    Hi Malay,

    You have started to think about financial planning at 24, that’s great, you will surely gonna create wealth in longer run.
    Firstly know about asset allocation and decide what should be your asset allocation in below link:

    And then build your investment portfolio according to your comfort, this is the time to be aggressive and take higher risk. Equities should form major part of your investments , better to start with mutual funds. Keep some portion in fixed Income products and debt funds as well. Open a PPF account soon. Just keep 3-5 months expense in a saving account as emergency fund. You can invest in Gold (5-10%) – obviously in Gold ETF or Gold funds rather than physical gold
    This is also the perfect time to get the term insurance or other health covers, as the premium will be much lower at this stage.

    Thanks
    Sumit

    Dear Ashal,

    I went through that link and I saw whole conversation about Insurance but couldn’t get anything about early age financial planning. It would be great if you provide exact link or guide me through it.

    Thank you.
