As India gears up to celebrate its 69th Independence Day, Moneycontrol launches a week-long initiative (from August 13 to 20), 'Financial Freedom', to enable Indians to take charge of their finances and achieve financial freedom.
The initiative will provide access to advice from marquee names from the industry such as Nirmal Jain, founder and chairman of India Infoline; Ajay Thakur, head BSE SME; Rashesh Shah, chairman and CEO of Edelweiss Group; S. Naren, CIO of ICICI Prudential Asset Management Company and Gaurav Mashruwala, certified financial planner. Users can interact with experts in the financial planning domain through chat sessions to get insights on cutting-edge strategies employed by experts. A quiz will help users ascertain their understanding of money matters. The initiative also has other engagements like polls and forum utility, where users can express themselves.
Rubeena Singh, COO, Moneycontrol, says, "We have conceptualised 'Financial Freedom' seeking to impart knowledge and helping each and every Indian investor take greater control of their finances and savings. With this, we hope to help more people realise their dreams, aided by the right financial know-how. We hope and believe that the first edition of 'Financial Freedom' will lay the foundation to satisfy the changing needs of the Indian investor, going forward. This will play a significant role in our larger aim of enabling financial independence for all."
The campaign will also run on social media platforms like Facebook, YouTube, LinkedIn and Twitter, where people can join the conversations using the hashtag #FinancialFreedom.
