The stock markets are on a roll. Bech dun kya?
The Sensex and Nifty, and even Midcap and Smallcap indices have been hitting fresh highs. You track your portfolio. You are elated with huge gains. Bech dun kya? You wonder to yourself.
There is nothing wrong in booking profits if you see attractive gains in your portfolio. But, this is not an ideal approach. We at CIIS encourage you to have an ‘exit’ strategy first before you park your money with us. You don’t redeem your investments just because everyone else is doing so. Or, because you expect market correction in the coming months. Markets cannot move in one direction. It’s a cycle. It’ll go up and up and down and down. You cannot time it. What you can time, however, is your exit strategy. We tell you all about it.
How to get your exit strategy right?
Buying a stock or a mutual fund is not as difficult as deciding when to sell it. However, if you approach investments in a disciplined manner, it becomes a cakewalk. Are you aware of the most basic principle of investing? If not, then you are not alone. In fact, people who know it also ignore it. Today is your chance to learn and make the most of it. This basic principle is what defines your exit strategy. Curious? Of course, you are!
I am sure you must have heard of goal-based investing. Do you do it? Tell us in comments.
Linking a goal with your investments is the basic principle of investing. You can’t just start an SIP of Rs 5000 every month for eternity. You must have a goal in mind. This could be your imminent wedding, child’s higher education or wedding, a vacation abroad or your retirement. If you have a goal in mind, we can help you estimate exactly how much funds you need to collect to secure your goal.

We will tell you how much monthly outgo is needed. Once we have settled that, rest assured, you will meet your goal in the timeline we have set for it.
What if the stock market performs much better than what we had expected? You’ll meet your goal sooner. If you have collected the required corpus already, you exit. As simple as that. If you have not, you don’t. The markets must be staring at a correction, but your goal is still years away. Market correction shouldn’t bother you. Assume markets do correct. It will be an opportunity to buy more stocks or units at cheaper rates. When the tide turns again you will be much richer closer to your goal.
If your goal is just a year away and you are in the middle of a bull market – as we are now – you consult your advisor. You may want to exit from equities and move your funds to a safer debt mutual fund. Your exit strategy should always revolve around your goals.
Follow the basic principle of investing. Every single investment that you have done or will do should be linked with a goal. Define your exit strategy by having a clear estimation of future value of your goals. Once you get it right, the highs and lows in the market shouldn’t bother you. Collecting the future value of your life goals is your aim (and our promise). We strive towards it. We befriend market moves to achieve it.
