- According to SEBI, financial planners can no longer distribute mutual funds or sell any products. Very few planners have bothered to comply with this norm making their practice illegal: Take note… take care (w.r.t. SEBI RIA Regulations) Only time will tell the fate of those who have not complied with this regulation.

- Although this move is designed to remove conflict of interest, a SEBI registered financial planner is free to transfer the mutual fund distribution business to a relative/friend.
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; where to invest; 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. I can do the talk via conferencing software, so there is no cost for your company. If you want me to travel, you need to cover my airfare (I live in Chennai)
