Of the numerous investment avenues opted by all types of investors, investing in equities, has time and again, proved to have wide-ranging benefits over other asset classes. With key advantages of liquidity, capital gains and wealth building over long-term, equity investments can be done either through direct equity or through mutual funds. With the various reform initiatives of the Indian Govt.
Supporting financial inclusion, there has been an enormous interest in equity investments. We at FYERS aim to simplify the various terms and concepts used as part of equity investing, to bring to the readers and prospective customers, an in-depth knowledge, to facilitate their learning process and aid in their equity-investing journey.

Wishing all the readers, to avail this superlative learning opportunity, at a simple click of a mouse!!!

I hope you are going to have a section for thematic investing

yashas commented on March 14th, 2019 at 9:32 PM  
Thanks for the suggestion, Anil. We would consider writing about Thematic Investing in the future. Would you like us to cover any other topics?

Anil commented on March 14th, 2019 at 9:34 PM  
It would be great if you could add the following topics:
1. Thematic
2. Fundamental analysis
3. Long term investing psychology

Thanks, Anil! Hopefully, we would be able to add valuable content regarding these topics in the coming future.
