  • NRO vs NRE Account: What’s The Difference and Which is Better?

    21 Jan 2015 | 3:08 am
    In the last post, I provided information about opening a NRE or NRO account in India while you are abroad. However, the procedure of opening a NRE or NRO account is same, many NRIs always get confused about which is the better among the two. Basically, it depends upon your specific needs and requirements. Understanding the basic features and benefits of both these accounts, a NRI could choose either one of them for his or her savings account in India. The main reason NRIs opt for a NRE or NRO account is to maintain a Rupee account in India. Maintaining a rupee account in India helps the NRIs…
  • How to Open a NRE or NRO Account in India for NRIs?

    16 Jan 2015 | 1:02 am
    The major concern that troubles a lot of NRIs is to find an effective way to transfer money to India as well as from India for some cases. There are many different options available to send and receive money from abroad but not all of them are highly effective and some are too costly to afford. Even if they find the best option to send money to India from abroad, it is very difficult to maintain a Rupee account in India. Hence, the Government of India has introduced two options for NRI to open a bank account in India – NRE or NRO account. Both NRE and NRO accounts can be used to transfer…
  • Apple Pay’s Black Friday Miss

      The numbers are in on the usage of Apple Pay (Apple’s digital wallet) on Black Friday and they aren’t pretty. According to a survey of more than 400 users conducted by InfoScout, more than 95% of iPhone 6 and 6+ users could have paid with Apple Pay on Black Friday and didn’t. And most iPhone 6 and 6+ users haven’t even given it a try. I have a couple theories as to why: Reason #1. The honeymoon for Apple Pay was over before it began. On September 19, 2014, I tuned in to the live streamed iPhone 6 launch event and waited with anticipation. The excitement level was at a fever…

    I've used Capital One's credit card fairly actively for the past 4 or 5 years. And they've rarely, if ever, declined a charge (and there has never been any fraud on the card). The last fraud message I can find in my email was in December 2011 (see last screenshot). But apparently our travel combined with extra holiday spending finally caused the banks' fraud system to flag our account, rejecting a $100+ Target purchase a few days after Christmas.

    The start of a new year is the perfect time to make some positive changes. But it’s not as easy as it sounds, is it? We want to lose weight, get a new job, or work less. Why don’t we just do it? Because doing something different takes more than just the desire for it to happen. There is a missing link between the desire for the change and making it happen. NFL Quarterback, Alex Smith gave an inspiring speech on change. He explains that if you don’t like where you are or what you are doing, then you need to do something different. Blogger Denise Scarbro lays out the four…

  • The Mobile Banking Triple Play

    Brian Hagan
    19 Jan 2015 | 4:16 pm
    Cable and telecommunications companies are masters of marketing when it comes to selling their services to customers. The seemingly ubiquitous “triple play” is a clever and often convincing tactic to get us to bundle a bunch of services from a bunch of companies under one umbrella. The pitch, so to speak, is that if we pay for all these different services through one provider, the total cost is less than if we were to buy separate services from separate providers. In theory and, more often than not, in practice, this is true, but the end result is sometimes a mega dose of sticker shock…

  • Holidays Promotions (or lack thereof) at Top-20 Banks

    Jim Bruene
    31 Dec 2014 | 4:12 pm
    For the past 10 years, I've done a year-end post looking at holiday promotions at the largest U.S. banks. And surprisingly, fewer banks than anytime since 2004 were running holiday messages in the days before Christmas. This year, only four of the 20 largest banks referenced the holidays on their homepages. That compares to nine banks last year, eight in 2012, and 10 in 2011. I'm at a loss to explain the retreat. My guess is that holiday promotions simply don't drive measurable sales lift. But these are massive retail banks and I'd think that virtual holiday decorations would be in the…

  • Gift Card Season Off to the Races: Square Places New Bet, Starbucks Goes All-In, Banks Stuck at Starting Gate

    This week, digital poster child Square jumped into the plastic gift card market. Unlike many of its new endeavors, old-school cards were met with a decided lack of enthusiasm in the tech press (and my Twitter feed). Many recalled the company's failed efforts with virtual gift cards (which I liked then, and still do). Most people in the tech press (and even more so in my Twitter feed) want their iPhone to handle all transactions, loyalty points, and payments. But that's not quite how the world works yet. Even Starbucks, claiming 90% of all U.S. mobile payments (pre Apple Pay of course), just…

    I have been taking in a fiew WEF disucssions and one I did enjoy was the Posen/ Martin Wolf interview, and can recommend this for anyone interested in nations and the worlds financial systems.  Wolf speaks of three key risks within the financial system which intestingly are precisely those same risks from 2008. D/E (Debt to Equity) of banks which on average sits in real terms (disregarding risk weighted) in the range of 20 : 1 or 25: 1.  Wolf makes the point that at that ratio consider how much loss needs to occur in asset value before the bank is work less than nothing.

  • Mobile Payment Unintended Consequences (or How I Locked Myself Out of the House, Again)

    Erin McCune
    15 Jan 2015 | 4:41 am
    I am writing this post sitting on the front steps of our house in San Francisco. I have locked myself out three times recently, more than I have in the past three decades. Is it dementia? No, I blame mobile payments. Last summer I bought a case for my iPhone that had handy little pockets for a credit card. Initially I only used it for my Clipper Card (the mass transit payment smart card we use here in the Bay Area). It was great to simply tap my phone as I boarded the tram or bus rather than fumbling in my briefcase or purse for my wallet. And it had the added benefit of making me look cool…

    2 Jan 2015 | 9:16 pm
    On a bright sunny New Year’s Day 2015, we lost our long-time friend and colleague Dennis Moser. Dennis had been battling a recurrence of cancer – undergoing treatment to battle the disease following the appearance of new symptoms at Thanksgiving. I remember seeing him in the office just before Christmas – as he was about to complete his last round of radiation therapy. While tired from the treatments, he was as optimistic as ever that this was just going to be a brief battle. When we heard the news of his passing just a few days later, we were stunned. Dennis and I have worked…

    One of the truly interesting presentations at this year’s Money2020 was the speech by Ben Lawsky, superintendent of New York’s Department of Financial Services. Lawsky’s remarks focused on his department’s BitLicense proposal and demonstrated the struggle Lawsky and his team face as they create regulation for Bitcoin and math-based currencies (MBCs) in general. Released in July, the NYDFS proposed “BitLicense” regulatory framework requires comprehensive reporting, background checks and identity proofing of business leaders, as well as mandatory bonding for all BitLicense holders…

    The major concern that troubles a lot of NRIs is to find an effective way to transfer money to India as well as from India for some cases. There are many different options available to send and receive money from abroad but not all of them are highly effective and some are too costly to afford. Even if they find the best option to send money to India from abroad, it is very difficult to maintain a Rupee account in India. Hence, the Government of India has introduced two options for NRI to open a bank account in India – NRE or NRO account. Both NRE and NRO accounts can be used to transfer…

    The start of a new year is the perfect time to make some positive changes. But it’s not as easy as it sounds, is it? We want to lose weight, get a new job, or work less. Why don’t we just do it? Because doing something different takes more than just the desire for it to happen. There is a missing link between the desire for the change and making it happen. NFL Quarterback, Alex Smith gave an inspiring speech on change. He explains that if you don’t like where you are or what you are doing, then you need to do something different.

    The Yoga studio is packed and people are jockeying for their “spots”. There is no extra room for coats, boots, bags, etc yet some people take up the needed space. Some people are friendly and chatty, while others are aloof. I find myself getting annoyed with others around me and draw inward rather than smiling or introducing myself. As the class gets going, the yoga teacher starts talking about the difference between kindness and fondness and how we do NOT need to be fond of someone in order to be kind. It was a good reminder and mental reboot. We all run into people who we are…

    3 Dec 2014 | 6:35 am
      The numbers are in on the usage of Apple Pay (Apple’s digital wallet) on Black Friday and they aren’t pretty. According to a survey of more than 400 users conducted by InfoScout, more than 95% of iPhone 6 and 6+ users could have paid with Apple Pay on Black Friday and didn’t. And most iPhone 6 and 6+ users haven’t even given it a try. I have a couple theories as to why: Reason #1. The honeymoon for Apple Pay was over before it began. On September 19, 2014, I tuned in to the live streamed iPhone 6 launch event and waited with anticipation. The excitement level was at a fever…
