The length of time a model or investor or plan projects into the future.

Planning Horizon

The future time for which a person or organization plans. For example, if a company wishes to make contingency plans for the next 10 years, it is said to have a 10-year planning horizon. Many companies maintain a five-year planning horizon, though some plan for longer or shorter periods. The longer a planning horizon is, the more uncertainty it has.
