Secure Future: Insurance Planning

In life, we have to deal with many risks - at personal level and at work (Business / Profession).

Depending on the nature / type of the risk there are different ways of avoiding, mitigating, transferring and accepting the risks and losses arising out of that risky event.

Certainly, we can not keep all the risks without doing anything about them; neither we can use the same strategy / method for all of them.

Insurance is a Risk Transfer Strategy. The risk is transferred to someone else who can better handle / absorb it - the insurance companies. Of course it comes for a price...well very tiny one.

There are few Insurance covers, that are mandated by law. Like third party motor insurance cover or some industrial insurance covers.

There are lot more like Life Insurance, Health Insurance etc which are not mandated but very critically needed by everyone. Recognizing the dire need for the insurance requirements is the first step. Many people fail to recognize the risks they face and need for insurance against those risks. That's where we help. First recognizing the risks and then quantifying the potential value at risk. Then looking for appropriate Insurance cover and then getting it. That's what is Insurance Planning is all about in short. Insurance is a Plan-B (Alternate / Back-up Plan); means, if your normal plan (Plan-A) to achieve a goal doesn't go as plan because of some risk, then your alternate stand-by plan will take care of it. Though Insurance is a Plan-B, it is a first step to do before you start chalking out your Plan-A.

Retire Rich: Retirement Planning

Unlike most other financial goals, Retirement has two parts / phases - Accumulation and Distribution. Most of the cases, both the phases are of very long period. Retirement is mostly a longest and biggest of all the goals one may have, irrespective in which phase you are there currently.

In the accumulation phase you are looking for building a sizable corpus to take care of your expenses for rest of your life after retirement.

The distribution phases is also spread over decades and hence you need to ensure you wont run out of money. So, proper planning is very important in both the phases.

Unfortunately, people don't realize the need for retirement planning until they come very near to the retirement age. That's a serious problem because retirement corpus required being huge, it can't be accumulated in short period of time. And it is near impossible task to plan for comfortable latter phase (distribution) of retirement without proper planning of the first phase. A person starting earlier in investing for retirement will amass far bigger corpus by investing far lesser amount than a person starting late with bigger amounts of money. Always in investing, time (duration of investment) is more important than amount of investment.

Invest Smart: Investment Planning

Investment Planning is not just choosing a scheme to invest in. Selecting the scheme one of the (in fact, the last) steps involved in Investment planning. While Insurance Planning is Plan-B, Investment planning is part of Plan-A (Main / Normal Plan of achieving you financial goals).

The ideal way to go about investing is to link / earmark them to a specific financial goal. The moment goal comes before an investment, we will know the purpose / objective of the investment (wealth preservation or growth), Investment Horizon (tenure / longevity of the investment), Cash Flow Requirements (Liquidity Options) and Quantum of Investment Required. These are the main points that decide the appropriate investment instrument to be chosen. Then is understanding risk comfort level. Based on these things, the type of investment will be selected. Once the type of investment is chosen the last step is choosing a specific scheme or instrument to invest in from the options available.

We help you follow this simple sounding but meticulousness & expertise seeking task.

It doesn't get over there. Your investment portfolio needs to be monitored and re-balanced / re-organised periodically.

KYC Service

KYC (Know Your Client) compliance is mandatory now in any kind of investments. Without KYC compliance you will not be able to transact in many of the Financial Services.

Now, KYC in India is centralized and standardized (uniform) across financial services industry; it is called CKYC.

CKYC refers to Central KYC (Know Your Customer), an initiative of the Government of India. The aim of this initiative is to have a structure in place which allows investors to complete their KYC only once before interacting with various entities across the financial sector. CKYC will be managed by CERSAI (Central Registry of Securitization Asset Reconstruction and Security Interest of India), which is authorized by Government of India to function as the Central KYC Registry (CKYCR). The objective of CKYCR is to reduce the burden of producing KYC documents and getting those verified every time when the investor deals with a financial entity for the first time. Thus, CKYCR will act as centralized repository of KYC records of investors in the financial sector with uniform KYC norms and inter-usability of the KYC records across the sector.

CKYC can be done through few authorized entities. We are one such.
