Hi Sanjeev, 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: It is really great to see that you have started to plan for your post-retirement life and you have accumulated ample amount till now.
If you continue in the same way with a monthly SIP of Rs. 80,000, I am convinced that you will have enough corpus to support yourself throughout retirement.
Accumulated corpus in 8 years with monthly investment of 80,000 and present value 1.09 Crore will likely be 4.12 Crores. Rate of return considered for the calculation is 12% CAGR.
Assuming that you want to maintain your current monthly expense of â‚¹1 lakh in retirement, it is important to factor in inflation, which will erode the value of your money over time.
Since you have other avenues as well to support your expenses, this will help to create a heftier corpus.
• Invest in a mix of equity and debt mutual funds to diversify your portfolio and reduce risk.
• Rebalance your portfolio regularly to maintain your appropriate asset allocation as per your requirement.
• Consult with a financial advisor to develop a comprehensive retirement plan.
