They live in their ancestral house in Mumbai’s suburb with Soham (7) and Malav’s mother Sneha Joshi (69).
A comprehensive financial plan securing all goals — child’s education, daughter’s marriage, retirement, international vacation, investment and insurance planning.

Emergency fund: The Joshi’s have R4.90 lakh in savings account and FD’s which is a substantial amount of liquidity.
Health Insurance: Aditi’s employment benefit provides R5 lakh cover for her and Soham, Malav’s employer benefit includes R5 lakh cover for him and his mother. For his mother a premium of R1,000 per annum is deducted by his employer from his salary. The health insurance is slightly on the lower side. With health expenses going up, the existing amount looks insufficient, especially for Malav’s mother.
insurance: They have taken a very good decision to go in for bigger amounts of insurance through term plans. Though there are endowment policies which are low on returns, they have no major negative impact on any goals or the cash flow. Malav has a cover of R1.18 crore while Aditi is covered for R35 lakh.
Investments: The Joshi’s have invested wisely in a variety of asset classes. They have been regular investors in equity which is showing in the sizeable corpus they have built over their earning years.
Retirement: They have a two-pronged approach towards saving for retirement. Equity will form the base and real estate will support the goal. This is a very good approach and has served them well.Their EPF also has significant balances which can play a major role in their retirement planning.
Liabilities: They have recently brought a flat in Baroda. Their home loan outstanding is R25 lakh and they are paying an EMI of R25,000 per month. The loan will get over in 2031.
