It is an approach to help companies, families or individuals achieve their financial goals and lead a life of fulfillment & self-respect.” The statement has been a mantra for a mechanical engineer who decided to foray into Financial Service Industry with the incorporation of Relativity Management Solutions (I) Pvt.Ltd.
Counted among the few thousands of Certified Financial Planners CFP® in India, AkashMahagaonkar describes the reason for doing so in his own words, “My love for understanding money started from school when I used to lend money to people working at my father’s factory for a minimum interest. I started with Rs. 5000 and in the third year I had Rs. 66000. This not only intrigued me but also urged me to find out why people should have financial issues when they were already earning. I started analyzing their financial behavior and thus my journey started.” Akash currently chairs as the Head of Operations & Business Development. His inquisitiveness in Finance made him become a CPA® from US and CFP® from FPSB. Though he is a B.E Mechanical Engineer by qualification, he is well known as a “Finance Specialist” for over 9 years now. He is also an eminent speaker and has been awarded & recognized for his talks/insights on Entrepreneurship & Taxation by Corporates & Professional forums.
