Follow this step-by-step process to retire early than 99% people | Financial Planning

hi everyone so here is my holding on four big stocks that I own in my portfolio and if you aggregate the numbers you will see that my investment amount is huge on the flip side this is the car that I drive it's a tat Nixon so I naturally get asked a question that aat you have a lot of money a lot of wealth this that so why are you driving a basic car the short answer is that it is a part of my retirement planning living frugally spending less being sensible about it being practical about it is the core tenant on which I operate basically my my viewpoint is that I would rather have a lot of flexibility in my life not stress about money live wherever I want to live for example right now I'm in South Goa I keep on traveling here and there peaceful environment weather right and all that stuff so I prefer this flexibility so this is a practical Insight that I have discovered right from the time I had a corporate job K sensibly I have to save and invest and I have to keep my lifestyle inflation in check in order to achieve early Financial Independence SL retirement so on this video video I'm going to share with you practical insights practical strategies that I have personally used in order to achieve early Financial Independence after watching this entire video you will get a very clear idea what is it that you should be doing what is it that you should not be doing because most of the people that I see who are interested in getting early Financial Independence SL retirement they just keep on doing Excel all day right we will become like retired in like this amount of time no all this will not help you study the math also so first and foremost please like this video so that these type of fundamentally research video reach out to more people I speak from life and practical experiences whatever I have personally done second key point is please watch this video till the very end it's a very humble request I will condense a lot of interesting insights for you in a very short span of time watch it till the very end you will not need to watch any other retirement oriented video all practical points will be spoken about so on that note let me me share a very broad framework and the rule is called as 991 Rule now what is the meaning of the rule so here is the snippet take a look at this this rule is applicable across a wide range of Industries let's pick the example of Internet what you will observe is the fact that 90% of people waste their time on internet scrolling we scroll all day we'll just watch like shorts after shorts after shorts learn nothing do nothing so 90% people on the internet waste time 9% % of the people use internet intelligently probably to gain knowledge learn something new upskill themselves do good good things probably watch my channel subscribe to my channel and like this video and 1% who are at the top of the internet food chain they are the one using internet to make a lot of money and turn it into a profession so this split of 99 and one is applicable across a bunch of Industries and it is also applicable in terms of Investments Exel EX all day long that you know what okay if I save this much amount of money grow it at like this much rate then I will be retired in like these many years that's incorrect that will not work you have to have basic principles sorted out you need to have basic practical wisdom on this topic in order to understand this concept more let me give you some math here for example let's say that it is the year 2023 you have saved roughly 1 rupe right now and you'll say right and now I can retire just live off by growing my money at like crazy rate and I'm done but see the point is that if you study inflation and the way the inflation is being played out practically in the economy the cost of raising a kid has gone up like crazy on top of that foreign education has become extremely expensive the inflation there is crazy so from that perspective you know what the rate of inflation in the economy is 5 6 7% but practically the type of services that you might be availing the inflation there is absolutely mindboggling for example consider health insurance the premiums on health insurance term insurance is growing at roughly 14% kager 14% kager every single year so it is critical to Avail these type of services as soon as you can so on that note let me introduce you the sponsors of today's video which is Max life insurance imagine that you're 35 years old and you won a lottery of 10 CR rupees you'll feel yeah oh 10 CR rupees I'm just going to rule the world with it I'm going to resign from my job live a retired life this that all good good things but here is a problem and let me use the math of 1 CR rup and the value of it after a few years so 1 rupe after 10 years only remains 50 lakhs if you assume a 7% inflation similarly after 15 years the value will be only 36 lakhs after 20 years it will only remain 25 lakhs of buying power at current inflation of roughly 7% so the point I'm trying to drive home through this example is very simple that retirement planning is not that easyl models and we follow so many things systematic withdrawal plan this is that but it is not easy those are not practical practical things so retirement planning is an area where I have had some bit of practical experience because I currently live in Goa I could technically call myself retired I'll not use the word retired because that has a negative connotation to it but I would call myself financially independent that I get to work wherever I want whenever I want how much ever I want so from that perspective I can call myself semi-retired so to say on that note the very first thing that you absolutely need to do literally the ABC of retirement planning is that you need to protect yourself and Safeguard your family and for that you need to have an insurance and on that note let me introduce you to the partners of today's video which is Max life insurance they offer the plans at very affordable premiums by paying 700 rupees monthly you can get a life cover of 1 CR rupe now this comprehensive plan comes with a host of advantages SL riders for example you can get disability cover you can get protection against 64 critical illnesses you ALS also get accidental cover life cover on top of that one of the key components that you need to remember while buying an insurance is the claim settlement ratio which simply means that if an insurance organization is getting 100 requests for processing claims how many claims are they actually processing out of it Max life has a claim settlement ratio of 99.51% which is good Max life also offers free cost of term plans with special exit value which means that with Max life term insurance plans you can get back your premium at no extra cost so do check out all the details in the description and comment box and let's move on to point number two so with that said let us move on to the concept of retirement planning practical points the first critical point that you must understand about retirement planning is the retirement planning math Excel spreadsheet I will tell you in very simple back of the envelope calculation of critical points that you need to understand in order to grasp the concept of retirement okay so the retirement math formula comprises of these four buckets I will quickly explain it highly practical points right so the first point is that you must understand what your current lifestyle is and what is the inflation on that lifestyle so let me give you an example so let's say that currently you live in Delhi and your monthly expense is one lakh rup home you have a family and right now one simple choice that you can make is and if your work permits that you're working from home online then probably you can go to some other smaller City so that maybe you will be able to cut down your expenses by 30 40% and studies show us that you can cut your expenses so these are some of the Practical tips that you must keep in mind so the first practical tip in terms of your retirement planning that I will give you is that if you're planning on retiring early then always look for scope to shifting to smaller cities because this 30 40 dip in expenses will be there right so this is part one part two is that see your life will always be upgraded right that we want like better phones better Hospital facilities better education kids then more expenses on kids so lifestyle inflation will always be there so the first challenge that you will witness is that you need a very honest assessment that okay I'm living in Delhi and 1 lakh rupee is my ker what is the realistic expectation in inflation I expect in my lifestyle where I will be happy for example okay that okay if I have like a wife and if I have two kids or if I have a husband two kids then then my will get doubled right so this is the base amount that you need to consider and here there will be an approximation only right you cannot again like sit on Excel spreadsheet that okay today the education expenses like this after one year it will only grow by 10% and my rent will only grow by 10% right so this is the Practical point that I I'm telling you and one mitigation strategy is that always figure out early in your life and get that that location Independence Point very very critical it can help you out a lot in terms of your retirement planning then comes the second point that it is pretty much irrelevant what your current salary is for example your current salary could be 1 CR rupe a month but if you invest 0% of it or if you save 0% of it then how much you have contributed to your early retirement or retirement planning the short answer is zero it is almost relevant how much money you are making more important factor is that how much you save and invest so this is the second critical point the third critical point is the rate of growth of Investments now this is a very interesting snippet it shows that bab India May that only 3 three and a half% people invest their money in mutual funds most of the savings of Indians savings means that okay if your salary is 1 lak rupe and you're saving 10,000 rupe then most almost 90% of Indians keep that in fixed deposit now this is not a rant against fixed deposit fixed deposits are good instruments under certain circumstances No Doubt about that but your growth money the money that you're looking to grow at a rate of 10% plus that needs to be put in something called as growth assets and FD is not a growth asset something like mutual fund is a growth asset something like real estate good real estate is a growth asset something like a stock or a good stock is a good growth asset now why am I calling this 10% as the Baseline there has to be some head or leg to this 10% right so what you need to understand is that even if you consider the official rate of inflation in India it is somewhere around 6% and please note that this is just official number this is unofficial inflation will be much higher but official because that is a number that we can all be sure of that inflation in India which simply means that in 2023 you are getting an Apple at 100 rupees then next year most likely the cost of that apple is going to be 106 rupees why because the price rise of apple has happened by 6% so that is what inflation means so inflation in India is roughly 6% and 4% you need as a systematic withdrawal limit or systematic withdrawal plan so how does this work out let me quickly explain that right so let's imagine that this is the year 2023 you have saved 1 CR rupe okay and then you say that you know what my current lifestyle is such that I live in a tier 2 tier three City Village and inflation be if I compute on my standard of living that I will get married have kids all this stuff hypothetically then my Kaa every year or my expense every year I'm talking on yearly basis is roughly 4 lakh rupees okay now as per systematic withdrawal plan what you can do is that in 2023 you can theoretically retire why and there is a condition that needs to be met here that your total Corpus is 1C right your current lifestyle plus inflation is how much 4 lakh rupees roughly four lakh is what mywp a systematic withdrawal plan would be so in 2023 you retire you stop working in 2024 how much money you need 4 lakh rupe because that is the estimate that you have run now what is your Corpus down to you will say that okay it is down to 96 lakhs because 1 CR minus 96 lakhs but here is where Point number three comes into the equation that this Corpus if you have invested it properly it will grow at a certain rate and what is the growth rate of that Corpus you need to achieve it should minimum be 10% why is that because that in 2023 1 CR by 2024 how much does this become it becomes 1.1 CR then you withdraw 4 lakh out of it then you left with how much you left with roughly 1.06 CR now where does this 6 lakh go it goes to inflation that ch% inflation 4% is your systematic withdrawal rule so what are the key takeaways that you must understand practically from this discussion number one have a very correct understanding of what your current lifestyle is where will you live and what is the expected amount of expenses you will incur on early basis have a very very clear handle on that fact so in my case that Kaa comes out to be 2 lakh rupees there is a video that I had done somewhere so please go and take a look that is the max limit that so 2 lakh is what I'm estimating then comes the second key takeaway that you must save and invest quickly in order to get to your goal which is based on that 4% withdrawal rule for example example that okay I need 4 lakh rupees every month as s swp then how much money you need to have as the kitty or the pool 1C okay so that is point number two point number three is that you must be able to grow your portfolio at minimum 10% why because there is inflation angle to it and there is 4% s swp to it okay so now since we have understood the retirement math and the formula around it now let us start getting deeper into the concept about retirement methods and what are the best assets where you could invest in order to achieve that early Financial Independence or retirement so see what people think is if I go and invest my money in mutual funds retir stocks same is the case if I go and buy like five shops then yes again I'll retire very early people retire by buying real estate also people retire by buying stocks also mutual funds also the point is that whatever you are buying that asset should be good there is no point in buying like absolutely nonsense stocks which are going to go to zero how will it help in retirement planning again a related Point here is that if we just simply go and buy dividend stocks then our retirement is pakka see guys what ends up happening is that when you are buying mutual funds or stocks the issue is that markets sometimes go up like this and then they fall like this now if you are banking on the fact that every month or every year I need to withdraw 4% of my portfolio and type situation 2008 type situation Market took four 4 years to recover that every year I need to withdraw 4% of my money market has corrected unfortunately 50 60% and now you're sitting unnecessarily withdraw and all that stuff so it becomes a problem for you so please understand that both mutual funds and stocks have a component called as volatility guaranteed regular return is not the area which is useful in mutual fund and stocks people just imagine pfolio pfolio but draw down is also quite massive so you have to mix and match with other three instruments here right so this is very very important that you use mutual funds and stocks for growing your portfolio at what math at more than 10% why 10% because I told you the math earlier that 4% is your s swp and 6% is what 6% is inflation so yeah say right if your average portfolio which is a combination of this part and this part if that portfolio needs to grow at a weighted average please Google what weighted average means if the weighted average return of your portfolio needs to be somewhere more than 10% then from the growth part well it should at least be 12 to 15% returns here and then also it's fine because what this part this blue part does is that this part of your portfolio gives you stability right and this part of your portfolio gives you what it gives you growth right lot of people in the equity Market Equity best real estate real estate invest no you have to mix and match in order to do retirement planning that is the key concept that you must understand so now let me quickly delve deeper that what are some of the best options within this space if you are planning your retirement if you are picking mutual funds and if you know nothing just simply go and put your money in something called as index mutual funds expense ratio is really low expense because the commissions that you pay to mutual fund people it ends up eating a big part of your portfolio here there is a tweet that I had made on that simple topic that if you're doing retirement planning then 30 30 years 40 40 years retirement planning right every for 30 years they will invest in some mutual fund what ends up happening if there's a difference of 2% commission 1 to 2% commission well here's a math that I explained that if you invest 25,000 rupe monthly at a kager of 12% for a period of 30 years the total portfolio or Corpus size is 8.82 same math at 14% kager it comes out to be 14% but we think what's a big deal no please read this tweet carefully very very important tweet from a retirement planning point of view so if you are picking mutual fund and your aim is to grow your money at 12% that is the historic kager of nifty50 or the entire Indian market simply go and buy Index Fund it has the lowest risk no problem there right so this is point right second key point that if you are going to stocks then you should pick stocks with the intent that how to exit the stock also now this is something that I teach fundamentally on my member Community also so please go and check it out you will learn a lot more Nuance techniques of Investments I keep on saying that if you're a serious investor give it a try try for 2 three months you yourself will see a c change in your investing style but stocks don't purchase unless you know the fundamentals unless you understand the basics of stock stocks are wonderful if you're looking to grow your portfolio between 15 to 20% cash and your timeline accelerates for retirement what about real estate FD bonds okay the real estate for example when you buy a house you are buying it for your own consumption a house is not an investment per se in which you are living for example you're seeing that I'm standing and shooting a video this house is on K I will always live on K house right why because I'm consuming this but the real estate that I own every single real estate is on commercial use or is doing some kind of commercial activ AC it so to say even the Villa that I have purchased in Goa that is on Airbnb generating somewhere around 6 to 8% yield for me every single shop that I own generates 6% yield now why am I talking about 4% 6% Yi simple see real estate it gives you stability for example imagine a situation where the stock market has corrected by 50% you require your 4 lakh of yearly expenses what will you do you will draw down in the stock market if you're 100% stock investor but on the flip side if you own some real estate that real estate gives you cash flows right you might have already bought I don't know right by the time you retire you might have four five shops so every year you might be making 68 lakh rupes of rental income a it gives you an option to put more money in a down market right because you have that stability of cash flow B it fulfills your requirement that from that example point of view now I know that many critics will say that time agree guys I I'm not saying that you know there's a full proof 100% proof method out there which you will use and everything will be Hy Dy but the point is diversification there are some assets like these which are for stability Viewpoint so rather than having all your money or stable money in real estate you can put some money in bonds right don't do fds but do government bonds because the return or rate of return on government bonds is slightly higher that of FD so that is the good part there right so please understand I'm giving you all the options you need to mix and match it eventual goal that you need to accomplish is very simple that your portfolio grows at more than 10% and that can easily happen for you the moment that starts happening you will have a fairly easy time now let me close out the video by talking about four or five actionable points that you need to start executing in the year 2023 to accelerate your retirement planning timelines so there are four action points that I will leave you with number one action point is that if you have just recent recently started making money or if you are already making good money but not saving much start with the target of saving 10% of your salary just 10% and all that please do it do it for your own you will get more freedom you'll have less stress in life okay so step one is that literally start saving 10% of your salary and every 6 months try to jump up your savings rate by another four to 5 percentage points so for example we are in October and you have just started saving money you start out with the goal of 10% budgeting it can happen now by like next March April get that number to 15% what is the goal till what point you should do it well ideally right or like in know extremely good scenario would be that you end up saving 70% of your salary I save almost 95% of whatever money I'm making why because I enjoy the flexibility and lifestyle inflation that does not mean yeah I do not drive a car no I do all those things I drink like good Italian coffee and bu buch of other good good things I do right I travel abroad but budget sensibly that is the point you should spend within your limits for example for Me 2 L monthly expense is a lot I can get a lot done now my income level might be very high so that 2 lakh might look very high but that is not the case I still spend good amount of money but despite that my savings rate is very very high and that is what you should focus on point number two that if you're new to investing don't be that 90% people in that 991 rule start with index investing if you know nothing just simply go and do sip in index you are fine there is no problem there commissions be come all good good things are there you will be able to grow your money at 12 12 and half% kager what is the average return and you will be okay so this is point number two this way you will migrate from that 90% while bucket to that 9% bucket right at least intelligent and then eventually try to get into that top 1% bucket by learning about direct Stock Investing third key point you need to bifurcate your portfolio into growth portfolio and slightly risk-free portfolio so for that if you understand bonds invest in bonds if you understand real estate invest in real estates point is that you must have some stability of cash flow and buy good assets there then comes the final point that have a basic sense of what that goal of money you need to have should it be 1 CR or 5 CR or 10 CR or 100 CR whatever that money is it depends on your lifestyle what you currently have and what you expect your lifestyle to be for example if your goal is I'm working in Mumbai and I'm going to earn money in India and my goal is to eventually retire in New York so for that versus if your goal is that okay I'm working in Mumbai now I want to settle in this particular Village in India right so I hope you got that perspective that this math or setting that goal is something that you'll have to figure out depending on where you currently are external comparison that for example if you're currently on 1 lakh rupe are you happy with your lifestyle that you're currently living are you married unmarried what future responsibilities you might have so as for today do that computation maybe it will be like additional responsibilities double right so 2 lakh is your target goal on a monthly basis this is your expense now run the 4% math that I had explained you and you will have a very simple answer what is the Corpus site that you might so on that note I would encourage you to watch this particular video which is around why the Youth of India is getting financially bankrupt if you watch this video you will avoid making a lot of mistakes in your retirement planning so please go check out this video and I'll see you soon
