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???

Sector Reviews: Make In India

From Last couple of months one word is in news, MAKE IN INDIA. Correct Hmmmm…..I’d like to write somewhat on Make In India today. You’d listen a lot of information in the media about it. Don’t worry it is the mindset of Investors all over the world, to follow the media blindly. Hey I’m not against the media or social media.


But reality is that it’s also focused by mutual fund companies and launched new fund (NFO) recently. The intention of sharing this article is only only only for information purpose.


There is two major key area of this campaign One government is focusing on – infrastructure, railways, defense and smart cities- all provides incredible scope for the manufacturing space.

Two besides government spending in these areas, some of the key reforms – be it labour law or land acquisition, GST implementation, farm sector reforms, market linked pricing for petro products or opening up of FDI in key areas – all translate in to ease of doing business and attract higher investment activity in the manufacturing sectors.

The above two are directed towards ultimately government’s vision of 100 million jobs in the manufacturing space and ramping up the share of manufacturing in GDP to 25% by 2022 and so the campaign of Make In India! (source: fundsindia.com)
Focused Sectors : 
# Automobile, Automobile Components 
# Aviation, Biotechnology, Construction, Chemicals, Defense 
# Electrical Machinery, Electronic System, Food Processing, IT & BPM, 
# Leather, Media and Entertainment, Mining, Oil and Gas, Pharmaceutical, Ports, 
# Railways, Renewable Energy, Space, Roads and Highways, Textile and Garments, 
# Thermal Power, Tourism and Hospitality, Wellness.


Well I like one analysis by Birla Sun Life mutual fund ‘The stocks of manufacturing companies have given 20% CAGR return in last 10 year without any government primary involvement.’ So you can predict the future of this sector with government full involvement.

The Government of India initiative ‘Make In India’ is also followed by Indian companies and foreign investors. You can check the official Facebook page (3370274 likes) and Twitter page (297164 followers) of Make In India. You must like it and follow this pages for regular updates. You can also download more information on make in india here (brochure attached)


Finally my hope towards ‘Make In India’ is on it’s pinnacle level.

Water is the most precious gift of nature. It is the source of all life on earth. We can save it during our everyday use while drinking, cooking, washing, bathing etc. Try to stop misuse of water. Simple idea I want to share before monsoon if you setup a rain barrel to collect the water that runs off at your roof and use it to wash the car. You can take some little effort and can  save one life. 

2.    Save Energy 

It is almost impossible to live life without electricity. There are many ways where we can start to save electricity from right now.
ü  Turn off lights & all electronics (like Television, Computer, Air-condition) when you leave a room.
ü  Set your AC’s temperature a few degrees lower. For each one degree change, you can save up to 5 percent on your power bills.
ü  Use energy efficient appliances like CFL and LED light.
In winter we can use solar water heater instead of electric geezer.

3.    Burn Fat Save Fuel


Start to minimize the use of vehicle because fuel crisis will be the most hazardous question against world. Think everyday how much fuel we are wasting without any proper planning.
ü  Try to off your car at slow traffic or at traffic signals.
ü  Minimize the use of breaks.
ü  Use the public transport as much as you can.

Encourage your child, friends and family to use bicycle or sometimes waking where the distance is waking away. It will be surely helpful to burn fat and make you and your family a healthy life.

Equity markets all time high – What NEXT ???

Now days will be back very soon people asking Market Kya Lagta Hai ??? This is common and tedious question which I would not like to comment more. But equity is all about investing and not for selling high and buying low, because give time to market rather than timing the market. It is more important how much time you have given to market. See if you invest in any business you check your business value every day like stock price you check everyday. Change your relationship with equity before you start investment in stock market, because your relationship can change your view of equity.

Remember this great quote by great investor Only buy something that you’d be perfectly happy to hold if market shut down for 10 years” – Warren Buffett.

Here I also would like to share two interesting links which are on Equity Markets and great insights for investor who are investing directly in market. Please check it!

Happy equity investing and great investment life ahead…. share your comments on above links.
