I don’t generally write about ULIPs but once in a while it’s useful to see how bad these products have been. We wrote a long post about HDFC Crest which was being missold by bankers as if it was a fixed deposit. See: Don’t Buy HDFC Crest, It’s Not a Fixed Deposit Now there are many reasons why the ULIP is a bad product. Very little insurance Useless Guarantee High Costs (that are removed as fees in terms of number of units, thus making it non-transparent too!) Elusive Tax Benefits And Lastly Substandard returns compared to other instruments. But Just Compare Returns, No? Forget all the fees and all that. That’s highway robbery and terribly disgusting behaviour but what you can do, these are relationship managers with targets who don’t give a damn. One day, banks will be classified as brokers and we’ll get our day in court. Meanwhile, let’s see how bad the performance of a ULIP is.… (Read On…)

There comes a time in every country when you find the stock markets tanking and every regulator decides it’s their responsibility to bring the markets back up. This time it’s China. After their stock market fell 30% in less than a month, regulators have begun to see the fall as a huge problem. Even though they didn’t complain on the way up: The fall is probably a result of way too much leverage driving the markets. Chinese investors – and they are a majority, with only 3% foreign participation in mainland indexes – borrowed up the wazoo to speculate in Chinese stocks, which took the markets up huge. At one time, there was an IPO that went up 10% limit, for every single trading day for nearly two months. That’s a whopping gazillion % return (fact: Your mind turns to jelly after about 300% in two months, this is much much more.… (Read On…)

Greece has voted. But we don’t know yet what they’ve voted because the words that will echo through news channels and websites for the rest of the evening will be OXI and NAI, No and Yes respectively in what is literally Greek to us. We bring to you a Q&A in the format of a person who only cares about what happens if the vote goes one way or the other. What happens if Greece Votes Yes? Yes means this: Dear Greek Government, Get off your high horse. We will take that shitty deal. Because we don’t have any money and the banks are shut and the ATMs are dry. The pensioners are waiting in long lines and I would like nothing more than to see them back inside their houses. Oh, I don’t care at all that 50% of Youth are unemployed and the resulting austerity in this deal will keep them that way, and probably add to elderly unemployment through cuts in spending.… (Read On…)
