Oblivious of financial planning and all that jazz?

Oblivious of financial planning and all that jazz?


May 1, 2017

Rahul and Ajay are college friends who are currently working in reputed firms in the country. Both of them have now been working for 10 years. They happen to meet each other in their college reunion party and they were delighted to see each other after a long time. Rahul asked Ajay about his job and his experience to which Ajay replied, “The job is good. I earn a decent amount, if not much. Fortunately, I have been able to invest my savings and made good returns that covered the inflation well. The ongoing SIP’s will fetch enough in the long run and I am fairly satisfied with my financial planning.”

Rahul was awestruck and gazed at his friend with curious eyes. Little did he understand the complex jargon that Ajay used. He did not have the slightest idea of what investing is all about. He had always considered it very risky and something that was not his cup of tea. But seeing Ajay satisfied and happy with it, he began to wonder: Why is it that I can’t do it and he can? What made me think that investment is too risky to venture into it?

Ever wondered as to what the answer could be:

1) Lack of information/research

Rahul did not research enough about the various avenues where he can invest. His financial planning was restricted to conventional instruments like Fixed Deposits. Rahul was therefore a victim of inadequate information and consequently, misguided opinions.

2) Financial Planning is akin to stress

Many a times, we feel that investment could be stressful and time consuming. But, there will be only as much stress as we want to have. Some seasoned advice from professional experts will make you realize that not only is financial planning inevitable but it is also fairly simple.

3) Unfruitful experiences in the past

Once bitten, twice shy?? Investing is no different either. We tend to avoid investing if we have suffered heavy losses in the past. Not only do we force the choice of not investing upon us but also miss out on opportunities that arise from time to time.
