily need growth, but you also want some downside risk protection. A predominantly growth oriented portfolio shall endeavour to serve this need.

During distribution, you primarily require sufficient income to meet your expenses. A predominantly debt oriented portfolio shall endeavour to serve this need.

Review Your MF Portfolio - Nippon India Mutual Fund

Use the Peak Income
to Save More

It is ideal if we began early... But in reality, we will find ourselves being able to save more, as we age. In our peak earning phase, many of us may be able to even save 50% of the income. Small amounts saved in early years, topped up by large amounts saved in later years, will help accumulating a large corpus.


Accumulating adequate retirement assets is a challenge. We can only save a portion of our income, even with the best effort. But to retire comfortably, we need those assets to generate an income that completely funds all expenses, after inflation.

Thinking about retirement as the time to live frugally is so
old-fashioned. The new-age retirees look forward to a
second inning. An inning filled with travel and discovery;
pursuit of new interests; and a life of joy and dignity.

Retirement Planning Strategies - Nippon India Mutual Fund Affordability of Retirement Planning - Nippon India Mutual Fund


Monthly Instalment Rs. 10,000 The returns earned on the retirement corpus is assumed
to be systematically withdrawn as annuity. Hence the
principal of the retirement corpus will remain intact and
the annuity will be perpetual in nature.

*The illustration above is based on assumptions and is solely for the purpose of understanding how the age of retirement planning affects the retirement corpus.Investors are requested to consult their financial, tax and other advisors before taking any investment decision(s)

A person who starts a monthly SIP of Rs. 10,000 at age of 20 has 40 years of accumulation till retirement at 60. This gives him 40*12 =480 installments. Each installment is compounded at a monthly rate of (9/12) = 0.75% for the months till retirement. The total investmentamount is Rs. 48,00,000 and corpus accumulated will be Rs, 4,68,13,203. This amount when invested at 8% gives Rs. 3,12,088 permonth during retirement.
