The Monday Roundup – 10th Aug 2015

Each Monday, a roundup post is published with three or four segments:

(1) a list of posts published the week before, just in case you were unable to read them last week

(2) a short note on a physics fact.

(3) short notes or links to financial stuff I read last week. I read very little, but would like to force myself at least for the roundup post.

(4) a short list of posts from the archive for the benefit of new readers.

The week that was …

#> An update to help users account for mid financial year interest rate change in 2011

#>Calculating returns by including dividends has often been a confusing topic. A illustration that might help

#> Use the worksheet created by Dr. Uma Shashikant in her workshop to access your financial life

#> A step-by=step guide to calculate asset allocation for a financial goal

#> A list of insurance comparison portals which do no require your real email and mobile number. Thanks to readers for their contributions.

#> A look at online privacy and why it is important to read terms and conditions

#>An instinctive post on my learnings from the FB group, AIFW.

#> Ways to be secure online without compromising on convenience.

Want to conduct a sales-free "basics of money management" session in your office?
I conduct free seminars to employees or societies. Only the very basics and getting-started steps are discussed (no scary math):For example: How to define financial goals, how to save tax with a clear goal in mind; How to use a credit card for maximum benefit; When to buy a house; How to start investing; how to invest for and after retirement etc. depending on the audience. If you are interested, you can contact me: freefincal [at] Gmail [dot] com. You need to only cover my travel fare for the session.
