The concept of behavioural finance helps us recognize our natural biases that lead us to making illogical and often irrational decisions when it comes to investments and finances. A prime example of this is the concept of prospect theory, which is the idea that as humans, our emotional response to perceived losses is different than to that of perceived gains. According to prospect theory, losses for an investor feel twice as painful as gains feel good. Some investors worry more about the marginal percentage change in their wealth than they do about the amount of their wealth. This thought process is backwards and can cause investors to fixate on the wrong issues.

Beneficiaries – Does your will mention all the beneficiaries of your estate?

In the last four years, the government’s efforts to widen the tax base resulted in an 80% jump in the number of returns filed to 6.85 crore in 2017-18 from 3.31 crore in 2013-14. Data released by the income tax department showed a massive gap between the salaried whose taxes are deducted and the non-salaried. Rajesh, a client of ours, was unhappy with the Budget 2018 when the finance minister raised standard deduction to ₹40,000 and that too in lieu of travel allowance. He felt worse when he read about some professionals who probably earned three times his income and yet do not pay tax. “Does the government even listen to us? We are the most honest taxpayers and our salaries are deducted at source. What benefits do we get?" he asked. This is when we decided to tell him about the benefits available to salaried employees in the corporate sector.
