Equity is without a doubt, one of the greatest tools for building wealth. Stocks must be a part, of nearly any investment portfolio. Over the last decade, the average person’s interest in the stock market has grown exponentially. This demand coupled with innovation in trading technology has opened up the markets so much that nowadays it is very easy for anyone to buy and sell stocks.
However, despite their popularity, most people don’t fully understand stocks. People think that stocks are the magic answer to instant wealth with no risk. The only solution to this is education. The key to protecting yourself in the stock market is to understand where you are putting your money or get a financial planner/analyst to handle your equity portfolio. Stocks are generally considered riskier investments and require a higher rate of return. You can lose all of your investment with stocks. The flip-side of this is you can make a lot of money if you invest in the right company. Make sure you don’t get into the market before you are ready. Be conservative and never invest in anything you do not understand. Before you jump in without the right knowledge, think about this old stock market saying:
Remember Bulls make money. Bears make money, but pigs get slaughtered.
What our clients say
I have been investing on and off in shares and mutual funds since the past few decades. There was never a serious effort at looking at stocks and related instruments.
Since the past two years on the insistence of Jaideep Parekh , I started making small but regular investments in the market. The investments have shown growth and the growth has been significant enough, for me to try out some more. As of now it looks like investing in stocks and mutual funds is better than so called and assumed safe investments like real estate and fixed deposits. Benefits of taxation along with growth in investment is a big advantage of investing in stock markets and mutual funds over other so called safe investments. Liquidity which was presumed by me to be a difficulty while investing in stocks etc, has I find now been my assumption and nothing more than that. With regular interaction and advice from Panam, I realize that my fears were unfounded.
I am happy dealing with Panam and would be continuing with them in the future.
