So here’s the eighth book giveaway on Capital Advisor.

I generally try and do one book giveaway each month and I hope you’re enjoying these contests as much as I am.

Continuing from where we left on Monday afternoon, winning the July book giveaway on Capital Advisor for a copy of the book The Behavior Gap: Simple Ways to Stop Doing Dumb Things with Money is really really simple.

All that you need to do is –

Tell me what’s the one extremely-funnily-named financial product that you have come across this far (you need not necessarily have invested in it). You also get bonus points for adding your own punch line to that name.

To participate, simply leave your response as a comment below. And don’t forget to leave your email address.

I’ll pick a winner about a week from today. Thanks in advance for participating.

There are quite a few of them but at this time Jeevan Suraksha comes to my mind. Its an pension plan from LIC. If the investor keeps investing in this fund by the time of retirement the pension amount he will receive would be in peanuts. Right word for this policy should be Jeevan Khatra.

@Rakesh –
