Better Half

Recently i received a beautiful message on mobile, some times we got such awesome message from awesome people. I don’t remember who have sent but I would like share it with you….

However, our wives or should I say ‘better halves’ forgive us all the time for  transgressions committed by us. 

So here goes my piece…

One day out of the blue, it struck me while speaking about SIP, that SIP itself  is very similar to our wife. 

Let’s look at some similarities : 

1) An SIP is meant to be for the long term. Our relationship with our better halves is also perpetual. 

2) An SIP provides incredible support when markets are down because the equal investment buys more units. Similarly our wives are always with us when we are down, whatever may be the cause. 

3) Again when markets are on a high and as we feel very exuberant, our SIP quietly goes about doing its work. Similarly during our moments of glory, our wives allow us to enjoy our moment in the sun undisturbed as they quietly go about doing their work. 

4) SIP is always about regularity. It is always there with us month after month, year after year. Similarly our better half too is with us at every step of our life. 

5) Finally SIP, little by little, creates the greatest wealth for us over our life time. Likewise, towards the end of our life’s journey, the greatest wealth that we can talk about is our wife. 

Hence she is known as our better half. 

Hence saying that ‘SIP’ is best for us is no exaggeration.

Mutual Funds Sahi Hai !!!

Stock market is a dangerous, risky place to invest but rewards are sometimes equally great.
 
Have a look at some companies where investors have lost a lot of money.

10,000 invested in Lanco Infratech in 2006 is today Rs.91

10,000 invested in Kingfisher airlines in 2007 is today Rs.0
 
The list is very long…
 
There are numerous examples that have destroyed investors wealth even after staying invested for many years.
 
So don’t get Carried away by a few success stories of Wealth Creation. It is not suitable for novice and amateur investors.
It’s better to leave the job to the experts and experienced money managers.
 
That’s why it is proclaimed 
Mutual Funds Sahi Hai

An Interesting Data !!!

An interesting perspective, I received this on my WhatsApp last week….
 
US By 1999, 49% of Americans Owned Equities, this Percentage was just 3% in 1980. These  20 years was also the Time when Warren buffet, Paul Tudor Jones, George Soros were Created.
 
In 2017 only 3% Indian owns Equities..
 
 
In 1979, the BSE Index was 100
 
Today it is over 33,000
 
That is a return of over 17% per annum.
 
If we were to add back dividends received and assume that they were to be reinvested in the BSE-30 Index, then the return is nearly 20% per annum
 
Over the past 37 years, the Indian economy has grown by a real rate of GDP of 6.3% on average, 
 
Inflation, as measured by the CPI, has been in the 8% range
 
Add the two together and you get 6.3% + 8% = 14.3%
 
Let’s round that down to 14%
 
This is the approximate rate of growth of activity in the overall economy, taking into account the level of prices of various goods and services at that point in time. This is also called the nominal rate of growth in GDP.
 
So, the economy grew by 14% per annum for the past 37 years and the BSE-30 Index grew by 20% per annum. 
 
Now if, over the next 33 years, the Indian economy is to grow by, say, 6% per annum and inflation is to be, say, 5% per annum then the nominal rate of GDP for the next 33 years will be = 6% + 5% = 11%.
 
 If a 14% nominal rate of growth in the economy between 1980 and now resulted in a 20% average per annum growth in the Index over the past 37 years, then what should a 11% per annum growth in nominal GDP result in over the next 33 years – till the year 2050?
 
Sensex 4,076,470 doesn’t seem extraordinary now, does it?

Patience is key to success

In the 60’s in USA  scientists have performed a test. The test is famously known as “MARSHMALLOW RESEARCH”

What is this Marshmallow Research ??? let’s check out….

Marshmallow is an eatable food item. Today we all know marshmallow as a android version.

The scientists form a group of students aged 4 to 5 and told them that they can eat the marshmallow immediately or after twenty minutes. 

The student who will eat this marshmallow after twenty minutes will get another food item.

Many of the students ate  immediately. But some of them have patients the ate after twenty minutes.

After 20 /25 years the scientists found that those who ate the Marshmallow immediately  are living a very simple and common life.

But those who waited for twenty minutes or beyond, are doing well in their respective jobs and career.  They are at top position in their careers.

So what is the outcome..?? The outcome is that  to be successful in life you need to have some patience.

The same thing applies in your investments too. 

We as a Mutual Fund advisor always insist  to wait,  hold on and keep patience. 

It is already proven by the scientists that patience  is an important aspect to be  successful in investments or in also a human life.

So if you have patience you will be always in profits in mutual fund investment. Weather it’s  SIP or LUMP SUM INVESTMENTS.

Message from a Financial Planner

I am going through an experience where one of my far relative passed away couple of months back. The spouse and daughter is totally unaware of the financial assets of this person. I got into the act of helping them gather info for the last 10 days. The turmoil and tension they went through cannot be explained. More than 6 to 7 members are helping them to get this information.
 
The reason for all this is that, we do not educate our family in various financial matters. Writing a will- Is such an important part of your financial life. You spend a good 75 % of your life trying to gain in asset creation and it’s appreciation.
 
No thoughts on what it will happen to it, while you are gone.
 
Please keep all financial and estate papers in one place, let your spouse know about it, keep registered emails and passwords in place, lockers keys etc….
 
Let’s not the courts in India decide the fate of your life’s assets.
 
I heard another story where an employee in software, senior position, at 40 years, passed away. His wife is going to court for settlement for the last one and a half years. Is this a punishment for the surviving spouse???

Difference between Stock SIP VS Mutual Fund SIP

Client : Hi Mr. Advisor, I want to know the difference between Stock SIP vs Mutual Fund SIP. 
Which one is better & why ? Can u explain both the concepts ?
 
Advisor : Yes sir surely. Why not
 
Well,  Stock SIP is averaging and mutual fund SIP is rupee cost averaging.
 
Albert Einstein very well said…
“Compound interest is the eighth wonder of the world”
 
we said…
“SIP is ninth wonder of the world”
 
Client : Oho… How !!! 
 
Advisor : Let assume, you want to buy 10  Kg. Apple every month…. 
Price of apple in January  – 20 per kg. Your expense is Rs.200, right?
Price of apple in February- 40 per kg. Your expense is Rs.400
The average per kg cost is 20 + 40 = 60 / 2 = 30 per kg.
 
This is average and your stock SIP is working on same principle.
 
Client : Then what is rupee cost averaging?
 
Advisor : Suppose your budget is to spend Rs. 200 per month on Apple. No matter what is the price.
 
Price of apple in Jan – 20 per kg, so you can buy 10 kg. (200/20)
 
Price of apple in Feb – 40 per kg. So you have 5 kg. (200/40)
 
Now tell me the average of per/kg apple. 
 
Client : Same 30 per kg
 
Advisor : No…
 
Number of kg you bought = 10 + 5 = 15 Kg
Total cost = 200 + 200 = 400 Rs.
Average cost = 400 /15 = 26.66
 
Now in the above example  as stock SIP, you bought of  apple is averaged at Rs. 30 per kg.  & as Mutual Fund SIP, your buying cost is averaged at Rs. 26. 66 per Kg. for the same apples.
 
This is Rupee cost averaging. Mutual fund SIP is working on this principle.
 
Client : Oh great!! So every time our cost per unit is less than its avg.  Now I fully understood rupee cost averaging. It’s awesome…

Money Lesson to Children from Dad

Recently I read awesome letter in social media from a dad to his 6 year old son when he asked for Money. I like to share it with you.

From where to Start ???

From the couple of months I was worrying to change the look of my blog. I was planning to give awesome experience to all visitors of my blog. Thanks to my new vendor for his wonderful job but my job of writing awesome articles has been stopped for couple of month between this shifting. Well today I’m feeling relaxed and want to start my job again with one short article which will guide you and give you some awesome experience.

From where to start ???

The answer of this small question might be challenging for new investors with worrying and thinking for their future, same problem I’m facing today to write this article. Ha ha ha ha…..

There’s no secret formula for where to start your investment journey but some basic steps will help you to start and will guide you to create wealth in future.

Bill Gates once said, “Television is not real life. In real life, people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.” The majority of people fail to achieve their financial goals because they waste their time and energy chasing rainbows, seeking shortcuts, and hoping for good fortune. Wealth builders take action to change their future by expanding their capabilities, gaining new experience, and pursuing new challenges.

How you can do this ?

Knowledge and Discipline Investing requires a series of reading in an ever-changing world of investment and finance. Each choice has an element of risk that all or a portion of the investment will be lost, will return less than expected, or will return less than other investments that might have otherwise been chosen. Learning when to hold ’em or fold ’em is the skill every successful investor must learn, sometimes at significant cost. For discipline you have better option of SIP, just follow it. You don’t have to do anything for become disciplined investor.

Keep It Simple – Keep your financial life simple, don’t make it complex because simplicity will make your life awesome. I always call SIP (Simple Investment Plan) because it is much simple than any financial products. So one can start his financial journey with getting good knowledge and keeping it simple. If you think there’s much knowledge is available on internet, I’ll say only getting good knowledge won’t make you smart investor. So conclusion is ACTION, start taking action is necessary in your life.
