Get Your Finances In Order

Jumping into investing without first examining your finances is like jumping into the deep end of the pool without knowing how to swim. On top of the cost of living, payments to outstanding credit card balances and loans can eat into the amount of money left to invest. Luckily, intelligent investing doesn't require a significant sum to start.

Intelligent Investing is all about planning ahead. Planning for life's future goals like child's education, marriage and your retirement can be daunting at first. But once you get hold of the basics and tread the investing path. things become simpler and smoother.

Fundamentals of Investing

You don't need to be a financial geek to start investing, but you do need to learn some basic investing terminology so that you are better equipped to make informed decisions. During the Intelligent Investing - Essential Primer, we start with understanding the differences between stocks, bonds, PPF, mutual funds and certificates of deposit (CDs). We also look at financial theories such as power of compounding, portfolio optimization, diversification and market efficiency.

Intelligent Investing is all about never loosing your money. You must have heard of many stock trading schemes offering 100-200% returns in a couple of months. Remember that for such returns, somebody at the other end has to make those loses. On the other hand, investing is all about preserving the real-value of underlying investment and making gains on the appreciation of the underlying asset.

Investing in FDs

Fixed deposits are for “parking” money safely. They keep your money relatively safe from volatility and default risk but don’t take you anywhere. For Intelligent Investing - FDs should only be considered for very brief amounts of uncertain times.

Warren Buffett (like many other investors) knows that with a “little more effort” he’ll be able to compound his capital at a much higher rate than any fixed deposit provider. The tremendous power of compounding actually works against you if your post tax rate of return is lower than the rate of inflation. The “wonder” becomes the “horror”!

In a Nutshell - Investing into Fixed deposits are for those that can't or haven't found any investment opportunities.

Investing through PPF

The Public Provident Fund is a savings-cum-tax-saving instrument in India, introduced by the National Savings Institute of the Ministry of Finance in 1968. The aim of the scheme was to mobilize small savings by offering an investment with reasonable returns combined with income tax benefits. The scheme is fully guaranteed by the Central Government. Balance in PPF account is not subject to attachment under any order or decree of court.

PPF and Fixed Deposits don't differ much on their investment yields. Though PPF is better in terms of tax-status, still the returns are barely able to meet inflation. This simply means that if you invest 100 into PPF today, the inflation would be much higher than absolute PPF returns, thus washing away the worth of your capital.

And here at Catalyst we believe that Intelligent Investing is all about never loosing your money.

Investing in GOLD

Of all the precious metals, gold is the most popular as an investment. Investors generally buy gold as a way of diversifying risk, especially through the use of futures contracts and derivatives. The gold market is subject to speculation and volatility as are other markets.

Gold, Cash and Inflation

In the early 1970s, one ounce of gold equaled $35. Let's say that at that time, you had a choice of either holding an ounce of gold or simply keeping the $35. Both would buy you the same things at that, like a brand new business suit, for example. If you had an ounce of gold today and converted it for today\'s prices, it would still be enough to buy a brand new suit. The same, however, could not be said for the $35. In short, you would have lost a substantial amount of your wealth if you decided to hold the $35 and you would have preserved it if you decided to hold on to the one ounce of gold because the value of gold has increased, while the value of a dollar has been eroded by inflation.

In a Nutshell - Investing into Gold is only as good a buying yourself a suit now or that same suit in the future. In case you want to buy 2 suits then you might have to look at investing in businesses that have the right potential.

The Power Of Compounding

Albert Einstein called compound interest "the greatest mathematical discovery of all time". We think this is true partly because, unlike the trigonometry or calculus you studied back in high school, compounding can be applied to everyday life.

Compounding is the process of generating earnings on an asset's reinvested earnings. For compounding to make an impact, it requires 2 things: time and the re-investment of earnings. The more time you give your investments, the more you are able to accelerate the income potential of your original investment. The power of compounding is the foundation stone for investing and if used wisely can take the earning pressure off of you.

And here at Catalyst we emphasize that when you invest, always keep in mind that compounding amplifies the growth of your working money. Just like investing maximizes your earning potential, compounding maximizes the earning potential of your investment.
