Financial Express - Investment strategies for your Appraisal money in 2022y

After facing job loss and salary cuts during the pandemic period, it’s time for a salary hike. Following a steady normalisation of the COVID-19 situation – after the withdrawal of salary cuts and improvement in job market – companies are giving due appraisals to their employees again. “One of the best moments in the life of a salaried employee is when he gets a salary hike. Normally, the younger generation likes to celebrate the occasion with their friends. Nothing wrong with getting momentary gratification for a year of hard work, but it is always prudent to rejig your investment portfolio with every increment,” said Vijay Singhania, Chairman, TradeSmart.

The Economic Times - Traders Guide by Vijay Singhania: How to identify low-risk trading strategies?

Professional traders monitor two ratios very closely to track their performance. One is the Win to Loss ratio and secondly, the Average Win to Average Loss ratio. The tracking is done on every strategy they trade. There are some strategies, like momentum strategies, which have a relatively higher win-loss ratio and a high average win to average loss ratio. Trend following trading strategies, on the other hand, have more losses than wins but a much higher average win to average average win to average loss. One cannot trade both strategies with the same amount of rupee risk. Trading the trend-following system with the same risk per trade as a momentum strategy would wipe out the trader’s account faster.

ET Realty - Vijay Singhania on Fundraising via REITs, InvITs slumps 59% to Rs 22,145-crore in FY22

Fundraising through emerging investment instruments -- REITs and InvITs -- plunged 59 per cent to Rs 22,145 crore in 2021-22 primarily on account of uncertainty around the world and volatility in the stock market. In comparison, Rs 54,731 crore was raised in 2020-21. Prior to that, Rs 11,496 crore was mobilised through these avenues in 2019-20, data with the Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) showed. Vijay Singhania, Chairman, TradeSmart is of the view that money should be raised when it is easily available and not when you need it. Fiscal year 2020-21 saw world economies floating in money with negative interest rates in advanced countries.Taking advantage of this scenario, REITs and InvITs raised Rs 54,761 crore. "But as interest started rising and investors had other avenues to park their funds, these investment trusts decided to slow down on their fundraising plan and raised only Rs 22,145 crore in FY 2021-22.Though the number of issuances increased, the ticket size was smaller as the real estate market picked up speed, leaving few opportunities for these trusts to invest in," he said.

However, investors have to bear the management fees, pay Demat fee and transaction charges on buying and selling both. Long-term investors may also have to bear high tax burden. On the other hand, there is no management fee in case of Gold Futures. Though brokerage and charges for extension of contracts have to be paid. The tax structure in futures is quite complex. For those starting their gold investment journey, Gold ETF is the ideal instrument since it’s less risky and highly liquid. For those who comprehend the nuance of gold market can opt for Gold Futures since the returns are as high as the risk. In case of Gold Futures, investor gets the opportunity to leverage. That is, even a short-of-cash investor can pay a small percentage of contract amount and place the bet. However, in case of Gold ETFs, investor has to pay the entire amount for the number of units he is buying. Gold futures are more volatile, thus end up with high returns and high losses. The rollover facility adds to the volatility. Compared to Futures, Gold ETFs are less volatile and returns are very high."

People Matters - A guide for SMEs : Experimenting with compensation components

The new era of work presents a chance for small businesses to attract and retain talent with innovative compensation packages, personalised benefits and relevant initiatives that address the evolving needs of the workforce. Small businesses will have to go a step further - they may very well have to anticipate how the employee context, priorities and preferences would evolve in the shorter and longer time horizons, and design their salary and benefits offerings that are potentially ahead of that evolution curve and impact the business growth. What are the new ways in which small businesses and fast-growing organisations can compensate, reward, recognise and retain employees? “SMEs and startups have the added advantage of saving costs with partial offline operations. The costs can be utilised to build holistic remote capabilities. Effective use of virtual tools and technology can help manage resources and be a boon for business continuity irrespective of physical boundaries," Vikas Singhania, CEO, TradeSmart, added.

News18 - Vikas Singhania on World Health Day

World Health Day, April 7, 2022 : Vikas Singhania, CEO, TradeSmart - Normally the axiom is “Health is Wealth”, but what if we flip this around and say that “Wealth can also lead to better Health”.

One of the factors that affects health is stress. According to a recent study by Statista. In 2020, financial stability was the second leading cause of stress amongst Indians. Second only to the Covid fears and its health issues. Close to 27 per cent of the respondents cited financial stability as a cause of stress.

Financial Express - Vikas Singhania, CEO, TradeSmart - As the new FY begins, it’s time for you to do your tax planning

With the beginning of the Financial Year 2022-23, the tax clock starts ticking afresh. So, you should also start your tax calculation afresh taking into consideration the changes in tax rules and enhancement prospects in your income. After calculating the estimated annual income, you should consider all the available avenues to save taxes, so that the tax outgo may be minimised. As tax-saving investments are long-term in nature and come with certain lock-in periods, you should pick up the instruments carefully, so that, apart from saving tax, such instruments should also meet your long-term financial goals. “Tax planning is an important practice to adopt once our income becomes taxable. And with adequate knowledge about the tax planning structure, we can prevent ourselves from paying unnecessary taxes and instead make suitable investments to save more and eventually achieve all our aspirational goals. There are numerous financial instruments available for this purpose,” said Vikas Singhania, CEO, TradeSmart. Singhania lists the following tax-saving investment options that one may opt for as per his/her requirements.

CNBC TV18 - Vikas Singhania, CEO, TradeSmart - 10 options for Tax saving investments

Vikas Singhania, CEO, TradeSmart says "Investments in tax-saving instruments should not be looked at in isolation; they should be part of a larger strategy and of planning our financial goals. An ideal strategy is built on adaptability and should be revised based on an individual's changing financial circumstances. Tax planning should not be an exercise to be done at the end of the financial year, but should be a continuous process. If you look at tax-planning structures and the investments that can be made under them, you will find that the structure is designed in a way that can help achieve financial goals, with the added benefit of paying lower taxes. For example, if you have a goal to accumulate funds to buy a home or for your child's future education, you actually have investments options which can help save on taxes as well. One option available is Equity Linked Saving Schemes (ELSS), which are tax-saving mutual funds. These can help build an investment corpus over the years and give tax breaks. Similarly, if you want to buy your own home, there are tax breaks available when you take a home loan."

Financial Express - Vikas Singhania, CEO, TradeSmart - Tax Loss Harvesting: What is it and how you can reduce Income Tax liability?

Investors make capital gains or losses whenever they sell their investments in stocks or mutual funds. Capital gains are taxed based on the holding period of your investment. Experts say that investors can reduce their tax liability to some extent by using the tax loss harvesting method. According to experts, tax harvesting is one of the most effective ways to reduce tax liability. “Tax-Loss Harvesting is a method by which one can reduce the tax incidence on their trading gain. The effect of tax loss harvesting is seen at the portfolio level. Suppose during a year a trader has taken many trades and is sitting on a hefty profit. At the end of the year, he will have to pay a tax on his profits, either long term (held for more than a year) or short term,” Vikas Singhania, CEO of online trading platform TradeSmart told FE Online.
