Wealth Management | Retirement Planning

Retirement Planning

It refers to the allocation of finances for retirement. The goal of retirement planning is to have a financial independence, so that employment after retirement is optional rather than a necessity. The aim of retirement planning is,

  • Assess readiness-to-retire given a desired retirement age and lifestyle, i.e. whether one has enough money to retire; and
  • Identify actions to improve readiness-to-retire.
  • Acquire financial planning knowledge
  • Encourage saving practices


It can be started at any age. The earlier start an individual has in planning his/her retirement planning, the better chances there are of an efficient retirement back-up. Planning for retirement helps an individual in the following ways.

  • It is the tax favored way of setting aside money during the working years for retirement.
  • It reduces taxable income in the years that the individual has contributed.
  • It provides an estimate of the income during the retirement years.
