Our Commitment

What matters a lot when you hire a Financial Planner?

In the realm of financial planning, the key is not just in selecting the right products but in making informed decisions that align with your life goals. Trust and professionalism stand at the core of our services. With SEBI’s RIA Regulations paving the way, we, as a SEBI-registered Fixed Fee-Only Financial Planner, offer transparency and over 15 years of expertise backed by a globally recognized CFP certification.

Trust

Trust is the foundation of financial security. Navigating a landscape cluttered with self-proclaimed financial advisors requires discernment. With the introduction of SEBI RIA Regulations, we are now positioned to offer Fixed Fee-Only Financial Planning services that align purely with your interests, ensuring an unbiased pathway to your financial goals.

Experience

As a SEBI-registered Fixed Fee-Only Financial Planner, we bring over 15 years of experience and the globally esteemed Certified Financial Planner (CFP) certification to the table. Our commitment lies in delivering ethical and professional financial planning services, tailored to meet the unique needs and aspirations of our clients.

Client-Centric

Our Services

What qualities do we seek in our clients?

We believe in simplifying the financial planning process for our clients so our approach focuses on delivering straightforward and cost-effective solutions that yield long-term benefits. Through our guidance, you’ll gain insights into low-cost index investments and uncomplicated strategies that outperform complex alternatives. We prioritize passive investing, with a significant emphasis on Index Funds for equity, to mitigate risks, avoid common investment pitfalls, and achieve financial freedom effortlessly.

Therefore, we are eager to associate with clients who possess the following qualities.

1) They must have a long-term vision rather than focusing on short-sighted, quick money-making ideas.

2) They must be willing to enhance their personal finance knowledge with the insights we share during the process.

3) They must be eager to ask questions rather than blindly following us; this will naturally turn them into a Do-It-Yourself investor.

4) They should have a clear vision and roadmap for when to disengage with us once they can efficiently manage their own money. We don’t want you to be our clients forever. Our philosophy is: hire a planner, streamline your finances, learn the art of managing your money, and then become your own planner instead of our client. However, if they are unable to manage their money due to their professional and family obligations, we can continue our relationship.

Our Process

Our 5-Step Financial Planning Process.

Designed to provide you with a clear and structured approach to achieving your financial goals. By following these steps, we ensure that every aspect of your financial life is carefully considered and appropriately addressed.

Please contact us through the “Contact Us” page on our website. Alternatively, you can email us at [email protected] or send a WhatsApp message to +91 6361835871.

Once we identify a mutually convenient time, we will schedule a Google Meeting. This meeting will last no longer than 30 minutes. During this session, we will focus on understanding your requirements, introducing our Goal-Based Financial Planning Approach, and outlining the subsequent steps we will undertake.

Note – As this is an introduction meeting, we will not charge any fee for this meeting.

Once the process and fee are agreed upon, we will provide you with two documents:

Client Engagement Letter: This formal letter of engagement is required by SEBI Regulations. Please print, sign, and email us a scanned copy once you agree to the terms.

Client Questionnaire: This Excel template requires details about your current financial status, including family information, goals, assets, liabilities, income, expenses, and risk tolerance.

Additionally, please make the full payment using the provided bank or UPI details. After receiving the signed “Client Engagement Letter,” KYC documents, and the completed “Client Questionnaire,” we will schedule a 30-minute follow-up meeting to review your data and address any queries.

This process comprises three key steps: Education, Planning, and Execution.

Education (DIY Module): We provide three one-hour sessions. The first covers asset allocation and its importance. The second focuses on financial products and portfolio building. The third addresses insurance planning and tax strategies.

Planning: We then prepare a comprehensive financial plan based on your data, typically within 1-2 weeks.

Execution: Review the plan thoroughly and compile any questions. In a follow-up one-hour meeting, we will address your queries. You are responsible for implementing the plan, with our support available as needed.

We will schedule a 30-minute follow-up meeting every three months after our initial planning discussion to understand your evolving needs and address any questions or concerns. Throughout our engagement, we plan three follow-up calls specifically to support implementation-related challenges, though these are not intended for portfolio reviews.

Additionally, please feel free to reach out at any time during the year with any doubts, inquiries, or changes to your financial situation. We are here to assist you whenever needed.

Our process includes an annual review of your financial plan. However, in extraordinary circumstances such as a significant market crash or changes in your financial status, we are open to conducting a mid-year review based on actual need.

Even after delivering the financial plan, you can reach out at any time during the one-year engagement period to discuss personal finance, investing, or your financial planning.

If your financial or life situation changes and requires plan modifications, we are more than willing to hold additional sessions to accommodate these adjustments. Your evolving needs are our priority.
