When someone says the word #SIP, most of us associate it with equity #mutualfunds. But did you know that SIPs are possible in the fixed income asset class as well?
#Debt SIPs can be one of the most useful ways to meet your short term goals, recurring goals, and asset allocation needs.
SIPs in #debtfunds can be used to meet yearly school fees, build an emergency reserve, your annual vacation, regular recurring expenses, working capital, etc.

There are 1000s of companies listed in #NSE & #BSE, but how many of these companies were able to make at least more than 10% returns on yearly basis? Here's the details
There are always certain stocks that makes multi fold returns in short span of time, for example all Tech stocks were making huge returns during 1999–2000 period and all real estate stocks were making huge returns during 2006–2008 and NBFC recently.
So when you calculate annualized returns of all stocks, such bubble stocks can also come into list.
Instead I calculated all stocks yearly returns since listing and checked how many times, they were able to make at least 10% returns on yearly basis.

After the buildup and the crash-course in my last post, here is my post analysing Promoter Financing market in India. The analysis attempts to explain the slowdown in promoter financing in India and brings out some interesting facts. Read on to know more. Thread 1/12
As per BSE data, the aggregate value of promoters' pledged shares was ~1.85 lakh crore as at Aug 23, 2019. In comparison, the value of promoters' pledged shares stood at ~Rs 2.5 lakh crore as at Aug 30, 2018. The fall in pledge levels indicate slowdown in promoter financing. 2/12
An ET article (July 22), observed that 'pledging of shares by promoters of NSE companies dropped to a six-year low'. Another ET article (Aug 15), noted that 'interest rates on loans against shares (LAS) have surged by about 300 basis points in the past 3 months'. 3/12

This post is a crash course on promoter funding, which serves as a bedrock for my next post.

Promoter funding/ financing, is the colloquial term used for raising of debt funds by Promoters of companies usually against the security/ comfort of shares. Thread 1/13
A promoter, many a times, needs money for (a) equity infusion in a new/ growing business, (b) personal use (c) enhancing stake in established business (d) family settlement etc.

If he doesn't have enough cash at his disposal, he borrows from finance firms. 2/13
The most liquid and widely accepted collateral/ security for these borrowings are shares of established (usually listed) companies.

These shares are pledged to the financing firm (or a trustee) to avail of the debt facility. 3/13

(1/n) Among many things addressed today in Finance Minister's Meet with Press, she addressed there will be development of Credit Default Swap (CDS) Markets in consultation with @SEBI and @RBI RBI. This step was taken following the credit events of IL&FS, DHFL etc in past yr
@sebi @RBI (2/n) Now what is Credit Default Swap (CDS)/ Markets?
CDS is kind of an insurance against a risk of default on a loan by a company. Company – reference entity, default – credit event.
@sebi @RBI (3/n)Why will a seller do that? Coz under such contract buyer will pay a regular amt to seller 4 protection he has bought for his bond, incase of a credit event. Seller will gain incase there is no credit event since he has got regular payment from buyer for his ‘protection’.

8 questions to ask before you invest in a Credit Fund.

Q1) How much yield should the fund offer?
A) The principle of 'higher-the-better' does not apply to credit funds. Higher yields come with disproportionately higher risks. Funds offering 11%+ are a clear avoid. Thread 1/8
Q2) How diversified is the fund?
A) A fund with higher diversification is less risky. As per regulations, exposure in a company cannot exceed 10%. Well managed funds cap exposure in one company to 5% or lower. Lower exposure means lower hit on return if an accident happens. 2/8
Q3) Does the fund have high exit loads?
A) Usually exit loads ensure that investors allow fund managers time to execute strategies. However, very high exit loads often result in debt-traps restricting investors' exit even when there are glaring mistakes made by fund-managers. 3/8

I am revisiting the topic of Public Issue of Non-Convertible Debentures (NCDs) covered a couple of days back. Only this time, I am focusing on Subordinated (Tier II) NCDs that are slipped in (sometimes slyly) along with senior secured NCDs of NBFCs. Thread (1/9)
Refer to the picture, below (the pic is representative only). A subordinated NCD (circled in red) appears as one of the many maturity options. A naive investor may think that it is similar to other NCDs on offer, just that it has a longer maturity. (2/9)
What many investors are unaware of is the fact that subordinated NCDs are paid after senior NCD holders in-case the company goes into liquidation i.e. subscribers to option I to VIII NCDs, in the pic above, would be paid before payments are made to option IX to XI NCDs. (3/9)

There have been a flurry of public issue of NCDs lately. These issues are primarily from NBFCs who are finding it tough to raise funds though banks and MFs. Here, I explain why the public issue NCDs are not in the interest of retail investors. Thread (1/9)
A) There is a common misconception that public issue NCDs are akin to Fixed Deposits (FDs). FDs of PSU banks are covered under the umbrella limit of 1 lakh deposit insurance. NCDs are not. A case in point is the expected loss to retail investors in DHFL public issue NCDs. 2/9
B) The rate offered by these NBFCs in public issue is much lower than what they offer in privately placed deals. Further, a substantial fee is cornered by brokers for selling these NCDs to retail investors. 3/9

Day 2 on Twitter. Coming to the next set of awards - The "Foot in Mouth" Awards. A clear winner in this category is DSP Mutual Fund. I have shortlisted them for their sheer cockiness. Thread. (1/10)
In September, 2018, the Fund House triggered a panic by selling DHFL bonds at distressed levels. It was a business call; and hence a benefit of doubt could be given. (2/10)
What cannot be forgiven though, is the brazenness with which the Fund house eulogised their portfolio selection capabilities. 3/10

If a person cares to get the right advice early in his #investing journey, outcomes will be far superior.

Where outcomes are poor or ordinary, the quality of #advice is the most likely cause.

Investors unduly worry about returns, even when quality of investing is decent. 1/5
Every step of my #investing journey, I received #GoodAdvice & #value everything I was taught. To this day, I seek constantly advice from the wiser. What I get, I freely give. As I learn, I teach. I rarely forget what was taught from day1, though my early Gurus are no more. 2/5
The early years are crucial. Starting with virtually nothing, we need to get #GoodAdvice, wise counsel & emotional support. From a few 1000s to one's first Lakh is the toughest part. From a lakh to a million is not easy either. Scale must be carefully sought. Most fail here. 3/5

Saving tips for salaried employees
__
Salary provides monthly income to meet monthly expenses. But, some times, we need more than salary. We must save every month, before hand, for those months. So, first step is to know why & when we shall need such higher amounts.
#budgeting
Invest every month
__
#Mutualfunds offer a convenient feature where a fixed amount is deducted every month on a date from your #bankaccount. This amount is invested in a scheme of your choice. Everything happens automatically. You just have to register once.
#SIP
Save first
__
SIP works best when you select the day of SIP quite close to the date of receipt of #salary in your bank, say, two days later.
This ensures that the first portion of your salary is diverted as saving and that saving is no longer a residual activity. It forms #habit

Thread on the @KotakMF #FMP saga; Attn: @IndiaSebi

Highlight is on an #AMC which, in an FMP, considers it #prudent to reduce the risk, of an asset, by accepting a riskier asset as #security; knowing, the first asset shall mature with the FMP, giving no time to act if defaulted.
We reserve further comment. We shall just answer few questions raised by #investors.

1. FMP has a #fixedhorizon, at the end of which investors expect their money back. Also, they expect not to lose money. Knowing these expectations, who decided to launch the FMP?
Ans:Kotak AMC
2. A high #yield #portfolio may be made in many ways. Risk can be protected by structuring deal in many ways. Who made a portfolio of high #coupon/yield (11%) #debt instruments by lending upto 40% to #borrowers against security of their companies #equity #shares?
Ans: Kotak AMC

MENTAL HEALTH VS FINANCIAL WEALTH
1. Mental illness is a clinical condition with physiological causes. Why people have varying interpretations of it, its solution lies beyond random advice to “just cheer up”. #WorldMentalHealthDay #MutualFunds #Investing #MyInvestmentPlan
2. Research indicates that that one in four people is affected by poor mental health and, of these, around four million struggle with their financial wellbeing. It is clear that these two issues are usually linked. #WorldMentalHealthDay #MutualFunds #Investing #MyInvestmentPlan
3. Depression, anxiety and psychotic disorders were among the common mental illnesses people in debt experience and there was an even higher link between suicide and debt. #WorldMentalHealthDay #MutualFunds #Investing #MyInvestmentPlan

WHERE DID MY MONEY GO?
1. It’s only a few days into the new month and I am down to my last N16,000. This reality stares me in the face as I look at my bank balance. Sadly, this will not be enough to cover my transportation and feeding until the end of the month. #MutualFunds
2. “Where did my money go?” this was the reoccurring question that kept coming to my mind. In a bid to answer this question, I made a detailed list of all my expenses so far and matched this information against my monthly income. #MutualFunds #MyInvestmentPlan #InvestNow
