Tell me Your Financial Problems, Questions & Concerns. I want to write more about Your problems & Help You with solutions.

In recent times, I have been making conscious efforts to write more on topics which are useful for readers and not just for me. And I get numerous mails from readers asking me to help them out with following issues:
  • How (& why) to switch from safe FDs to Mutual funds?
  • How to get rid of complex insurance products and what to do next?
  • What is the best combination of safe savings (FDs, NSCs) and risky investments (Stocks, MFs)?
  • Should I buy a house or continue staying on rent?
  • Should I invest in MF when my time horizon is less than 5 years or even 3 years?
  • I have just started earning. How should I manage my cashflows?
  • Should I pay my loans and invest simultaneously?
  • Why do I end up with no money at the end of every month?
  • How to rationalize my portfolio of 30+ mutual fund schemes!
And that’s not all. I even get questions like these:

Now its really tough to reply to each one of these mails individually. There are just too many and each and every one requires, a lot more information about the individual’s finances, before anything can be said.
So I have decided to do something, which is better for all of us.
I am floating a small survey, where you can share your financial problems / questions / confusions. I will then collate all these points and start writing about as many of them as possible.
This will serve two purposes:
  • I will do the research and try to come up with a solution to the problem. I will do a post about the issue. It will help me, as well as you in getting a different perspective (if not the final solution).
  • Once the post is published, the approach can be questioned / debated and streamlined basis feedbacks and comments received from other readers.
So go ahead and click the button below. Don’t worry…it’s a short 2-5 minute survey. And it will also help you in gauging your financial fitness.

Note – You can choose not to disclose your identity if you feel like.
If the survey does not open on clicking the button above, please click here.

I plan to write on all the topics which I can gather from the requests I receive. So please share as many queries and questions as possible.

Stable Investor Turns Two

Stable Investor has turned two. But frankly speaking, it seems a lot more than just two years. 🙂 Before Stable Investor came into existence, I used to write about stock markets on an ad-hoc basis on my personal blog. But Stable Investor has now turned that interest into something more special for me. I would be honest with you guys. I could have continued or discontinued writing during the last 2 years. But when I saw people taking part in discussions about what I wrote, it gave me a big high and a renewed motivation to continue working on the site. 

I clearly remember that when the site had turned 1, I did a special post thanking everyone. At that time, SI had close to 100 email subscribers and around 475 fans on FB page. As of today, the number of email subscribers has risen to almost 1000 and fans have also exceeded 1000. Though these may not be big numbers, for me, these numbers, your comments and reactions on FB page provide an assurance that there are atleast a few dedicated long term investors, who are reading and listening. And that in itself is something very special for me.
 
And to help me improve Stable Investor, I request you to spare just two minutes of your precious time and fill out a survey of 6 simple questions. You won’t get any prizes, but your answers to these questions would help me improve Stable Investor.
 
So, click on the red button below to launch the 2-minute survey:
 
Thanks.
