About Us

Akhila Muralidhar

Finance Planner and Advisor by passion, a Finance Blogger and Trainer, a former techie and Project Manager

I am a CFP CM with an investing experience of over 15 years. I was always financially-savvy from my younger days. I started investing from the day I received my third salary. With disciplined investing and frugal lifestyle, I was able to “retire” from my regular job after working for 12 years. We managed to transition easily from a double income family to a single income family.

I wanted to pursue my passion and spread financial awareness to everyone. That’s when I decided to take a formal qualification – CFP CM – which is a Gold standard and internationally recognized qualification by the global finance industry.

Apart from advising clients, friends and family, I also pursue my passion for writing on finance topics, and enjoy teaching personal finance and wealth management. I also conduct Investor Awareness Programs at corporates and housing societies.

My passion in life is to help people understand finance in a simple and easy manner, which in turn can help them take informed decisions related to money in their daily lives.

IndianFinanceDictionary was started to bring all the knowledge of finance and its terminologies exclusive to India at one place.
