Our Financial and Retirement Planning approach is based on Modern Portfolio Theory (MPT) and places your asset allocation strategy at the core of the plan.
The seminal portfolio theory proposed by Harry Markowitz, a renowned American economist, remains even today a core model for defining asset allocation strategies and managing a portfolio.
We start with our long-term market expectations that comprise the current macro-economic scenario, asset volatility and other statistics. This forms the basis for selecting efficient allocations. To recast the performance of these efficient allocations in the future, we use simulation techniques and recommend a unique path for every investment that you make towards a goal.
Traditionally methods in financial planning are based on deterministic models. These models though simpler to implement, do not always consider short-term risks. Our approach adopts a more contemporary and probabilistic approach which blends in the MPT to give an asset allocation strategy.
In many ways retirement planning is a cash flow jigsaw puzzle. There are your investments on one side and regular cash requirement on the other. So the investments have to be placed in a way that you have enough or more cash when you need at the same time the investments grow to take care of the impact of inflation in the future. Your yearly investments for every goal can take a different path depending on the type of the goal and the horizon. For every goal, we choose the best path from over 2.5 million simulations for each of your annual investments for these goals.
Once we collect the information on your goals, current financial assets, income and other details, we work on a customized retirement plan for you. Our recommended financial action plan gives you a savings rate to adhere to, an optimal asset allocation to do an immediate re-balancing, and a target asset allocation for future investments. Your allocations can also be tracked online so that you can invest based on an action plan, which is based on your goals and a scientific approach.
