My name is Praveen and am a software engineer (pffff). I have made my first investment of Rupees One Thousand in two mutual funds from my very first paycheck in 2008. I had the fortunate of also not investing in LIC, ULIP. So whenever I read about articles which mentioned on how not to invest in these instruments, I felt good. Along my investment journey, I am fortunate to have an investment advisor whose thoughts are almost similar to Vipin’s. Using his advice I was able to insurance my life, medical and accidental bases. I have also introduced my friends to early investments via mutual funds and benefits of insurance. Even after having checked most of the checklist items, I don’t like to relying solely on others advice. I wanted to know the reasons for choosing a mutual fund and able to create a portfolio myself. And I concur with Vipin that all the information is available on internet in this digital world but with a lot of white noise. And thats the reason for my enrollment in this course. To see clearly through all that white noise.
And for all the other like minded people, hearty congratulations. Hope we will learn to take right decisions for ourselves and find a little more of wisdom.August 26, 2017 at 3:55 pm #10718Vipin KhandelwalParticipant

True, as IT is very new industry(≤50 years) compared to other industries and we are the initial industry employees, that is first 30-40 years of IT’s emergence. And no one is happy with IT, as many I met with, so that pffff is justified..????
Let’s also see what’s in it for us in established finance industry and this platform should be a lot of help in understanding the personal finance which is really needed not just the finances of the company or business we are working for.
