Importance of Insurance in Financial Planning

Insurance, as a product, is beneficial in safeguarding your finances. Here are some reasons which make insurance a quintessential part of your financial portfolio: 

Financial Planning is a Five-Step Process 

According to the financial planning pyramid, a derivation from Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, the five steps can be categorized as:​

Managing your money: where the focus is on your daily expenses, reducing debt and establishing a stable cash flow

Building a safety net: where the focus is oncreating your emergency corpus, growing savings and opting for adequate insurance coverage- both health and life.

Accumulating wealth: where the focus is ongrowing your investment portfolio, retirement corpus and utilizing tax benefits and exemptions efficiently.

Preserving wealth: where the focus is on enjoying financial independence by converting retirement corpus into income and maximising pension earnings.

Leaving a legacy: where the focus is on estate planning, succession and continuity planning along with philanthropy.

These are the five stages of financial planning wherein insurance comes in the second step, before accumulating wealth.
