For a successful retirement plan & emergencies fund, there can be multiple options. But in my opinion following can be important steps in planning for retirement & keeping funds for emergencies:- Set your retirement goal: Estimate fund requirement for financially independent retired lifestyle, considering your present cost of living & effects of inflation. Start early: The sooner you begin the investment process, the better. The power of compounding always plays an important role in building the corpus. Systematic investing: Systematic investment adds discipline to investment & also provides advantage of the rupee cost averaging. Diversify: Choose the right mix of assets (equity, debt, gold, and others) in your investment portfolio so that the risk-reward ratio can be optimised. Establish a contingency fund: Emergencies can arise at any time and requires immediate need of money. To be ready for emergencies one should maintain three months of household expenses as emergency fund in liquid assets as they are easily available. Review and rebalance: Review investments periodically to make sure that these are on track.
