“I did not know Hemant until I stumbled upon tflguide. It turned out to be a happy and deeply satisfying stumble.
I am a 45 year old Non-Resident Indian currently based in Singapore. All my investments were in local products and a chunk of my earning going to pay premiums in whole-life and universal-life policies. I had some cash and wanted to get started in India and that’s why I commenced my search for an Independent Financial Advisor in India, discovered his website, liked the range of topics and clarity of thought in the articles and requested him to advise me.
Hemant in his own polite way shattered my nice little illusory world. My investments in Zurich and Friends Provident were never going to get me to my destination. My premiums in universal life policies were a real, heavy drag. He explained how. Concerned, I requested him to help chalk out Financial Plan for me. There were various drafts, revisions and a constant give and take. Through online tests he understood my risk profile and preferences. All that went into the Financial Plan.
I now have a much clearer view of what I am doing and why and how I am to meet my medium and long term goals. I have started tidying up my clutter/ mess in Singapore and have a clear strategy for investments in India. His financial coaching has helped. I am now reading more and more books about investment and personal finance. Have been asking him questions which he has been patiently replying and providing counterpoints to.
His office chipped in too. Vinod helped me trace some old investments in India. Vikas volunteered to get me a new PAN Card (I lost the old one) and helped me put all documentation in place. In what was a surprise, Hemant disclosed what was in for his firm should I choose him to help me with investments.
It is always enriching to talk to someone who tells you what needs to be told, is willing to work hard to come up with customized solutions, never shies away from engaging you on various concepts and is there to guide you and not fleece you.
My ‘Financial Journey’ has just begun and must thank Hemant for his advice. I would categorically, unequivocally recommend him to anyone who is looking for an Independent, trustworthy and competent financial planner.
Next time I am India I look forward to grab a cup of tea or coffee with him”

“I always thought of planning my finances the smartest way, but had no expected knowledge on how to lay a road map or where to start. I heard about Hemant from one my known contacts and after reading though all his articles on TFL website and after personally speaking to him I really felt that he is the right person whom I am looking for to help me to shape and lay road map for my finances. Hemant is a true professional and a good listener and never misses an appointment, which are the most important attributes that one should have particularly in the finance field to win the trust of the clients. Hemant has taken greater care in laying road map so that I could easily reach all my goals in the available time. I was quite a lot impressed with the high level of knowledge which he possesses and the degree of command he has in his subject.
I highly recommend Hemant to anyone who wishes to shape their finances for a better tomorrow.”
