The Moneyplanting Program on Financial Wellness

The Moneyplanting Program teaches everything that every working adult needs to know when it comes to investing and finances.

Owing to the high barrier of learning, the critical life-skill of investing and finances is rather hard to pick up. It’s hence easy to find individuals with little or no financial knowledge, despite having had an income for over 10 years.

This lack of adequate financial literacy means that despite being well educated, millions fall prey to bad advise, invest hastily, and commit the same financial mistakes year after year.


Why THE MONEYPLANTING PROGRAM succeeds when other programs fail

The Moneyplanting Program’s USP is in its approach, and its emphasis on story-telling.

It relies on laying a strong foundation in fundamentals. This makes understanding of more advanced topics surprisingly effortless. It also teaches step-by-step recipes, most common pitfalls, and life’s pro-tips. The highly-engaging content helps in teaching finance in a way never taught before.

What age group is the workshop for? Who can attend?

The program is designed for anyone who is keen to get a better understanding of investing and finances.

Why attend this workshop when the skill can be learn from the book ‘Smart Money Moves’?

Smart Money Moves is a great resource on financial fundamentals. But purely from a learning perspective, the human mind on an average can only remember 20% of what it reads. However, learning received from mixed-mode trainings, like that from of a live workshop, has more than a 70% recall rate. This one day workshop, due to the methods deployed, can help you gain the amount of knowledge which most working adults fail to gather, even after a decade of work life.

Why this workshop when one could learn via online courses and videos?

For one, most financial wellness and investing content online isn’t designed for India. But in order to get started, one needs to become familiar with regional investment options and the local investing landscape.

Two, online courses typically have almost a 90% drop out rate. The very fact that they can be started and completed anytime works against the idea of focussed learning. By committing to a full day, you’ll be able to ensure you truly pick up this life-critical skill.

Why ‘The Moneyplanting Program’ and not some other?

The fact that cannot be stressed enough is that there are plenty of middlemen who masquerade as financial education providers in India, since they stand to gain significantly via commissions on investments.

If you are searching for weekend of employee financial wellness programs, ensure that the focus is on fundamentals, and that there’s a significant focus on commission-free products.

What aspects does the program not teach?

– Stock picking, stock trading, shorting, short-selling and other ways to increase stress and lose money quickly.
– Any aspect of a get-rich-quick scheme.
– Advanced/convoluted way to save taxes.
