Great Companies: Why is investment planning necessary? Sudarsan S K: Investment Planning is essential to ensuring proper growth of a business and also proper management of the surplus funds. Business should plan properly as to the timing of investment in Plant & Machinery and additional staffing as part of expansion. They should have adequate assurance of generating sufficient additional revenue and profits from the investment without which the existing operations will also get weakened. If investing in outside options like shares, Debentures, Bonds etc safety and security of the funds should be ensured and they should be available for withdrawal when we deem it necessary. Investments ensure our surplus funds earn some future revenue, cover up for inflation in economy and that we have adequate funds in case of a future necessity. Individuals also should have investment planning to ensure funds for their future needs like constructing / buying a own house, buying a car, giving best education to children and funds in case of any medical emergencies in family. This can be achieved by saving a suitable amount every month from income and also taking insurances.
