RupeeCamp – a financial education bootcamp

March 15, 2011 . Srikanth Meenakshi

Knowledge of personal finance management is an essential life skill that everyone should be equipped with. We all might not be doctors, but there is a certain amount of knowledge that we need to know about our own health and well-being. Similarly, while we all might not be accountants or investment advisors, there are certain things we absolutely must understand about managing our money.


Today, there is a gross mismatch in this regard – our formal education system is not teaching us sufficiently about personal finance, and the world of personal finance is growing more and more complicated. Newer products, newer regulations, and relentless sales pressure from every direction makes it very difficult to make proper decisions. Worse, it makes it easy to fall prey to wrong decisions and waste hard-earned money.


In this situation,  personal finance training programs are stepping in to fill the breach – by providing comprehensive financial “bootcamps” for investors about the various aspects of personal finance management.


One such training program is being offered by our good friend and personal finance blogger Ranjan Verma ( It is called RupeeCamp, and it is offered both as an online course as well as an offline training class.


The offline program begins on 9th April, and is being held in Mumbai.


Both the online and offline version promises to cover a wide range of personal finance topics:


  • Psychology of money
  • Asset allocation
  • Financial planningt
  • Tax planning
  • Retirement planning
  • Loans
  • Credit cards
  • Child’s education

And much more…


It sounds very interesting, and very useful. I would urge folks to give the course a try – either online or offline.
