Yes, its time to celebrate. Our TFL is now a three year old kid. We call it a kid because it has just started and there are lot many things The Financial Literates(TFL) have to do.
As a famous quote of Warren Buffet goes, “An investor has to do very little things right as long as he/she avoids big mistakes.” So our focus in last 3 years was mainly to let you know what all you should not do. TFL educated more on “What not to do” and “how to avoid large – scale mis-selling that is taking place” and our very first article was on “Mis-selling Month”. Yes July 2009 was a mis-selling month when Mutual Fund industry came up with maximum NFOs and distributors asked investors to invest all that they can invest within that month as from the month of August “No Load” regime came.
