There has been a boom in the mutual fund investments in the past decade, which, was at it peak since 2016. In this scenario, the book makes itself relevant to the masses. For those who wonder why the whole hubbub about mutual funds, the book is the answer.
The book is a pointer to our resources and a guideline to our expenses and savings. Author analyses how the change in money value could be made use of and bypassed while investing. Inflation is the greatest threat to the economy and unfortunately, it is inevitable as well. For a person like me, who always used to take the backseat when it comes to discussions regarding investments. Mutual funds, equity funds and debt funds has been alien terms for me. But the book has cited the terms in a simple narrative that enables the laymen to take the right investing decisions.
Unlike the other books on economy, the book uses a vernacular language instead of cramming the brains of the readers with incomprehensible technical terms. This is the USP of the book. I won't be surprised if I see the book among the management textbooks or that of economy students. The book is clearly for novices. Hence the experts might be flustered if not approached in the right spirit. The book is more apt to the beginners as well as students.
Although the information shared in the book is educative to a great extend, the book somehow paints the whole mutual fund scheme in a bright light that the grey area are conveniently overlooked. Apart from that the conscious or accidental attempt to portray real estate as an inferior option intrigued me. Though real estate has high chances of a doom, so does other investment options, especially since we talk about long term investment. This part, however failed to convince me. The chapters are short and gives just a glimpse of several areas like investment planning for child education. Nonetheless, the mini chapters for the investment planning of defence employees, divorce cases, legacy planning etc and briefly touched. Eventhough a detailed account of these make the book unusually large, a little more indulgence into the same would have made the book complete.
Financial education is a lost concept in our country where only people who either are from that stream or are passionate about it pursue and are endowed with. The frightening aura of dangerous and risky, especially money is a phenomenon that does a lot to keep potential investors away. This is why, Dr. Jindal believes that if an individual is given the right tools and techniques then he can easily apply them to work smart and get richer. The simple goal of the book is to help people realise that it isn’t always the harder, tenous road to increasing your wealth and it can be done the smarter, easier way through clear financial investment.
Mutual Funds : the investment instrument which pools money to buy and invest in securities. This is done either through SIP or Systematic Investment Planning or Lump Sum. SIP means investing small amounts of money over a long period of time which gives you control over how much one wants to put in and risk. Lump Sum investment on the other hand is a one off investment with little to no changes during the period of the portfolio.
The book goes into great detail about the different types of mutual funds, their benefits and yields for the reader to know and decide which one would suit him best. Not only does he make sure the language is simple and unpretentious, the concepts are explained through examples and diagrams to further aid in the understanding. What I absolutely loved about this one is that while it makes sure you get all the concepts and fundamentals right and your wealth increases in real time, legacy planning is done to ensure that your wealth is safe even after you have left the world.
It explains the importance of writing a will and ensuring that your family’s future is safe from contingencies even after your death. While it is a topic not everyone is comfortable in choosing and debating, it is one of the most required tools of today’s world.
Legacy planning: it’s a financial planning that helps a person bequeath his assets and wealth to the rightful heir(s).
In an conservative country like ours, division and allocation of assets is seen as a derogatory action, done only when absolutely necessary lest it cut down family ties. It shows the importance of a voluntary will and the shortfalls of not doing it. It also explains the concept of a Private Trust and the reasons of choosing it over a will. All in all, it is a book that is not only important but also, indispensable if you are looking to gain knowledge about financial planning during and after your lifetime.
While I am already someone well aware of the topics covered and have invested my time to learn about financial planning early on, this book will remain my go to guide if I am ever in the need of some help with the same. I love the way something that obscure has been tackled, explained and simplified so that our youth, with their immense passion, potential and reason can finally take a smarter route towards wealth and riches instead of looking down upon the same. Needless to say, it is a 5 star read. I would recommend it to anyone and everyone, because even if you are not going to invest anytime soon, it would be a great tool to help you as well as other around you.
