We are a country of 130 crore people. Five years ago, in 2017, 3% of people living in India, invested in stock markets. After 5 years, with economy advancing and a pandemic, we are in 2022. Guess, How many people invest in stocks now? The same 3%.
So, What are stocks? To put it in simple words, the ownership of a company is an asset, like a piece of land. This is distributed into parts and sold or bought by people, just like you would buy a few sqft of land in a large piece of land.
So, with so many strong businesses spread across India, all 130 crore people must invest in stocks. Right?
Uh-Nuh! Sadly, That’s still not the case. Why?
Before we address that, what did we learn from the above facts?
With only 3% people still investing in stocks in India, and stocks being so easy to understand as a concept, Stock Market in India holds potential.
Not just trivial potential. Compared to matured markets in the west like USA or Europe, where majority of the population invest in stocks, Stock Market investment in India, still has 3% users onboarded.
So, if you start investing in stocks now, you still have a competitive edge, which you can retain, if you invest sustainably long-term.
Now, let’s address why, very few people in India, invest in Stock Markets. There are persistent myths around the stock market, which has been circulating for decades, not limited to the age-old adage, ‘Stock market is gambling’ and ‘Stock market is a place for rich old men that is filled with risks and rigging’.
Sun rises in the east – Universal truth. What else is a universal truth? Anyone, who can read a balance sheet and decide for themselves, can invest in stocks, and pocket decent returns.
