What should you do as an investor, who follows experts, very confusing? - and Solution inside

If you are an avid reader and track #financialexperts (India and worldwide), you must be getting mixed signals -

_ #nasdaq should do better and value seems emerging

_ #India is the place to invest and emerging leader for decade

_ #emergingmarkets should do better

_ #fixedincome assets are place to invest in 2023 for safety and growth

_ #financialservices or #bfsi should do better on basis of credit growth

_ #gold and #china looks better from 1 to 3 year perspective

_in last 10 years #valueinvesting has outperformed

_ #recession is sure to hit and H1 of 2023 is going to experience it and from H2 of 2023 it may reverse. No economy and market can say we will not be impacted, but #India and #china should stand out.

_China should be badly hit economy, for larger part of 2023 and political unrest may carry it to next year as well

_there's a tactical #geopolitical shift, which has longterm positive impact on #eurasia

Very much mixed signals.
I am even saying what if inflation is here to stay for full 2023?

The only #solution is find your #suitability and start or continue investing accordingly.

Financial Literacy for kids ? happy children's day

Financial Literacy Amongst Kids ?

What and where to start with?

Well, just 'teach your kids to value money' - Radhika Gupta and I totally concur and say the same to my known circle.

how to teach the value of money?

Well, Garbha gyaan theory if you read, until age 8 of babies whatever they see, hear, learn and experience become part of their personality and decision making for life. (that's where money attitude is formed)

So dear parents, watch out for the environment, for your own actions and the way you act and deal with money.

This is where financial literacy starts and most parents don't even realize.

Following such financial or investment headlines is dangerous - unfollow finfinfluencer tip

Do not get swayed away by such headlines and returns numbers.

It's no point.
If I start writing such things, I can write daily one fund which has given amazing returns (above normal).

In fact for me as investor, such article writers are to be easily unfollowed. (makes no sense to follow and remain confused- remember, our actions in today's world is directly related to whom we follow)

Why not to get swayed ? (or what to note in this headlines)

A- It's an SIP and not lumsum (the avg.holding period of SIP in the 12th month, is less than a year)

B- It's just 1 year return, of SIP. Even if the markets have done excellent in last one month or good in last few months, the return numbers are going to look exorbitantly above normal (infact thats the current situation)

C- It's equity fund (so volatility of Market and fund will change returns every day)

Hope this helps in unfloowing or choose the right ones to follow.

Bonus tip- any article provider or influencer who always keeps writing only on Top / Best returns, is for surely to be considered to unfollow.

Home buying decision - A solution - real bad situation

One of my prospect family is badly stuck and I knew I could have avoided this situation for them.

The house that they booked is now at the very final stage and in about a month should be ready for possession, so he has to pay the final sum.

Their current house is not yet sold, which was assumed to be sold and paid to the builder of the new house. (so big sum gap and also capital gain now to be paid- so double whammy)

He got the loan, but less than required, so that is also depressing from them.

They paid few sum to builder, by taking internal hand loans which they have flexibility, not paying any interest, but have to pay in 1 to 2 yrs , which means next 2 years surplus going into paying that hand loans.(looking at surplus, may be more time is required to pay the loan)

Even if they took possession, they wont have any money to do any interior work, so home won't be stay ready.

I feel very bad - here's why.

February, 2017 this family was refered to me by one of my clients and I understood and informed them about our 'home buying- solution', which empowers to take decision on why, what, when, how to take home buying decision and then breaking it down to simple steos before even starting to look out for home.

For most, it's the preparation done before looking out for home is crucial rather than, the 'actual buying' stage.

After prospecting we had informed them about our services, and they thought we are yet not taking decision, so they said we will come back.

Yes they came back yesterday, we did prospecting meet again yesterday and the situation is really stressful and depressing for the couple.

Good time to onboard and engage is the day you thought of buying home, even someday, as it's a preparatory journey which is important, and not only while you have freezed the home.

Life of a financial planning professional 😂

Today, just 5 mts before the meeting i.e.10:55, I messaged client that I am behind schedule and will join @11:10.

The truth behind the scene -

_I finished a meeting just @10-45 am , _went for the loo to freshen up myself, _had a glass of water,
_checked mail and whats app messages for important messages that may need immediate response (nothing was there that important)
_messaged the client that I am behind schedule and that I will join @11:10 am (10 mts late)
_opened the sheet and plan that I am going to show and refer while meeting this client online and recouping the agenda of meeting
_closed eyes and had deep breath for 5 minutes to recollect new meetings reference to context and thoughts and put aside previous meetings thoughts
_admited the client in to join meeting
_again deep breath and some fast breath as well
-joined the meeting @11:05.
