What is Financial Planning?

 

To begin with, you must understand what financial planning is. Financial planning refers to planning your expenses, saving, and investing in the right places for a secure future. It would help if you considered your income, analysed your expenditure, and saved for the future.

 

All this is done by keeping in mind your future requirements and preparing for any unforeseen circumstances. A good retirement plan will stop you from fulfilling your needs and wants in the present.

Be it health requirements or any other unavoidable expenses, you should be ready. The future is unpredictable, but you can at least be prepared for anything that might come your way.

 

  • Define a purpose

    If you have a purpose in life, the path towards reaching that goal becomes easy. Having a proper financial plan can help you stay focused and be ambitious in your career. This is a very prominent advantage of financial planning. If you are sure about your financial goals, it will show you the path towards a secure future.

 

  • Stay away from stress and anxiety about future finances

You can be at peace if you have your financial goals set. You do not need to worry about any uncertainties that may arise in the future.

Here are the disadvantages of financial planning:

 

  • Time-consuming process

    The limitation of financial planning is that it needs your time. You will not be able to see immediate results. The process of understanding your income, expenses, and savings is crucial. Be aware of your finances and future aspirations to set realistic financial goals. The whole process of developing a retirement plan is time-consuming. Predictions and actuality might not be in line

    You will determine your financial goal based on some predictions and forecasts now. These forecasts and predictions might not hold in the future. They are subject to various conditions you might or might not consider. Thus, your financial plan might go for a toss if the predictions do not align with reality. To be cautious, you might have enough room for alterations in your financial plan. Have an open mind.

 

  • You must keep track of it constantly

    It is not enough to make a financial plan. You must keep track of the conditions around you and alter your plans if needed. Having a rigid financial plan might not be the idea. Market conditions need to be considered for your retirement plan to work out. Even when the conditions are favourable, track your progress. See how close you are to your financial goals. Plan your moves to achieve the goals in time and optimise your efforts.
