SEBI has come out with EOP guidelines which hugely impacts how Direct Plans are currently being sold in the country. Read on for finer details:

1) All online platforms to classify themselves as EOP1 or EOP2 which means an Execution-Only Platform

#mutualfunds #directplans #SEBI
2) Background - Most of the online platforms offering Direct Plans operate under the SEBI RIA (advisory) regulations but owing to the size & scale of business they act as mere facilitators of Direct Plans. They dont necessarily give full-fledged advisory services to clients.
3) To bring more clarity around such online platforms, SEBI has issued new circular which allows such platform to move from being advisory in nature to being execution paltforms.

4) All platforms will have to opt one mechanism --EOP 1 or EOP2.

But, the ability of politics to drive sentiment is influenced by how much the outcome of the election will drive change. If change is likely to be significant and for the better, the markets can run up ahead of elections. (3/n)

UPI vs Credit Cards ⚔️

Feb 2017 -
• UPI - 1,900 Cr
• Credit Cards - 28,740 Cr

Feb 2023 -
• UPI - 12.3 Lakh Cr
• Credit Card - 11.9 Lakh Cr

The two payment technologies are duelling for the same space

Here's why credit cards are growing ⤵️
It's largely due to reward points 🏆

In recent years, banks and credit card companies have been offering more and more lucrative reward programs to attract customers to use their cards 🤩
These rewards can include cashback, discounts on purchases, travel perks, and more ✈️

Many customers find the promise of these rewards too good to skip and are using their credit cards more often to earn them 🛍️

According to a survey - 57% of all Indians (around 80.7 crores) have less than ₹5,000 in their savings account or emergency fund 🤯

This is an alarming statistic that highlights the lack of a savings culture in India ⚠️
One of the reasons for this could be the widespread adoption of digital payments in the country 📲 💳

While digital payments have made transactions easier and more convenient, they have also made it easier for people to spend money without realizing it 💸
With digital payments, people are no longer limited by the amount of cash they have in their wallets.

They can simply use their phone or card to make purchases 🛍️, often without even thinking about the money they are spending 🤔

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).
