The Investment Planning Process
Investment planning is a series of steps designed to take the dreams we all think about and turn them into specific action plans for achievement. The process involves:
- Defining specific goals and monitoring progress.
- Incorporating your objectives and current situation to develop a strategy that helps you reach your goals.
- Using tax-advantaged investments like the TSP, IRA, Annuities, and 529 College Savings Plan to minimize taxes and maximize growth.
- Building a diversified mix of assets to maximize your long-term return, consistent with your goals and risk tolerance.
- Selecting leading investments in each asset category, whether in mutual funds or individual securities.
