Why is it difficult to save money?

Have your financial priorities changed with age?
Our life plans and dreams change at each stage of life as we age along the way. This week’s podcast walks you through a conversation that our Founder - Ashish Modani had with a 72-year-old prospective client. This client has a scattered bag of investments in his portfolio which he chose to invest in with no specific goal in his mind. His concern - No Returns!  But this concern didn't bother Ashish. Questions like - "Does the client have a succession plan in place (given he has no kids)? Was his wife aware of his investments? How will the money be used for the well-being of his wife in case of an uncertainty?" were concerns that were bigger than just ‘No Returns’ for Ashish and should have been for the client too! Listen to this latest podcast as Ashish delves into the details of what one should be worrying about at this age and why?

Managing finance is more than knowing the best investments
With the world engulfed by Coronavirus, most of us seem to know the symptoms and assume to know the cure of this novel disease. But is it right to assume the cure considering this virus affects different bodies in different ways? Absolutely not. Concerned by the same, is one of our clients who is a Doctor. He made Ashish aware of the fact that his patients were trusting the internet and only approached him when things got out of control. They are beginning to trust their friends and family for treatments even when they know they are not experienced and qualified to do so.  As the conversation shifted to finance, Ashish was startled to know that the same client was over-exposed to a mutual fund scheme on the advice of one of his close friends and funnily contradicted his own explanation.  Listen to this interesting podcast to know how the conversation unfolds.

Financial Independence : Every Kids Business
As parents, we’ve always wanted our kids to be independent and self-reliant when it comes to managing their own lives. We take pride in their first job, their first salary, their first bonus, and so on. Isn’t it?! But why do we tag them as ‘Kids’ when we talk about managing finances? Why do we manage our grown-up children’s funds on behalf of them? Why do we assume that they won’t understand what financial planning means?  Learning is a part of earning. Financial planning is a life skill every kid should be familiar with from a very young age. If your child is eligible to earn a regular income, why can’t he/she understand about finances? Listen to the podcast to understand why should you enable your children to become financially independent.

Retirement v/s Financial Security for Grownup Kids- What would you choose?
This important anecdote from a discussion with one of my clients will give you a deeper view of the root cause of why parents end up being dependant on their kids in their old age.  Please keep in mind, as a parent, Retirement Planning is as important for you as providing for your children and their dreams. In most cases, parents outlive their money in their old age and tend to be dependant on their kids. But do you really want to be dependent on your kids when you have been independent your whole life? To understand why we ask our clients to save funds for themselves first is to primarily secure their future before anyone else’s. Listen to our latest podcast to understand where this thought stems from.
