Starting A New Business? 7 Key Points To Keep In Mind.
Online investments are the order of the day, and your financial consultants can guide you on how to operate them, saving valuable time and energy.
With the changing times the instruments we save in and the way we perceive investments have changed big time. And better understanding of the investment products have made us less vulnerable to the volatility in our investments. Traditionally your adviser would only share the return on your investments if you ask him for the details; or when the times were really rosy and he wanted you to invest more, he would willingly share the performance of your investments.
But today with a mature investor base and technological boom, it is easy for an investor to make and track investments and advisor to facilitate smooth transections and convenience of knowing the performance on a daily basis.
One can make online MF investments with almost all the mutual fund providers, either through their own online portal or through platforms specifically launched to facilitate investments into MF. This has also helped MF build a huge SIP base of Rs. 5000 Cr, which gets invested every month in MF by investors.
The future generation financial advisers and consultants promote self-sustaining, transparent, online investments and tools, which help them track their client portfolios regularly and also provide clients anytime access to view the same. So, the investments made with specific objectives can be easily tracked and any deviation can be monitored and reviewed to make necessary changes.
As, I always say every tool or facility comes with its own set of challenges. The online investments and tools would only work to your benefit if ideal fund selection as per your risk appetite and objective is done. If the same is not analysed and worked upon your investments would not give you the desired results. If the selection is as per the objective plan, one must stick to the same and also not make random redemption decisions; just because you have access to it. Many investors make online investments without proper understanding and end up making losses due to poor judgement and no guidance.
Also, No technology can overwrite the alpha your advisor adds to your portfolio. Make use of the advice given by your financial adviser/ consultant and make online investments, according to the objective and timeline defined in consultation with them; and consult them every time you face a query or wish to make changes. The new era also has many independent consultants who would only charge you for the advice and let you execute your own investments online, if you wish to.
So, the online tools are for you to use and gives you a true touch and feel; as you can actually know the value of your investments on a real time basis!

If a woman insists on her prospective groom earning enough to keep her comfortable, she is not being “lazy”. She is just being practical, just like men!
When an actress described women as “lazy” because they choose not to have careers and insist on only considering prospective grooms who earn a lot, many jumped to her defence.
Many men (and women) shared stories about how “choosy” women have now become.
One wrote in a now-deleted post that when they were looking for a bride for her brother, the eligible women all laid down impossible conditions – they wanted the groom to be not more than 3 years older than them, to earn at least 50k per month, and to agree to live in an independent flat.
Most of my women clients are caregivers—as mothers, wives and daughters. And so, they tend to feel guilty about their ambitions. Belief in themselves is hard to come by.

“I don’t want to take a pay cut and accept the offer, but everyone around me is advising me to take up what comes my way,” Tanya* told me over the phone while I was returning home from the New Delhi World Book Fair. “Should I take it up?” She summed up her dilemma and paused.
I have been coaching Tanya for the past three months. She wants to change her industry, and we have been working together on a career transition roadmap.
