Thanks for visiting Capital Advisor. I frequently update this blog to cover various topics on personal finance such as investment strategies, financial products that you should buy and ones that you really should stay away from, financial calculators, emerging themes such as early retirement and financial independence, and much more.

So, here’s some of the “expert” unactionable advise I’ve read of late (in a personal finance magazine) –

Markets are receding, but it’s not the time to go bottom fishing. There will be enough opportunities and some!

Which opportunities? When? How much? Are you willing to place a bet on your own advice? And I thought that the “experts” thought that one wasn’t supposed to time the markets. Now, I’m confused. Should I time the markets or should I not time the markets?

The [unit linked] policy offers you good de-risking plans for lowering your risk levels near maturity.

The missing part of that sentence is — “After your money has been burnt beyond recognition and reach, for whatever little there is left of it, the policy offers you good de-risking plans for lowering your risk levels near maturity.”

And here’s the worst disclaimer of all — Our “experts” may or may not have positions based on their own advise.
