Hi Vivek, I am 43 years old. I have a monthly sip of 35k going on. I have started investing in mutual fund and sip from year 2013. Total mutual fund plus sip current market value is 1 core 9 lakhs . I plan to invest 35 k per month more for 7 to 8 years , when i want to leave job and do something else. Can you tell me what will be my corpus in 7 to 8 years down the line taking both current valution plus what i am going to continue investing?Also, i have another 1 corore total in other investment like Voluntary provident fund, Epf, ppf and esops from my company and pension fund . Here i do a monthly investment of around 80 k via mostly through company for tax savings. So what will be my total corpus after 7 to 8 yrs. Also, is it good for retirement considering my current monthly expense us 1 lakh.
Ans: You are on the right track Subho. Longevity has increased. Post-retirement risk free interest rate has come down. Inflation has gone up.
So when planning for retirement corpus, back-of-the-envelope calculations won't work. You need to project your financial life from now to retirement and retirement to life expectancy. If it is not possible for you to do that, then approach a financial planner who will be able to create a financial roadmap.
