Wake-up! Goddess Laxmi Favors ‘Early Birds’
This is common wisdom, yet, only a handful of people seem to follow it and reap the benefits. Investing early simply gives the investor an edge on two fronts- Time & Accumulation. If you start investing early, your funds will have more time to grow. Moreover, compounding will yield better returns for you if you get a sufficient head start. Starting early investment comes with another benefit- You will have to set aside smaller annual investment amounts as compared to later years of investment (provided your goal remains the same). One of the best ways to get started early for wealth building is investing in Aviva’s Wealth Builder Plan that gives you guaranteed returns.
Plan Your ‘Golden Years’ Like You Plan Laxmi Aarti
Every penny you invest is for your future. Why not begin with retirement planning and securing your golden years? If you decide to start investing today, a retirement plan will be the best option. Retirement wealth plans come with several benefits apart from the peace of mind. You’ll be able to reap tax benefits upon the maturity of the plan, match the cost of living years from now without worrying about inflation, and even get regular income if the plan allows. For instance, Aviva’s Annuity Plus plan gives you income security, insurance security, and many more benefits post-retirement.
“Risk it all & lose it all”- Rough Note by Laxmi ji
Human ambition knows no bounds. We are the creatures of passion who love to crack our goals. However, every achievement comes with a certain level of risk. Investments are no different. It is a bit of timeless advice that every successful investor sticks to no matter what. You should only invest as per your risk appetite and not more than that. In other words, look for investment opportunities that suit your risk profile. If you can afford to lose a certain amount in a riskier investment, the reward will be higher and the option will suit you. On the other hand, if losing a small amount makes you lose peaceful sleep, go with safer & consistent returning investment options.
“If you diversify, you are smart”- says Sukh Sampati Daata, Laxmi Mata
There is no rationale behind ‘losing it all’ if things go wrong. You will find this tip even in the most fundamental books teaching about investments & wealth. Ideally, your portfolio should match your risk profile. If you are a conservative investor, your portfolio must have investment instruments and assets that give consistent returns without much risk. If you are a risk-taking investor looking for higher returns, your portfolio, for e.g. should contain more equity options, etc. If you diversify all your investment, the poor performance of one or two assets will still balance out your net returns vis-a-via other assets.
