Getting some insights into the investment world with fun.

Book name: Corporate Atyachaar

Considering this is the first novel of the author , the book is a neat job  done.

The novel is about the journey of a fresher joining  a wealth management firm . The author humorously brings about the transition of a student from university to a real world where things are not as rosy as it looks. The typical nature of an Indian boss is clearly brought about in a funny way although you may feel that the "scratching" part is a bit overdone by repetition.

The novel also gives a good insight into the lifestyles of HNIs, different approach  of individuals while handling their investments and how tough it is for a wealth/ portfolio manager to deal  with the clients during a stock market downturn.

There are subtle and indirect lessons on personal finance which the author has intelligently tried to drive through  various incidents and conversations. To talk about a few, 
a. Should we invest in NFO? ( Commissions, gifts rolled out to agents, kick backs and trail commissions may be a revelation to many )
b. Are sectoral funds a good best to invest in.
c. The need for asset allocation.
d. The world of debt, FMP ,etc.
e.  Understanding equity investments are really for the medium , long term and for those who have a strong stomach for short term notional value erosion.
f. Term insurance vs Ulips and much more!

Overall the journey of the fresher is interesting and should be a good read for youngsters , B school students and those who would like a peek into the world of investments.
