On 7th November, we hosted Mr. Balaji Vaidyanathan, Marketing Director, Franklin Templeton. He spoke about “Money and Millennials “. In today’s day and age where savings are the last thing on millennial’s mind, Mr. Vaidyanathan shed light on why we should not let savings be in the hindsight.
He shared that not only investments have the ability of support our long-term plans but also suffice our short-term needs. It is the chase of short-term gratification that one should not pursue, keeping in mind a bigger picture and investing systematically one can better prepare for exigencies, rising standards of living and an early retirement, he said.
Mr. Vaidyanathan also touched upon the variance among investors across different countries in terms of financial education. He shared the importance of capitalising on the three Ts – Time, Technology and Taking risks.
We would like to extend our sincere gratitude to Mr. Balaji Vaidyanathan for taking the time to address us.
