We Design Your Financial Destiny

(Precious) Words of Wisdom : "Beware of little expenses. A small leak will sink a great ship." ~ Benjamin Franklin

Financial Planning

A. Why Financial Planning? 
#  Multiplying desires – newer cars, posh houses, electronic gadgets, foreign holidays etc. 
#  Wide array of investment options. 
#  Longer post-retirement life span. 
#  Increasing complexities of the investment products. 
#  Emphasis on market-linked returns. 
#  Low returns from the assured-returns / capital-guaranteed products.

B. Our Approach to Financial Planning
The investment universe is huge with many options -- Shares, Mutual Funds, Insurance, Post Office Schemes, PPF, KVP, Real Estate, Gold, etc. --  each with a specific return-profile, risk-profile and liquidity-profile. Thus, it is important for an advisor to first understand your detailed financial profile; before he can know what options suit you the most. 

Needless to state that there is no single and simple formula applicable to all. 

Therefore, as a starting point, we need to study your 
  *  Personal Profile 
  *  Investment Objectives 
  *  Time Horizon 
  *  Risk Appetite 
  *  Tax Liability  
  *  Insurance Needs 

Accordingly, we would be able to suggest suitable investment options. We specialize in investing through mutual funds and other financial products. We don't advise on direct equity investing.

We are a fee-based advisory company. We are not associated with/nor agents of any mutual fund, insurance company or any other financial organisation. We do not earn any commission from any company.
