Mutual Funds - The Future of Investing

A decade of pension fund growth in Nigeria has prepared the ground for a boom in the country’s mutual fund sector.

Investments in carefully constructed higher performing risk-managed funds now outperform interest on bank deposits and... Image
...even land.

In 2020 alone, for example, assets under management in Nigeria’s Mutual Funds grew by 50% - topping N1.6 trillion.

Mutual funds are investment funds that pool money from many investors to purchase securities, like stocks, bonds, money market instruments,....
....and other assets.

Mutual funds are operated by professional money managers who seek to assemble the right mix of funds, balancing risk with growth according to investors’ risk appetite, growth needs and investment horizons.

It is in the management of these funds that...

parachute or #lifeline bonus because of its ability to support players with additional funds in case they haven’t hit a win with their real money.

The bottom line is that you can withdraw winnings at any point in your play provided you still haven’t tapped into the bonus #funds
surgaplay.cmonsite.fr/bersama-dengan… However, the moment you start using your bonus balance, all wagers and eventual prizes are considered bonus money, being subject to wagering requirements. You can often hear punters say that they don’t claim welcome deals, giving preference to cashback
mposurga.sharetribe.com/en/listings/17… options. Well, the truth is that the great bulk of sign-up bonuses are sticky, which means they are non-cashable. You can use them for playing your favorite online slot but once you request a withdrawal, the bonus amount will vanish from your balance.

Thread about trading strategy and fund performance analysis. #tradingstrategy #funds

Advanced performance analysis is fine but nothing beats common sense. Below are some common sense ways of analyzing strategy and fund performance.
1. Annualized return

The strategy must offer an acceptable annualized return subject to constraints. Very low annualized return is undesirable but also high annualized return that comes at high risk is also undesirable and even more so.
Note that even if annualized return is low, the strategy may be acceptable due to the leveragability it offers. Often is better to leverage 2X a strategy with a smooth equity than use one w/o leverage but with volatile equity.

Thanks to @GeoffCutmore, @cnbcKaren & the #SquawkBox team for having me on this morning's show.

We discussed #bonds & #centralbanks, touched on #supplychains & talked of #Growth's vulnerability, #commodities' appeal.

Slide deck follows:-

The bet is that #energy cannot *possibly* rise as far and fast this year as last, but what about all the other inputs? To what extent are these and other costs yet to be passed on?

Does It Make Sense To #Invest In The National Pension Scheme?

A thread 🧵👇
National Pension Scheme is a defined contribution scheme launched in 2004.

There are two vehicles to make your investments in:

1️⃣ Tier 1
Tier 1 is primarily for retirement where you get the tax benefits as well.
2️⃣ Tier 2
Tier 2 is for those who want to make voluntary contributions with an option withdraw at any time.

You need a tier 1 account to open a tier 2 account.

The crypto boom is taking off like crazy! Everybody now wants to own digital money. People are using Exchanges/P2P to buy them. However, exchanges are currently the most popular choice for many! So it's high time we talk about them & understand "How they Work" in this 🧵 #thread! Image
Table of Contents: 📝
▪️What's an #exchange & how it works?
▪️Who are #MarketMakers & why we need them?
▪️What's #liquidity & why it matters?
▪️Types of Exchanges:
- Centralized Exchanges #CEX
- Decentralized Exchanges #DEX

#Retweet if you like the content! Let's get started! 🚀
What's an #Exchange?
It's just a platform that matches #buyers & #sellers. They say what price, they are willing to buy/sell any particular asset, the exchange matches these 2 orders & the trade happens. The price at which the trade got executed becomes the "Last Traded Price".

"Do you even need to raise #funds?"

@RajanAnandan talks about the basics first while addressing the 192 finalists of @startupindia's National #Startup Awards 2020 at a fundraising bootcamp. Highlights 👇
1/ To begin with...
2/ “Understanding the objective of a fundraise is more important than the actual amount raised during the round. Some times founders are misled to think that raising as much funds as possible is the right answer. That's why the objective is key."

I don't do this often so please bear with me. Here's a thread about the alarming developments in #Greece & #New_Democracy's hard-right/#authoritarian turn.👇This photo by D. Tosidis (credit: EPA-EFE; Source:
ANA-MPA) can act as an intro to the thread. 0/ webgate.epa.eu/webgate?EVENT=…
So, is #New_Democracy govt driving #Greece towards democratic backsliding? Today after we witnessed yesterday's disgraceful images of #police brutally attacking & arresting protesting students inside the country’s biggest university is a sadly fitting day to pose the question. 1/
If we take #Hungary & #Poland as exemplary cases in the literature & as points of comparison, the answer is likely to be yes. The most common symptoms of democratic backsliding mentioned by scholars seem to be manifesting in #Greece since July 2019 with disturbing consistency. 2/

Can't agree more about most #DAO projects are like countries with parliaments but without the relevant executive #government @verbine Would love to incorporate an executive structure to Digital Native Organizations #DNO on #Autonomy Network. Thread here 👇👇👇
For the success of Community owned organizations and Digital companies there is a need for a strong executive team while I also feel a need for a strong governance council. #token #governance models #cryptonetworks
To solve some of the short comings of #DAO models we are proposing a model of Digital Native Organizations(DNO) with

1. Digital Ownership
2. Governance with decentralization as a range rather than a state
3. Token incentives for all stakeholders

1️⃣ #Unit400 is the special forces unit of the #QudsForce, focused on planning and conducting attacks outside #Iran. Within this remit, it also takes responsibility for transferring #military aid to terror and #guerrilla organisations around the world...
2️⃣ and coordinating their activities in order to prepare them to carry out attacks that serve the interests of the Iranian regime...

The HQ of #QudsForce's #Unit400 is in southeast #Tehran (Iran) The office run by the unit commander, Hamed Abdallahi.
3️⃣ Both the #IRGC and #QudsForce have been secretive and #Iran keeps most, if not all, of their activities and resources well guarded. However, given the #military unit’s expansive operations, they developed another section within the organisation for more specialised operations.

#Traders path #Futures & #Options

1: Understanding the game

Trading is not much different from playing poker game or betting on various other things.

It’s just a structured game where rules are not made by anyone, but needs to be followed by everyone in game.
Understanding those rules and adjusting yourself is a continuous process which will never end. As #SEBI would keep on changing rules.

The important thing to understand is any thing in life if we want to succeed we need patience and dedication.
A 2 hour webinar or 2 day course can’t teach you about #CapitalMarkets or #Trading it’s impossible.

Personally i feel have around 40-50% knowledge about capital markets after more than 12years of trading experience.

All categories of #mutualfunds (including ETFs) would be covered under #stampduty charges for units issued in demat & non-demat form. It will cover equity, derivatives & currency trades. Stamp Duty = Direct Tax levied by the govt. u/s 3 of Indian Stamp Act, 1899. @AmarUjalaNews
#StampDuty charges:

Equity (delivery) - 0.015% or ₹1,500 per crs on buy-side

#Equity (intra-day) - 0.003% or ₹300 per crs

#Futures (equity & #commodity) - 0.002% or ₹200 per crs

#Options (equity & commodity) - 0.003% or ₹300 per crs

#Currency - 0.001% or ₹10 per crs
- The #stampduty will also be applicable on #AlternativeInvestmentFunds (AIFs)

- Impact is more on the short term #investments by the #investors

- No stamp duty on #redemption of #mutualfund units.

- Impact at #portfolio level too i.e when fund manager executes transaction.

Most of the rally at the longer end of the yield curve has already come about since the time @RBI started reducing policy rates. So, longer end of the #yield curve could thus prove less rewarding and risky (expected to encounter high #volatility) in the foreseeable #future. Image
- We may not see significant rally in longer duration funds.

- The rate cut would have limited impacted on prices & the yields in shorter duration #funds. (2) #mutualfunds #DebtFunds #debt #SaarthiZarooriHai #AssetAllocation
As govt. has raised its FY21 #borrowing limit by over 50% to ₹12 lakh crores from ₹7.8 lakh crores on account of COVID-19 #pandemic. Higher borrowing puts upward pressure on #bond #yields.

Extended COVID-19 lockdown is likely to amplify #credit risk (owing to a slowdown in business). #Investors must stick to #debt #mutualfunds where the #fund manager does not chase #yields by taking higher #CreditRisk. @fifaindiaorg @cafemutual @networkfp @bsindia @livemint (1)
#Investors should prefer to #invest in instruments issued by government & public sector enterprises. Must stay away from those having high exposure to private issuers, whether AAA or not. No one should forget that #investing in #debt #funds is, was & will never be risk-free. (2)
Currently it is proposed to opt for a pure #LiquidFund and/or #OvernightFund which does not have high exposure to private issuers, no matter AAA or not.

Assess your #RiskAppetite & #investment tenure while #investing in #debt #funds & prefer safety of principal over returns.

Long Thread [Alert]

1/n Something big is up at @binance. First @Poloniex, then @steemit and now @CoinMarketCap. If we go by the reported news on the @TheBlock__ , this could be worth $400 Million. Assuming that it is not an #AprilFoolsDay prank...

theblockcrypto.com/post/60371/bin…
2/n Over the last 12 months, @cz_binance has acquired at least three companies - @BinanceJEX, @WazirXIndia, and @dapp_review. Looking at the big picture, it is a notable development as @cz_binance mops up the key players in the #decentralized fundraising space
3/n If you're looking to develop a #dapp, your best best is soon going to be the #Binance Blockchain. Why? Because it tacitly lets #developers know that it has the most well-oiled machinery in the much muddied #crypto space.

Recent actions by the @federalreserve have been awe-inspiring; I’m not sure what words would be stronger than that- but they’re required.
The #Fed has gotten at interest #rates, the #mortgage market, the financing markets, and the #Treasury market (and particularly the functioning of the off-the-run-issues).
Specifically, tonight we’ve seen an historic 100 basis point #policy rate cut (and a commitment to maintain it until conditions normalize), #bank borrowing from the discount window cut 150 bps, to 0.25%, with term #funds to be offered…

Despite having a monopolistic situation in many businesses, many #PSUcompanies haven't generated attractive #returns for their #shareholders. More than for #investors, the govt. is likely to benefit by the provision of allowing 80C deduction on #investments. #Budget2019
PSU #ETFs have a high portfolio concentration & single sectoral exposure. For eg. CPSE ETF holds over 60% of portfolio in energy sector & top 4 stocks constitutes over 75% of portfolio. Similarly, Bharat-22 holds 55% of portfolio in top 5 stocks. #Budget2019 @TheEconomist
#Investors having primary objective to #savetax, cannot ignore the performance of #ELSS #mutualfunds. Fund manager, considers number of factors like macroeconomic indicators, financial strength of a company & its competitive advantage etc. while constructing portfolio.#Budget2019
