How to turn your savings into wealth

Profitable investing is the key to converting savings into wealth. For this, you require a clear financial plan, an understanding of various investment products — and timely action. This innovative handbook is a comprehensive guide to the entire process of wealth building and wealth management:

  • Wealth Engine highlights the risks and returns from all the popular investment classes, including equity, debt or income investments, gold, real estate, art, etc.;

  • It provides a wealth of detail about the different products available in each investment class, along with their actual, sometimes startling, historical returns.

  • Shows you how to make and implement your financial plan to get rich.

Uniquely, the book looks at the world of personal finance and investments from an Indian perspective. It provides an innovative solution for weaving together all the elements of financial planning and profitable investing into an actionable programme, including cash flow planning, asset allocation, managing your liabilities and loans, estate planning, succession management and tax planning.

Moving smoothly between a bird's eye view and a worm's eye view, the author provides a 360-degree perspective on financial planning and wealth management and shows how your personal wealth engine can make you rich.

Written by the author of the bestseller Indian Mutual Funds Handbook, this book is destined to become an investment classic.
