Are Disclaimer's and warnings getting robotic ???


"If necessary due to a sudden change in cabin pressure, an oxygen mask will drop from the panel above your seat.Reach up and pull the mask to your face. This action will start the flow of oxygen. Place the mask over both your mouth and nose."

We have heard above warning with demo every time we onboarded a flight. Inspite of that many pessengers on Southwest flight 1380 seemed to be erroneously using their mask.

Flight almost descended 20000 feet in 7 seconds, a women killed when she was partially blown out of a broken window not wearing her seat belt.

It is a normal human behavior that we get so habituated of warnings and disclaimer. It becomes almost robotic when you memorize it and looses it's significance.

Specially in Investment world every one of us ignore such disclaimer's as they are very lengthy and Ambiguous.But later on play blame game.

Let's today remind ourselves of 3 disclaimers which are of extreme importance in present scenerio :

1) Mutual Investment are subject to market risk.
2) Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future performance of the schemes.
3) Please consult your financial advisor to know how "Mutual fund is right (Sahi hai)" for you.

So never ever ignore fine prints in Investment. If not sure it's better to consult a professional.

"If you think financial planners are expensive, try ignorance".

Have a great weekend.
