## What Is Financial Goal Planning?

Financial Goal Planning is the practice of defining a financial goal and developing a series of actions to achieve it. You will have to estimate how much money you need, what resources you will implement, and within what period you want to reach your financial goal.

## How Does A Calculator For Financial Planning Work?

The Future Value (FV) will be the accumulated corpus as a financial goal. The formula to calculate the financial plan is

FV = PV (1+R)^N

Where,

FV represents Future Value

PV represents Present Value

R represents Expected Inflation Rate

N represents the Duration of the investment

Here is an example.

The value of the financial goal in today’s time is Rs. 15 lakh.

You need the amount after 10 years. Let’s take an expected rate of inflation of 5%.

PV = Rs. 15,00,000 , R = 5% ,  N = 12 years

FV= 15,00,000 (1+0.05)^12 =  Rs 26,93,784

Now, you may want to calculate how much money you should invest every month for the accumulated corpus. The Expected Rate of Return on investment is at 6% every year.

The Future Value is 0 based on the calculation of Rs 26,93,784 done earlier.

Let the Expected Return from Investment= 6%

You will need to invest Rs. 12,818 every month.

The PMT Function is helpful for this calculation. You will get it in the Excel Calculator.
