On how much one should invest in such portfolio Kartik Jhaveri, Manager — Wealth Management at Transcent Consultancy said, "I have always said that irrespective of your income, you should try to invest at least 20 per cent of your income i.e. take-home money that you earn. If someone goes a few steps further and saves around 2 per cent extra per month, then such an emergency can be easily countered." However, he said that such investment has to be in such a fund where one can fish out one's money at his or her own will. He said such investment should not be taken as an investment and returns should not be the criteria for such portfolio allocation. Asked about the schemes where one can invest he said that Gold ETF, Bank FD or RD, post office investments can be a good option for such investment.

It might sound a little-to-much-planning-to-do on your end, but trust me it will get you well ahead in life."
Rahul Jain listed out the following major areas where proper planning will help you move towards financial freedom means no derailment from becoming rich. He said that emergency bills like car repair, house repair, an unplanned trip or medical emergency are such expenses that derail your financial freedom. so, one needs to allocate some money for such unplanned expenditures that can be withdrawn at any time. Like Jhaveri, he also suggested an individual that this won't be an investment and hence its returns should not be the criteria for investment.
