I had an amazing experience at a point in time which proved to be a turning point for me. I got an opportunity to do internship with Hedge Equities Ltd. Those two months had been a period of intense learning. We were exposed to practical scenarios. We didn’t only gain professional knowledge but we were also groomed on personal investments. Lots of misconceptions were cleared. For the first time, I could view investments from the point of social benefit rather than only personal benefit.Ever since I started earning I have started started investing in Systematic Investment Plans (SIP) as well as bought term insurance plan.Apart from this I also put my money in IPOs and individual stocks with more investments in the pharma and automobile sector.
