When it comes to our dreams and long-term goals very few of us are able to achieve them by 30s. It’s a good time when you should start worrying about your financial goals and dreams in life.
At this age, you should think about how you want your future to look like and come up with a precise savings goal. Prioritise your goals and list the primary ones that can be achieved within a relatively shorter time. For example, purchasing a home can be achieved comparatively faster than saving for retirement.
Turn your thoughts into action by choosing the correct investment tools. Set aside a particular amount every month and make sure to make payments to these accounts as per their payment schedule. Stick to your financial resolution and remain dedicated to get the best results.
Life doesn’t always go as planned. You may face several emergencies in life like losing a job, a medical emergency or dealing with unplanned expenses. If you have not yet started saving for emergencies then start it right away.

Diversifying your investments is the best way to maintain a healthy investment portfolio. People often end up saving all their money in a single type of investment. For example, saving all your money in a savings account or FDs will lower your returns from investments. Explore the other investment options and diversify your income into a stream of income-generating investment options like equities, , mutual funds, real estate and PPF etc.
Always remember to invest a portion of your savings in risk-free assets along with risky ones. This will allow you to balance the risk and the returns on your investment. You can enjoy diversified returns and save your investments from market risks or low returns.
While planning for the long-term you must consider every aspect of life and not get carried away by your emotion. Most people tend to delay saving for their retirement while fulfilling their family duties thus resulting in low retirement corpus. Though it is important to fund your child’s education and fulfil his/her requirements it is equally important to save for your retirement. Investing in retirement will help you lead a secure and financially independent retirement. You can take care of your medical expenses and you do not have to rely on others to look after you if you retire with a good retirement fund. The 30s is the best time to start a retirement planning account as you can create a good corpus and remain invested for long.
