Due recognition is also given to venture capital, hedge funds and private equity.

Outlook Money: Outlook Money India’s No.1 personal finance magazine, gives in-depth analysis and sound advice on all facets of investing well, borrowing wisely and spending smartly. As we witness one of the most challenging economic situations in history, there is a lot of speculation in the market. There are many who suggest that we are far from a recovery and that we should stay away from the equity market at this point. However, being fearful while others are reckless, and being a little venturesome when others are fearful, is an oft-repeated advice to succeed in the equity markets. Longer-term returns are better when the prices at which assets are bought are reasonable and, in many cases, close to crisis levels. Given this scenario it’s time to revisit the basics.

Outlook’s Transformation Outlook has been on the forefront of investigative reporting, political analysis, trends in the society, giving voice to the powerless, breaking stories in sports and going behind the scenes in entertainment for over 25 years.
Now the magazine and the website are all set to begin a new phase—to disrupt the way news is reported and presented in India. We will not spam the readers with an information overload. Our aim is to take a 360-degree view of news development and bring fresh insight into the clutter in other publications and portals. Our idea is not to chase the breaking new, our intent is to look at news from multiple perspectives. In the new Outlook, the focus is on politics, culture and society from the prism of social issues like caste politics, education policies, history of protests, the danger of terrorism, army action in Kashmir and the North East, inflation and jobs, the business of fashion. The Outlook covers are an artistic representation curated by well-known artists and illustrators.
Outlook in its new avatar is a longform platform, designed to set a perspective that should lead to a well-informed conversation. We value our discerning readers and we know they want credible quality content.
The newly designed Outlook India, our digital platform is an extension of our magazine. We lead the magazine stories to the web with more aspects on the same topic that we publish in the magazine. We have additional sections on business and finance, sports, entertainment, travel… and in the coming months we will add new sections on our digital platform.
Our transformation is led by Outlook Editor, Chinki Sinha. The business section is led by Outlook Business Editor, Suchetana Ray, personal finance/cryptocurrency section by Outlook Money Editor, Nidhi Sinha, travel section by Outlook Traveller Editor, Ashish Jha.
