An optimal investment plan must include everything from amount of money to be invested, type of assets (mutual funds, equities, ULIP and bonds etc) in which to invest, risk, time horizon, expected returns and expected losses before you will sell the assets and the periodic review. This may look like very conservative approach of investing but when you start investing with this way you will find the benefits of the approach as this will ensure that you are not losing your money or capital.

Writing a proper investment plan is as important as investing and choosing right asset classes.
