Money With Monika l How to avoid behavioural biases while investing

While neo-classical economics postulates that individuals are inherently efficient, when it comes to investing, pragmatism and logic are often overshadowed by what is referred to as behavioural biases. These biases push investors towards making errors by making them take decisions based on impulse and perception rather than factual analysis. Some common biases include loss aversion bias, personalization bias and herd mentality. Watch this episode of Money With Monika Season 3 to understand how these behavioural biases work and how one can rein them in.

Money With Monika | Funds that trade like stocks: Are ETFs right for you?

  • From 7,000 crore to 2 lakh crore - that is how the asset base of exchange-traded funds in India has grown over the last 5 years. ETFs are a kind of mutual fund, but with one big difference - as the name suggests, they are listed on exchanges and are traded like stocks. They are passive funds, i.e. they mimic an index, and a fund manager doesn't actively choose the constituent stocks. Although ETFs are traditionally cheaper than their non-listed counterparts, retail participation in this category remains subdued, although there is growing interest.

Money With Monika | Value, Growth, GARP: How to choose investment style

Warren Buffett, the famous investor, once called financial markets 'manic depressive'. He was referring to the swings periodically seen on the bourses. Buffett believes investors shouldn't be influenced by these movements, thus maintaining a perpetually long-term vision. But is this the only way to invest? Those who differ with this 'value' style, subscribe to 'growth' investing. Under this strategy, investors pick fast-growing stocks, even if the price is on the higher side. The markets provide another option - GARP (growth at reasonable price) - for those seeking a compromise between the two paths. However, picking a style becomes a bit more challenging when investing via mutual funds. Watch this episode of Money With Monika Season 3 to understand how to choose an investment style appropriate for your goals.

Coming Soon: Decoding investment styles of Mutual Funds | Money With Monika

The financial markets are in a churn. But despite some despondency, a few stocks have done comparatively well, for instance, pharma and IT. So should you invest in the stocks currently on a high, or take a more long-term view and try to find investments with a promising future? In essence, you have to choose an investment style - growth-based, value-based, or middle-of-the-road GARP (growth at reasonable price). A more challenging task is to find a mutual fund which corresponds to the style you prefer. Watch Episode 11 of Money With Monika Season 3 on October 2 to understand various investing styles and decoding those employed by MFs.
