Below is the verbatim transcript of Roongta’s interview with CNBC-TV18. 

Q: Markets are volatile right now; investors are scared to invest in equities especially after the carnage that some midcap stocks saw and the big blowups without any intimation. How should one design his/her portfolio so that at least the basic principal is protected and at the same time he can benefit from investing in equities?

A: Any of the recommendations that financial planners make, they keep using the words ‘diversification’ and ‘asset allocation’. So, the idea irrespective of how good a particular investment looks at any given point in time; do not put all money into one avenue.

Let me explain the benefits of asset allocation with an example. Take a case of an investor who has about Rs 1 lakh to invest for five year tenure and he has given a clear mandate that he do not mind low returns because he is a safe investor by nature. He does not want higher returns but want his capital protected. So, the first obvious thing that he can think of is that he puts entire Rs 1 lakh into fixed deposit with a bank, earns about 9 percent returns on it. So, the value after five years would be about Rs 153,000.
