Study the long-term financial planning model below.
Think very carefully how should we plan for our long-term needs for income, risk management (insurance coverage), and growth solutions during our different stages of working life and after our retirement.
Good model. This is definitely worth your time and effort to study it very carefully!
For Risk Management and Growth solution, once we made some very serious mistakes and locked in negative return; it is very difficult to recover without pumping even in more money.
