5 Key parallels between Kabaddi, investments and financial planning

Kabaddi is a contact sport that emerged in the ancient India and is a popular sport in South Asia. The main objective of this game is to grab points by raiding into the opponent's court and touching as many opponent players as possible without getting caught on a single breath. Each player, chant “Kabaddi! Kabaddi! Kabaddi” and enter into the opponent court and try to touch the defence players nearest to him, while the opponents make tactical coordinated efforts to catch that player.

Because size matters

In a game of Kabaddi, each team consists of 12 members out of which seven are in the court and five in the reserve. The distribution of these members is done to maintain balance when the game is being played. The two teams are supposed to defend and attack accordingly. Similarly, considering Mutual Fund investments, we should ensure that our portfolio is a balanced one. The allocation and management of the portfolio should have the potential to offer returns and circumvent risks; hence the assets should be distributed equally between equity schemes, fixed-income schemes, real estate schemes etc. 

Observe, identify and attack

One tactic in the sport is of the raider to be able to judge its defenders and attack very well; because the defender(s) can change his system of play and can end up becoming stronger. This tactic if applied to Mutual Fund investments can prove to be beneficial to the investor. Well, the investor should be able to detect under the weather components of his/her portfolio and eliminate them as quick as possible to avoid loss or risks. This way the investor can very well maintain a balanced portfolio; and build a potential of booking profits.

Chant Kabaddi

A feature in the game of Kabaddi, which sets it apart from other sports, is its ‘chant’. Beginners in the game often find themselves in a difficult position in doing this because this requires concentration and patience. If the player fails to chant at any moment during his raid, he will be out of the match; and this is quite the situation in the realm of Mutual Funds. New investors or novices often don’t know how it works when one invests in schemes. They are also, more often than not, hysterical about market movements and panic during uncertainties. The key to achieve financial goals is to stay invested by maintaining levels of patience and focus.


Training or skill drills are not restricted to beginners only. Advanced players too, are constantly made to perform drills to polish and intensify their existing potential. This can be applied to financial or investment planning in two ways. First, it is always crucial to update our knowledge repository, with regards to learning new ways to invest, read and research about Mutual Fund schemes, keep a tab on the movements of the market. While taking the second method into account; an investor should efficiently manage the portfolio, every once in a while to assure better performance.

A right entry can give a raider a safe exit

The defenders are always aware and pre-plan about every move that a raider is going to make. The crucial part for a raider is to judge it in advance and make a right entry. This can be correlated to making right choices when beginning to invest or charting out a financial plan. The fundamentals should always be clear; priorities should be highlighted and considered important, since they are to be meted out first. Also, before getting started with any kind of investment, the investor should be careful on which scheme he or she would prefer to plough their money to get their desired result by the end, marking a safe exit.
