We all have dreams and desires, but most of us do not plan our investments according to our goals. The investments are made with a single minded focus on maximizing returns. This often leads to investment mistakes, like trying to time the market. Goal Systematic Investment plan helps the investors to make SIP investments with an objective to meet a pre-assigned Goal like Child education, Marriage, home, retirement etc.
Plan for your Goals
The following are different types of goals. The below list is indicative and depends on life stage and ambitions of each individual.
Buying a car
Starting a business
More than 5 years
For instance, "I wish to accumulate Rs. 25 lakh by 2025 to fund my kid's higher education", is an example of a SMART goal.
Also consider inflation, while computing the future value of your goals. Assuming the current cost of funding your daughter's education is Rs. 5 lakh. After five years, you would require Rs. 6.38 lakh, assuming an inflation rate of 5%.
Hence, you should work with your financial advisor to review your goals, say annually and update for any major life changes.
