In a country where the individual has to finance her life after retirement fully with no societal support like Social Security or Healthcare, a habit of saving through one’s working life, sensible investment with minimal risk and maximum returns is needed. YouTube Channels on Financial Planning, though hosted by amateurs, have followers numbering in the tens of thousands.

This session will provide the basic concepts that determine good practice in building one’s retirement corpus, different instruments for investment, risk return evaluation as well as prudent estate planning from a leading expert in the field.
