Comprehensive Investment Philosophy..!

''While some might mistakenly consider value investing a mechanical tool for identifying bargains, it is actually a comprehensive investment philosophy that emphasizes the need to perform in-depth fundamental analysis, pursue long-term investment results, limit risk, and resist crowd psychology." - Mr. Seth Klarman


Married Couples Work with Together: Best Practical Tips..!

 Married couples find it extremely difficult to strike a balance when they work at the same place.

Here are ways you can strengthen your bond..!.

The advantages of married couples working together often go unnoticed, since many assume it is a bad idea for couples to work in the same office.

Dr. Sanjoy Mukerji, Marriage counsellor, said, "Usually, it increases the complexity of potential issues in your relationship & eliminates the chances to cool down after spats. It may even, on a professional level, create conflicts of interest in certain situations, especially if the two of you work in the same department or if one is the superior of the other."

Keeping your personal feelings and situations separate from work often becomes a challenge. It can be very tricky navigating back and forth from the spousal relationship to the professional one.

However, in spite of these conflicts, there are many couples who successfully work together & share the same passion & complement each other well.

Though you can not tend to overlook the cons of working together, there are ways you can maintain peace and harmony at work and not bring it back home with you.

Do not interfere in each other's work..!

Just because you are married that does not entitle you to always know what your spouse is doing, especially in office.

For example, if your partner has a problem with a co-worker, just stay out of that. You do not have to offer advice either to your wife / husband or the co - worker. Let him / her handle the situation.

Give Some Space..!

Space is crucial in every relationship. It is more like a time off that you take from one another that helps you bond better. When you work together, you are bound to have the same set of colleagues, so it is advisable for you to make new friends from other departments too, who you can hang out with during the lunch break.

Not only is it good for you career wise; it will also nurture professional relationships with others. You don't ideally have to do everything together.

Avoid forming your exclusive 'spouse society'!

Keep personal issues at bay.!

If you had had a fight at house, try not to bring it to work. Also, refrain from discussing about your fights or / arguments with your colleagues. Since both of you work at the same place, it can hamper your spouse's image at work.

Be professional..!

When at work, do not indulge in personal talks about family or otherwise. Also, it is equally important to maintain a professional and courteous tone with your spouse at work. Do not indulge in emotional reactions or even PDA. Further, save the pet names for after hours!

If you and your spouse co-own a business...!

Owning a business together is like raising a child. In addition to moments of happiness, joy & pride are there will be long hours, trying times and instances where you would not agree with each other.

^^  It is important to communicate well with your spouse. There will be times when you would not agree with each other on something, but it is essential to talk to your partner with respect and listen to him / her properly.

 ^^  Even though you might not share the same opinion, support his / her decision. It is better to present a united stand, when in front of others. You can always discuss the issue, later in private.

^^  Remember that your employees are always observing both of you. Any personal conflicts at work might be blown out of proportion by your employees and both of you are likely to become the object of gossip.

^^  No matter the work load, make plans & spend some time alone. Try not to indulge in professional talks. This will help strengthen your relationship.

India’s Retail Sector : Delhi NCR

 by JLL India..!

With vacancy rates in performing malls in single digits & retailers favouring expansion in projects offering optimal value, leasing activity was sluggish across the Delhi-NCR (National Capital Region) retail market in 2Q 2012.

Retailers are also pre-committing to space in upcoming retail projects that offer a good location, design, branding & business potential. Demand originated primarily from clothing &  accessories brands, food and beverage retailers, and electronic equipment vendors.

Absorption volumes saw a 69 per cent drop from the previous quarter, with net take-up at 1,70,985 square fet, of which two thirds was in select existing projects in the Suburbs sub-market.

Overall, vacancy rates dropped to 24.7 per cent, a 0.60% drop q-o-q. With existing stock in the Prime South sub-market constrained by low vacancy rates, notable leases included those by Roberto Cavalli and Van Laack, which leased 3,000 square feet and 1,500 square feet respectively, in Emporio; Dunkin’ Donuts, which opened its first store in India, leasing
1,000 square feet in DLF Courtyard in Saket; and Mamagoto, a Japanese restaurant, which leased 3,000 sq ft in DLF Promenade in Vasant Kunj. Leases in the Prime Others sub-market included Haldiram’s take-up of 6,000 square feet in Pacific Mall, Subhash Nagar, as well as
numerous other leases.

Notable leases in the Suburbs sub-market were Reliance Digital’s lease of 25,000 square feet in Raheja Mall, Lemp Brew & Kitchen’s lease of 10,292 square feet in DLF Star Mall and Fabindia’s
lease of 8,500 square feet in MGF Plaza, all in the Gurgaon precinct.

New supply was limited to one completion in the Prime Others submarket, with the retail component on the Delhi Metro Airport Express - Shivaji Stadium transit point (60,310 square feet) becoming operational at 35 to 40 per cent occupancy.

Overall, rents remained stagnant as retailers resisted increases and large retailers enjoyed having an upper hand in commercial negotiations. Capital values showed a slight increase in the Prime South sub-market but remained stagnant in other sub-markets.

Overall, capital values showed a q-o-q increase of less than 1 per cent, while yields compressed by 0.1% for the first time in nine quarters.

On-going government discussions about FDI in multi-brand retailing may lead to some positive developments that are expected to spur the entry of large-format global retailers. Malls that are forecast to become operational will see leasing activity based selectively on location and
demographic profile. The Prime South sub-market will continue to see interest from retailers and an active churn in existing stock may push rents up. Select upcoming developments in the Prime Others & Suburbs sub-markets are expected to generate healthy demand based on current pre-commitment levels.

Supply rationalisation may result in an easing of the downward pressure on rents, although rental growth is forecast to remain range-bound.

Delhi is India’s political & administrative capital, and is also the country’s second-largest metropolitan city. With a mixed population of the traditional wealthy and the middle class combined with the upwardly mobile employed across various industries, there are healthy residential catchment areas for luxury as well as specialty and mass retailing formats.

With healthy population levels across the Prime City sub-markets & well-settled areas in the surrounding locations, organised retail formats have flourished over the past decade.

Suburban cities look set to see a larger share of future retail developments as they become home to an increasingly large population that will fuel demand for these
formats across multiple locations in the suburbs
