At the recently concluded 6th Bangalore DIY Investor Workshop, I talked about various aspects of risk in personal finance. The video and slide deck are published in this post.

P V Subramanyam, CA, author (retire rich) and blogger(subramoney.com) spoke on retirement planning to a group of about 50 people last year (May 29th 2015) at Chennai. Here are the videos (a re-post).

Here is a 7-minute video that discusses the differences and similarities between the two types of annualized returns: the Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) and the extended internal rate of return (XIRR).
