Tanishq launches Glam Gold 2011 Collection 

Glam Gold Collection draws strong inspiration from regional crafts and is designed keeping in mind the demand for variations in gold jewelry. That said, Glam Gold 2011 Collection is inspired by traditional Nakkashi technique of Tamil Nadu & elaborate Rajasthani kundan & enameling and fuses them together in a contemporary manner. A zone in the store is dedicated to the Karigars of this design who will be showcasing the Nakkashi skill.

Targeting the modern-day woman who is firmly rooted to her Indian values, Glam Gold collection attempts to break the believed notion of gold jewelry being an accessory for traditional ceremonies only. The designs attempt sophistication in style, with traditional Nakkashi technique of Tamil Nadu, elaborate Rajasthani kundan & enameling engraved on gold surface in intricate floral designs. The fusion of these age old techniques in highly contemporary and chic forms, which are geometrical in nature, challenges the conservative approach taken traditionally towards handcrafted jewelry. The collection comprises of wide range of products including earrings, ear studs, bangles, pendant-earring sets and necklace sets.

Akshar Yoga: Associate - SinhasiSinhasi Consultants Pvt Ltd was established in June 2005 under the leadership of the Founder and Managing Director , Ms. Mimi Partha Sarathy and is today a highly reputed specialised and personalized financial planning , advisory and wealth management firm providing end-to-end advisory services, as well as execution services to individuals, corporate and trusts.

Today, the words financial planning, advisory and wealth management are clichéd terms and have perhaps lost their true meaning. The true essence of a financial planner or advisor is to play that vital role in “guiding” an individual through his various stages of life by primarily protecting his wealth, and then growing this wealth with a clear goal or objective through his lifetime. Therefore financial planning and advisory is not merely a “service”. It is a life- long “experience” that is shared between the advisor and the client.

This “experience” is based on fundamental pillars of trust and mutual respect. Therefore the core value systems and fundamental beliefs of the financial advisor and planner are critical for this “experience” to be valued and the objectives to be achieved.

What is also critical is the role of the financial advisor during challenging times. The recent challenging times of economic collapse and recession were an eye-opener for investors as well as advisors. Challenging times can also be emotional in nature and specific to the investor. And, such times are highly unpredictable. As a financial advisor, it is critical for us to define the role of risk played in the financial plan clearly to the investor. We must also build in contingent plans with proper asset allocation and guarantees as an essential ingredient of all plans which help carry investors through such challenging times.

It is this basic understanding of financial planning , advisory and wealth management which is the fundamental differentiator and uniqueness of Sinhasi. The strong belief systems and values inculcated at Sinhasi forms the basis of a strong and long-term relationship between Sinhasi and its clients. Our aim is to strive to make a true, and meaningful difference in each of our clients’ lives.

Today, Sinhasi is one of the top Independent Financial Advisory firms with several high profile clients and companies from various spheres of life, based in Bangalore and Mumbai. “We have always seen managing portfolios as a very serious business. By managing our clients’ monies, we become accountable for the past, present and future of each one of our clients as well as for their families and responsibilities. Therefore our commitment to the client has always been complete, and we see it as a privilege and life-long honour to manage the portfolios of our clients. Every step we take will only be in the best interest of our clients””.

We at Sinhasi consider the following as our unmatchable Key strengths and constantly strive to further better our processes and systems every day. Some of our key strengths are:

  • A sound team of experienced professionals both in advisory and operations, in whom the core values of Sinhasi are strongly instilled, and who are committed to truly adding value to each of our clients.
  • Prudent holistic financial planning, Health and Life Insurance planning, Retirement planning, Milestone-based financial planning, and Will and estate planning.
  • Expertise across asset classes such as shares, various types and classes of equity and debt mutual funds, realty funds, art funds, capital protected schemes , various portfolio management schemes and structured products, fixed income products and post office schemes and others.
  • Inclusion of correlated and non-correlated asset classes in all financial plans
  • Our Loyalty is Only to Our Clients and not to any product or institution.
  • Sound technology platform with superior portfolio reporting, both off-line and on-line.
