Sometime in early April, when the Covid-19 pandemic hit, I got a call from a close friend who was frantically speaking. It turns out, he had just lost his job. And to make matters worse, he wasn’t fully prepared for it — he didn’t have enough money in the bank.
The best I could do was connect him to one of my friends who is a financial advisor. The advisor brought some sanity into the whole process and helped my friend align his portfolio.
As the days ensued, I read plenty of such stories of people equally worried if not less. Some had their salaries delayed, some were laid off, and some were worried about their family’s security. Imagine the plight of a new-age investor who has invested in mutual funds or stocks without professional help through DIY apps.
This made us realize that there were huge underlying problems that had to be solved -
- People have realized the importance of savings, investing, insurance, emergency planning, etc. but have no idea how to go about doing that
- They want to connect to quality financial advisors but have no idea how to find them. While advisors lack a platform that solves for discoverability, helps build their brand, showcase thought leadership, and more
- Financial illiteracy is a pandemic in itself which has to be tackled head-on
