I Had No One Else To Follow: An Account Blow-by-Blow

Lovaii Navlakhi
Founder & CEO, International Money Matters Pvt. Ltd
April 21, 2020

Reading Time: 2 minutes The world doesn’t want any one of us to think smaller, the world needs all of us to dream bigger, to be bolder and figure out what make us feel excited and accomplished. Genuinely playing the professional role of a financial advisor requires a hefty amount of vision, self-belief, education and experience. As long as we stick to our paths with an honest mind-set, we can withstand tough phases, open up opportunities and make headway.

Being innovative and different is often a boon, and hence today, we present Think Tank to you a little differently. Mr.Lovaii Navlakhi displays his poetic streak as he talks about career path vis-a-vis his personality and passion. He tells us how he shaped up his financial advisory practice and adapted to changes by keeping “client’s interest first” under the spotlight.

Why is ethics the corner stone of financial advisory business

Jimmy Patel
MD & CEO, Quantum Asset Management Co. Pvt. Ltd.
December 24, 2019

Reading Time: 4 minutes We all know that to reach our destination of attaining professional success and to scale new heights, morality and ethics are as important as the hard work being put in, if not more. However, how often do we find ourselves or some others in our field getting lost along the way? While sometimes its a attitude change, some other times we just do not get the time to keep our actions within the lane of 100% ethical advice. This is where we need to whip out the moral compass and introspect if what we are doing is coinciding with what we want to be. This week’s piece by Jimmy A. Patel will help us remember why we are in this field and what it takes to keep walking down the correct path.
