Here is their untold story.

Tortoise and Hare

To begin, please select a story title

Who Saves the Day?
The Best to Invest

The highly strung #AspiringHare planned to keep working for as long as his feet could thump. This way, he could maintain a healthy mind and body too!

“If I keep working, I’ll keep making money, and
that only means more time to enjoy life now!”
he marvelled, his eyes gleaming.

The #CautiousTortoise on the other hand, who was constantly teased by his fluffy friend for being more about the destination rather than the race, went about his daily routine, squirreling money away each month into a savings account to make room for the future, though it meant living on a budget now.

The young, visionary that was the #AspiringHare soon became a successful entrepreneur yet he was hungry for more! He decided to park a large sum of his gains in the stock market. It might be risky, but the returns would be quicker and bigger he was told.

The #CautiousTortoise too had found himself with a fair bit of money. He instead chose the ‘safer route’ and put his money in an investment-linked insurance policy.

“Good things come to those who wait,”
said the #CautiousTortoise.

Suddenly, the forest economy took a downturn, crashing the stock market. If it weren’t for his savings, the #AspiringHare would have been in big trouble.

The #CautiousTortoise on the other hand, took a lighter hit from the blow and suggested that his fluffy friend rethink his investment strategy.

After all, what are good friends for if
not for sound advice?
