This programme is path breaking, since this will be first programme that will educate the students on the importance of financial planning.
Prof. Balaji Rao D.G, Associate Dean – ARG, Jain College said, “We have become victims of our upbringing. Our parents, friends, relatives perpetuate the belief, that financial matters are too serious for youngsters. I strongly believe that youth must start saving young; it will make a big difference in their lives.”
“You need to keep yourselves educated on the various basic ideas like having a bank account, making sure you have a PAN card and AADHAR card, these are just some of the few things needed to help you understand the world of finance, and help you to take baby steps in the world of investments”
The programme also touched upon various kinds of investment that students could make using their pocket money/living expenses. The speakers also elucidated how company shares of organisations like Asian Paints, Apollo Hospitals, and Bharati India had grown through the years, and has given profit to the many who had invested. Prof. Balaji pointed out that similarly such an effect can be achieved if one invests in the right companies, at a young age. He also said that one must invest in multiple ways gold, real estate, equity funds are all ways to make one’s wealth grow.
