First of all congratulations for being loyal to Subramoney.com for the past 9 years. You must have swallowed a lot of your pride for all the taunts that had at you. At last due to a lot of public pressure, I am launching my own mutual fund, and I would love you to invest in the same. As a matter of abundant caution, I would like to keep the minimum to Rs. 500 and have no upper limit. However before you call the phone number below, I wish you read this declaration of interest, and statement of alarming incompetence, your stupidity disclosure, and the current market scenario.

  • The world markets are currently swollen with unnecessarily printed money
  • All assets are over valued – we only do not know relatively which is more over valued
  • This is an Overvalue fund and we promise to buy all assets at their overvalued state
  • The fund manager is educated at IIT and IIM of course, but we are awaiting his original certificate
  • The fund manager recently bought a house in Worli for Rs.  49 crores
  • We do not really know too much about fund manager integrity but his last drawn salary was Rs 94 lakhs
  • We are extremely competent, but the market can be irrational far longer than we are liquid
  • This just means you could lose all your money in the market. If you do, you can go to the regulator
  • We do not know of any instance where going to the regulator helped much, but hey you could try
  • Markets are volatile. JP Morgan said that about 200 years ago. Its still true.
  • If you think Berger Paints is over valued, look at Asian Paints.
  • If you think Axis Bank is overvalued, we agree with you.
  • If you think Indusind bank is over valued, sorry, but we were unable to buy Hdfc bank, so ….
  • If you think YOU deserve the Rs. 94 lakh salary that you are earning, its none of our business
  • We have an extremely competent board, fund manager and trustees.
  • We know they are competent – see the fees that we pay them
  • If you ever bought ULIPs in your life, good. We will charge you less than that
  • In a bad recession share prices will go down and then even lower.
  • Averaging in a falling market will hurt, and you might bleed real bad, be ready for that
  • Our fund managers are extremely honest, they will not make a fake voucher EVER
  • One of our fund managers was found with his hand in the cookie jar, we soon sacked him.
  • the fund manager we sacked is now abroad and runs a successful India fund
  • Successful means he has garnered a lot of money
  • Fund industry literature means American Robber baron’s history, be aware
  • We buy scary stuff. We bought Infosys at its tech boom
  • We have Hul, Nestle, LnT, Hdfc bank recently – damn it, they look so good on our PMS scheme
  • When we buy such shares, clients cannot accuse us of incompetence or corruption, right?
  • We bought Avenues supermart and funded that by selling Shoppers Stop and Cafe4 Coffee Day
  • If we go into a recession for say 4 years our fund managers will not be scared
  • Remember our fund managers get a nice salary out of the 2% twashat we charge you upfront?
  • Remember it helps if you start with a prayer

Fund has applied for a license on 1 April 2017 and we hope to get the permissions by 1st April 2020. If you have not got scared by what you have read above, I guess you must be in love with your Relationship Manager, and her life depends on you. Do drop in a mail or write in the comments column – we are going to choose the wittiest comment and reward him or her. Why, we may even make him or her our Risk head.

  1. Dear sir,

    Happy to hear about your new initiative. Your experience and knowledge are the need of the hour. I am glad that I came across your post accidentally.

    I will liquidate all my other assets and savings and submit it at your disposal at the earliest. Though I don’t know much about Mutual Funds or share market, I am interested because most of my friends and relatives are talking about them. I have full faith on you sir.

    Only problem is I can’t take out the EPF & PPF money. The idiotic SYSTEM does not allow me take out my own money as and when I wish. All those buggers didn’t tell me anything about that while joining. They said, just sign here, here and here and we will fill the rest. I BELIEVED and trusted them (Saalaa m****r ch****t). How could they do it to me when I am one of their privileged customer. I have INVESTED in most of their product’s like FD, ULIP and Insurance policies.

    I have only two small doubts.
    1. Will I be eligible for the IT rate cut?
    2. I have 5 credit cards with average limit of 1 lakh. Can I invest using them also?

    Kindly reply sir.

    Eagerly waiting for the magic,
    Water Boy

    P.S: as a goodwill gesture, I can arrange for the IIT & IIM certificates (for a fee for others). But of course you are God sent, so I will do it as a favour and will charge you only 50%. I assure you that the cerificates will look more original than the original ones. Just let me know which batch (year), which location and any specialisation required.

  2. I have read all warran buffet quote sire..as a past experience..i got very high portfolio also. Like I got dabur because i like chavanaprash..hdfc because i like their online interface..hpcl because petrol is evergreen business..and axis because they were the only guys who trusted me with a credit card. My current portfolio is up 102% from 2013-2014…so trust me maybe..i know what I am doing…i guess? Please accept my application for your esteemed organization.

  3. I really like your analysis which is full of sarcasm. I follow your blog, your facebook and twitter. However, I fail to understand one thing. One on side, you write such scary blog posts like this one and on the other you publish a book in which you most certainly state (‘guarantee’) that you invest Rs. 40 per day for long and you will retire rich.

    So that Rs. 40/ day will go to these same fund houses no ?

    Confusing.

    Would really appreciate your reply.

  4. 1) Is the 94 Lac per month?
    2) If so, how can I become a fund manager? (I can fund my own IIT/IIM certificates 😉)
    Rgds

  5. Karan if you think I guarantee returns and that guarantee is worth anything (even if I do) you need to read much more.

    U need to learn, if u think u can invest Rs. 40 a day in one fund and go off to sleep like Rip van Winkle, think again.
