Overview

Wealth creation doesn’t happen overnight, it takes years of compounding to do that. In that case, what should be the right age to invest? Or yet, what should be your choice of investment? 

Our guest Vinita Idnani, partner at Capital League and a senior ex-banker at HSBC Bank demystifies the concept of investing and financial planning for our viewers. 

Vinita left a senior position at HSBC bank to start something of her own. She is now a partner at Capital League, an all-woman wealth management firm with a team of 17 brilliant financial leaders who create and help people with their financial needs. 

In the interview, Vinita talks about the right age at which one must start investing to secure their future. She opines that the power of compounding can only be enjoyed if one starts to invest as early as possible in one’s career. She answers the golden question, equity or mutual funds? Vinita advocates that one must choose the right investment for themselves and stick to it. She shares how a mix of several types of investments that are best suited for an individual must do the work. 

In the next segment, Vinita shares in detail how senior people must plan their future. Since the life expectancies have increased, securing one’s old age must be everyone’s number one priority. Vinita talks about how older people tend to invest in assets rather than monetary investments and by the time they retire, they become “asset-rich and cash poor.” She opines against that and shares how older people must also invest in something that has a better liquidity rate. 

Vinita also volunteers in Delhi at Can Support, an organization that helps people who have cancer. She is a great community supporter and shares how empathy and compassion are her greatest values.
