Sometime in 2005, I began consulting Holistic on building a personal investment portfolio. I started with small but regular monthly SIP plans. After more than 15 years of working with Holistic, I could meet some of my very major desired long-term financial goals in life.
I used to invest sporadically and without any clear strategy in several instruments such as company stocks and debentures through the secondary market, company fixed deposits, government schemes and private equity. It was only after I began consulting with Holistic that I began to strategize seriously around such sound concepts as (1) balancing short-term and long-term financial goals, (2) asset allocation between debt and equity instruments, (3) tax efficiency, (4) power of compounding, (5) comparative assessment of MF performance, (6) staying inflation hedge (7) exit, etc.
Probably, I would have continued to invest in a haphazard manner in various investment avenues on a “hit-and- miss” or “knee-jerk” basis rather based on a logical, planned and patient strategy that balances risk and benefit, greed and prudence and immediate gains and future value.
Personal service, counsel and interaction with a full-time financial advisor assigned to me and to my account was the best part of working with Holistic. Over a period of 13 years, it was possible to develop a close and personal relationship with the assigned advisor who became like a family guide/mentor for all investment decisions.
The “trust quotient” started growing and comfort levels with the advisor began strengthening as time passed. This led to better understanding of investment capacity, real expectations of returns and investment time-horizons.
Prompt response for inquiries, timely report-back, complete handholding for all paperwork, valuable feedback regarding taxation issues, house-calls and excellent troubleshooting assistance were the other aspects of the personalized service I greatly appreciated receiving from Holistic.
If you want to invest smartly, and wish to be affected by neither “irrational market
exuberance” nor anxiety, and if you want to build long-term net-worth with neither too much greed nor conservatism as motivation, you can trust Holistic to not only show you the way but also help you walk through it.

I have been using Holistic Investment Planners for the last three years. Mr. Srinivasavaradhan answered all my questions and doubts very patiently during the first free consultation. I was able to clearly define my short-, medium- and long-term goals once I signed up for the comprehensive plan and got their investment plan suggestion to achieve my goals. They are very polite and highly professional whenever I contact them for any queries or make investments. They never pressurize you to invest on their recommended financial products. I would have been lost money by investing directly without their help since I do not have time and knowledge about different financial products. Risk planning is also done as part of financial planning. Truly, they are holistic planners when it comes to your financial planning. They help you to define your life goals, understand your financial resources and establish a plan to invest towards reaching those goals. They do review your plan as you progress to make sure that you are on correct path to achieve those goals. Kudos to the team and keep up the good work!!! I am happy that I found holistic investment planners for my financial planning and management.

I was about to retire and really not understanding how to invest money to have financial freedom and fulfilling my goals. Was desperately searching on internet way out and fortunately came across Holistic Investment Planners. I read number of articles on their website and realized that this is the agency which I want and engaged their services for my retirement planning. It is an excellent experience to be associated with Holistic. Right from day one our interaction was fantastic and they gave me such a wonderful plan that I had never imagined. I am fortunate enough to be in the client list of Holistic. I have recommended Holistic to my friends as well.

Personalized financial planning is provided keeping your short term, medium term and long term goals in mind. They do not pressurize you to purchase schemes of their choice. They provide their input and suggestions and leave the decision up to you which shows their honesty and high principle.

I have been using Holistic Investment Planners from last one year. The journey has been fantastic. Being a finance person myself I always thought we can look after and plan own finances also. However, due to lack of time and deciplain the things are not always as desired. After joining with Holistic Investment for the first time Icame to know the Financial goals and quantified them. Some dreams were unrealistic based on the earnings and savings so had a reality check. Also got the information and deciplain of investing on regular and more rewarding securities. I definetly suggest to use Holistic Investment Planners. They are professionals, available and hear youor full story before presenting plans. They are flexile in the sense if there are some urgent deviations required, they help to plan the same. For all professionals/individuals I would suggest using professional help of Holistic Investment Planners for best results in long term investment and financial goals achivements. Last advise will be to start early in your life. It really pays well to start in the beginning itself else the dreams needs to adjust :)

This is my first year service with the Holistic Team and I would say that they are very much helpful in creating a financial plan and follow ups during the year. I would definitely suggest them if anyone who is willing to proceed with their savings professionally.

I came to know about Holistic Investment Planners online while searching for different investment ideas. Once I contacted them the journey was very smooth. Mr. Ramalingam explained all the aspects of Financial planning in detail and it opened my mind. I realized how important it is to have a Financial planning. Mr. Rajan suggested all the requirements as per my goals and made a Investment plan keeping in mind of my goals. I started my Investment journey with them. I wish I had done it some years back then it would have been in a different level. Review meetings were held every six month to check the implementation of the plan and check the results as per the requirements and to check if any changes required. Overall it was a good experience with Holistic Investment team and would like to continue in the years to come.

I came across Holistic investment planners almost 5-6 years back, but I did not have the trust since I had met a few of them who did not sound promising. Then I started investing through a financial advisor of my friend. After 4 years of investing the returns were very low. I was disappointed and started looking for financial advisors when I came across Holistic investment. I had a detailed discussion about my goals and the way they would approach achieving my goal before deciding to switch my investments to them. After a thorough analysis of my then existing portfolios, they suggested new ones and we zeroed-in on 6 schemes/funds where our investment would be split. I am glad I made the decision of switching over and taking Holistic planner's advise, my returns are handsome and I only wish I could have taken their help/advise 5 years back itself. Neverthless, I would like to recommend their services for investment and financial advise if someone is serious about their investments.
