I've come to the realization that many of us Kenyans didn't have the advantageous of growing up with financially savvy parents who passed on some wisdom. So here is my #personalfinance thread.

1. The best time to start was 20 years ago. The second best time is now... 1/n
2. If you can, save at least 25% of your income per month. You get about 40 years to work. And if you make it to your 90s have about 30 years of living post retirement. Your 40 years of work need to support your 30 years of retirement. So if you can save more than 25%, do it.
3. Save first. Spend what is left after. Have a very strict saving amount every month. Make your spending fit into the rest.
4. You can save more by doing one of two things: earning more or cutting your expenses.
5. Scrutinize your expenses a lot. Use apps like Monefy... 2/n

Why are savings rates stuck at 3.5%? Despite being deregulated in Oct 2011, banks have stuck to 3.5-4% over the past decade. Some exceptions existed such as Kotak Mahindra's 811 account which offered 6% in 2017 and 5% from 2018-2020. But these have also disappeared over time.
In today's era of rising rates, this is a free lunch for banks. The lunch was a tiny snack in 2020-21 when rates were cut. Moving money to an FD wasn't that rewarding. You got maybe 1-2% more. Today, that free lunch is a buffet. Savings rates are half of FD rates of even 1 year.
The same gap exists with returns of money market funds. In both cases you give up some liquidity. In case of FDs, a sudden need for money will mean breaking it and losing interest (note sweep-in sweep-out FDs can sort this out).

Yesterday Sebi released several discussion papers to tame the last wild west frontier in wealth management - Alternative Investment Funds (#AIFs). Why? What has Sebi proposed?
The lack of regulation was pushing the industry to sell AIFs and collect high commissions rather than highly regulated mutual funds. 4-5% upfront commissions in some cases
What has Sebi proposed? 3 things: 1) Make it compulsory for AIFs to have a commission-free direct option. Post this, it will be easier for direct investors to buy and Registered Investment Advisors (RIAs) to offer them to their clients. RIAs are not allowed to collect commissions
