Investing without a realistic goal

It is destructive. Set realistic goals that are measurable and achievable through available investment options and invest accordingly. Do not plan your goals with speculative tools.

Trying to time the market

This could cost you heavily. Do not try to time the market you will end up wasting your valuable time, energy, and money. Time in the market is more valuable than trying to time the market. Understand and reap the benefit of compounding. Always invest with a long-term perspective. Invest regularly and systematically.

Trying to create overnight wealth in the market

It is a myth. Investing by nature is a long-term process. When it comes to investing, time is important. Ideally, you should hold investments for as long as you can to maximize your returns according to the goal. Plan your goals.

Over diversification

It is never-ending. Diversification is good for your portfolio but only in moderation. Take expert advice.

Investing directed by emotions

Hold yourself back. Rebalancing periodically is the best way to stay on track with your plan and achieve the best risk-adjusted returns over time.

Lack of financial discipline

It is an enemy. To create long-term sustainable wealth, invest periodically & consistently.

Lack of awareness

It is hurting you. To make financially conscious & prudent investment decisions we need knowledge and the right advice.

Copying others’ portfolios

It is not advisable. Adopt the investment philosophy, not the portfolio. Your desires and your goals are specifically yours and so should be your plans to achieve them.  Get a customized investment strategy.

Blindly following anybody’s advice

It is no good for you. Consult an expert. Do not take investment decisions based on advice from people who do not know your personal financial situation and goals.
