The Art of Risk Management- How to Thrive in an Uncertain Economy?

The economy is slowing down.

It is not a recession but the economy has lost its sheen.

The stock market is uncertain.

Are we heading into a recession?


In every 2-5years, we come across such grim news. Even if we overlook the rumors regarding financial emergency which usually spread like wildfire, we cannot outrightly deny the probability of an uncertain economy. Evidently, it makes many of us worried.


How can I move money to safer avenues?

Would I lose my investment?

Should I reduce holdings in stocks?


Rising uncertainty can confuse even financial gurus let alone common investors. However, we all know that getting worried is not going to pull you out of troubled waters. Rather than panicking when an uncertain economy may actually take a toll on your finances in the future, you should better cover all the bases. Smartness lies in currently safeguarding your finances for the upcoming years.

At this point, we can learn valuable financial lessons from the life of famous Chef Ranveer Brar. Yes, the happy-go-lucky chef who has won millions of fans over the years. However, life has not always been blissful to him. Ranveer Brar has experienced his share of financial crisis when the recession hit and Banq (owned by the chef), a fine Franco-Asian restaurant in Boston which was hailed as the best new restaurant in the world, shut down. Needless to say, this pushed Ranveer into deep financial meltdown with a huge outstanding loan that had to be repaid. In his lifetime, the celebrity chef has many setbacks but he has always bounced back. HOW? Due to saving and investments, he managed to get when he was enjoying the successful phase of his life. 

“Not taking a risk is the biggest risk of all.” A lesson we can learn from Ranveer’s life. No matter how big or small the financial crisis was, it couldn’t stop him from chasing his passion for cooking. When you are protected, it becomes easier to achieve life goals as Ranveer did.

We want you to achieve all the goals you have planned and live life to the fullest. So, for a better future for you and your family, say #HelloLife with Aviva and go through the following alternatives that can help you thrive in an uncertain economy.
