Reforms that India Can Bet On
The Modi government has initiated several measures to boost the present state of economy. It has announced several schemes towards the same. While some of reforms have proved to be quite worthwhile, however others have stood in the dark. Going forward, there are still many sectors that are reeling under pressures and could reap benefits with right reforms and measures by the government. We came across an article in Morningstar that shares six such concrete game-changing reform initiatives. Read them here- (Morningstar.in)

Understanding Margin of Safety

This interesting excerpt is from Benjamin Graham's The Intelligent Investor in Chapter 20. While much has been touted about this phenomenon, very few of actually understand about this concept. And there are others who give little value to this while taking their investment decisions. We came across an article on Old School Value that explains the significance of Margin of Safety in investing in quite an insightful manner. Read it here- (oldschoolvalue.com)
