As shared by Col. Rakesh Goyal himself, ” Definitely the years I spent in the service of the nation were most satisfying and fulfilling for me. Sitting in remote border areas, sometimes without internet or even telephone we are isolated from the world. Though physically absent, I felt I should be capable of continuously working towards securing my family financially by making correct financial decisions for my growing children and ageing parents. But I didn’t have either the time or the means to get access to correct, unbiased information. This is what made me study the financial markets myself and subsequently started helping brother officers with their investments too. And after super annuating from the army, my hobby became my passion and Lets Invest Wisely was born. “
