I ran into this amazing app the other day- Multipl
What if we can do the same if not better? I wish to buy a new MacBook Air, but I realise my savings aren’t there yet.
What IF Jupiter offers us Pots (specially modified for this goal), where I get to choose the monthly instalments, for a specific period of time. And I get to choose the method of investment depending on risk appetite.
Mutual funds or Digital Goal. Set it for a year. At the 11th month, I get the option to pick the merchant- Amazon, Flipkart or Croma. Set up a delivery address.
At the 12th hour, of the last day the POT matures, Jupiter auto places an order with the merchant, and I get my MacBook delivered without hassles in a week?
I’m happy. The merchant is happy for a sale. And Jupiter is happy for a) the commission from the merchant and b) helping me reach my goal aka repeat customer.
