BQPortfolio speaks to citizens from across India about their financial goals and helps them access expert advice on how to achieve them.

Most working class Indians have a common dream: Retire early, retire rich.

Abhimanyu Aggarwal is no different. The 35-year-old Gurugram resident wishes to retire in 15 years and is planning to build a corpus of Rs 8 crore for his post-retirement life with his current level of savings.

Aggarwal is a salaried individual with a dependent son. He and his wife together make Rs 40 lakh annually and manage to save Rs 12 lakh a year. Aggarwal has already been working towards his goal of building a Rs 8 crore retirement corpus. His existing investments add up to Rs 1.5 crore, which are invested in a near 50:50 split between debt and equity assets.
