What is Portfolio Management?

Margin Trading : Why is it a double-edged sword?

Phillip Carret once cautiously remarked - “I had a margin call in 1924, and I swore I would never buy on margin again.” But you must know there is much more in it than that.

Are Prenuptial Agreements Valid in India?

Prenuptial agreement (prenup) is a contract of European roots that is garnering its place in many other regions of the world. In its classical European philosophical sense, the contract is represented as a measure of precaution that secures the assets of both the husband and wife. In India, the concept of prenups have resurfaced time-and-again and gained popularity, such as, when Maneka Gandhi recommended the Minister of Law and Justice for the establishment of prenups as mandatory before the act of marriage. However, the legality of prenup agreements in India is a dicey road.
