Self assessment: Assessing your needs, expectations and risk profile is of prime
importance, failing which, one will make more mistakes in putting money in right
places than otherwise. One should identify his degree of risk bearing capacity and
also clearly state the expectations from the investments. Irrational expectations
will only bring pain.

Understand where the money is going: it is important to identify the nature of


investment. One can lose substantially if one picks the wrong kind of Investment.
In order to avoid any confusion, it is better to go through literature such as offer
document and fact sheets of companies provide on their funds.

Dont rush in picking funds, think first: Firstly one has to decide, what the
purpose of his investment is and then purpose should be guiding light for all

vi

investments. It is thus important to know the risks associated with the fund and
align it with the quantum of risk one is willing to take.
