Who Requires Financial Investment Planning?Investment | May 10, 2010 at 11:24 pm
In my several years of consulting experience, I have learned many people have misconceptions about investments. Some believe investment is only for the rich. Some think they don’t need to invest, they have enough. Here is a list of people who need financial investment planning. If you don’t fit into any category, you may not really want it.
An individual just out of college, regardless of the inheritance money he has, needs financial investment planning. He doesn’t know what his future would be like. And he has a long life to live which includes his marriage, family, retirement, and so on. If he wouldn’t start investing today, he wouldn’t have enough.
A couple, expecting a child soon, would want to have a secured investment for the future of their children. Moreover, they would need money to enjoy their life after they quit their jobs, later during the old age. If they start planning about their investments today, they would have a happy, sufficient life.
An individual with a secured job, high or low salary, would have his set of financial problems, if proper planning is not done. He would have to pay high taxes, if financial investment planning is not done. Even if he decides to invest, it cannot be possible without proper knowledge of investment and appropriate plan.
Nothing bothers old people more than retirement and illness. Ignore investment planning means ignoring medicines and treatment even if they are ill. They don’t know how many years they would live after retirement. If they don’t have a proper retirement fund, they would certainly not have happy golden years.
An individual with his own business needs financial investment planning more than anyone else due to the level of risk involved in it. If he has a proper investment fund, he would have to worry about future uncertainties.
A dependent too would require some security. How long would he or she would be dependent on others?
We can see that almost every person living in this world requires financial investment planning. And investment is definitely not only for rich. In fact, the ones who require this kind of planning are the ones strive and work hard to meet their ends. It’s not too late yet. Select any of the category above, and start planning today.
