Expert financial planner NDB Wealth is focusing on encouraging women to be bold and reap rewards as it continues the long-standing tradition of celebrating International Women’s Day on 8 March.

Following the theme for International Women’s Day 2021, ‘#ChoosetoChallenge,’ NDB Wealth calls for the need to focus on the importance of challenging oneself to change the biases and pre-determined conceptions about women and focus on creating a more secure, inclusive environment for women strengthened by confidence and independence. 

“Women have advanced greatly and have resourcefully dedicated their lives to achieve independence in career and family. However we see many women still aspiring to gain financial freedom to crown their efforts. This financial freedom will not only secure their futures but also the future of their loved ones,” commented NDB Wealth Fund Manager Amaya Nagodavithane.

Amaya added, “At NDB Wealth we admire the strength and capabilities of women and truly understand their aspirations. We encourage more women to take bold steps that will empower and help them reap great benefits in the years to come.”

NDB Wealth believes that for women, financial independence and security are essentialities.  It is crucial to help women overcome the financial hurdles they face and to make them strong and equal members of their communities. Aspirations can turn real – quicker and easier, when one decides to break out of conventional bank savings products and make bold and decisive decisions through sound investments. Sound financial planning using the money market fund ‘Money Plus Fund’ similar to a savings account or the stock and bond fund, ‘Growth & Income Fund’ for attractive returns can help create the ideal allocation for women to achieve financial independence.

NDB Wealth’s Growth and Income fund, a balanced fund, which invests in stocks and bonds, is ideal for the ‘bold investor’ who has a moderate inclination towards risk. The fund allows investors to take calculated risks. Income is generated from stocks as dividends and capital gains and interest from bonds which can be withdrawn anytime without a penalty.

While the money market fund, Money Plus, for Women from NDB Wealth is an excellent account that offers a range of benefits similar to that of a fixed deposit with the added flexibility of withdrawing funds at any time without a penalty. It is also ideal for those who are too busy to keep track of their finances since the income from the account is credited daily, relieving you of that extra burden. Money Plus offers a current yield of 5.70% per annum as at 24 February. 

It’s time to make a bold move. Speak to a relationship manager and set up your Money Plus or Growth and Income fund account or visit the website to explore other investment opportunities, or even connect with NDB Wealth’s exemplary team of financial planners who can help you and your family in achieving full financial independence, with all the benefits entailed therein.
