Portfolio Counsel

Ref: 10-PC-001 of 16th January, 2010

Dear Reader,

Many thanks for patronizing my blog – Financial Wisdom by Kalidas http://anilselarka.com

I have been getting lot of requests for the portfolio restructuring or solution. It is very time consuming process. My article of “Restructuring of Portfolio” along with Excel spread sheet is self tutored exercise. However, the reader reports that it does not help them about the stocks in question for the reason that they have bought it either on impulse or on advice from tipsters, reading newspapers, watching business channels or simply hearing from some friends.

I have therefore decided to offer paid services for portfolio solution. It could be existing troubled portfolio requiring restructuring or simply a newly structured portfolio based on reader’s needs. It is not limited to a particular country or stock. It also includes bonds, bank deposits, postal savings, properties and precious metals. It is a global solution. It could also involve family advice, division or business. The portfolio includes any kind of assets, business or family matters. (I get many calls asking me to help the readers solve their personal family problems or business troubles,)

Please note that this is purely a friendly advice – not fully functional professional advice you may get from your Investment adviser, bank, broker, lawyer or Social Counselor. Use this simple yet exhaustive advice as preliminary advice and then seek the opinion of your brokers or professional adviser. My approach is Macro, based on common sense, not drilled down to micro level or every data a company may have published or details provided by you. There will be no technical analysis. In short, it is a simple heart to heart solution rarely found anywhere.

Many readers have exhorted this Author to start fee based services. However, overall services still remain free. This paid service comes into play when one wants to narrow down to specifics.

It takes lot of time to analyze each product; many of them may not be on my watch list. On an average, it takes about 45 minutes for each unknown stocks or product to analyze. This paid service just pays for my enormous time that I devote to your portfolio at your specific request. This is made to order solution.

Following is the broad structure of this paid service. Use the following structure as basic guide. Specific structure will differ depending on the needs of the reader.
