Kenneth Andrade Shares A Trend @KotakSecurities #KotakMidCapMeet15


wealthymattersKenneth Andrade holds that India is transiting from a high to low interest rate economy.

This confirms my belief since late 2007.

This interests all those of us on a long term, multi-decadal/ multi-generational wealth-building journey.

We need to focus on locking in prevailing higher rates on fixed income instruments for as long as possible. Or construct such instruments for ourselves.

There will be spikes in interest rates in future, but at the end of each cycle, interest rates will keep trending lower.

Kenneth Andrade On Investing In Infrastructure @KotakSecurities #KotakMidCapMeet15

India has much infrastructure, but its of poor quality. Eg we have the highest density of roads in the world, but of poor quality.

The power sector in India is different from anywhere else in the world, due to the high consumption of power in the agriculture sector. (Insert free power and read between the lines.)

The real area to invest and grow wealth is in infrastructure maintenance.
