Prudent man rule

The Prudent Man Rule is based on common law stemming from the 1830 Massachusetts court formulation, Harvard College v. Amory The prudent man rule, written by Massachusetts Justice Samuel Putnam, directs trustees "to observe how men of prudence and intelligence manage their own affairs, not in regard to speculation, but in regard to the permanent disposition of their funds, considering the probable income, as well as the probable safety of the capital to be invested." Under the Prudent Man Rule, when the governing trust instrument is silent concerning the types of investments permitted, the fiduciary is required to invest trust assets as a "prudent man" would invest his own property with the following factors in mind: the needs of beneficiaries. The application of these general principles depends on the type of account administered; the Prudent Man Rule continues to be the prevailing statute in a small number of states, in particular with regards to investments permitted by mutually-chartered institutions such as savings banks and insurance companies.

The Prudent Man Rule requires that each investment be judged on its own merits and that speculative or risky investments must be avoided. Under the Prudent Man Rule, certain types of investments, such as second mortgages or new business ventures, are viewed as intrinsically speculative and therefore prohibited as fiduciary investments; as with any fiduciary relationship, margin accounts and short selling of uncovered securities are prohibited. In contrast with the modern Prudent Investor Rule, isolated investments in a portfolio may be imprudent on individual merits at the time of acquisition, however, as a part of a portfolio, the investment could be prudent. Thus, a fiduciary may not be held liable for a loss in one investment. Since the Prudent Man Rule was last revised in 1959, numerous investment products have been introduced or have come into the mainstream. For example, in 1959, there were 155 mutual funds with nearly $16 billion in assets. By year-end 2000, mutual funds had grown with $6.9 trillion in assets.

In addition, investors have become more sophisticated and are more attuned to investments since the last revision of the Rule. As these two concepts converged, the Prudent Man Rule became less relevant; this discounting of the relevance of the prudent man rule is more the result of market forces than it is of the needs of individuals for "safety of capital". The 10,000+ mutual funds of 2000 have grown to over 15,000 mutual funds in 2006; the Prudent Man Rule in its broader interpretations implies that the fiduciary should perform enough due diligence to ensure that the company meets the investment needs of the investors. Typical due diligence includes discussions with management and customers, as well as proper evaluation of any risk factors that might affect the performance of the company or its securities; the modern interpretation of the "Prudent Man Rule" goes beyond the assessment of each asset individually to include the concept of due diligence and diversification. This is sometimes referred to as the "Prudent Investor Rule".

The logic is this: an asset may be too risky to put all your money in but may still be diversifying and therefore beneficial in a small proportion of the total portfolio.

Zia Fatehabadi

Mehr Lal Soni, better known as Zia Fatehabadi, was an Indian Urdu ghazal and nazm writer. He was a disciple of Syed Aashiq Hussain Siddiqui Seemab Akbarabadi, a disciple of Nawab Mirza Khan Daagh Dehlvi, he used the takhallus of Zia meaning "Light" on the suggestion of his teacher, Ghulaam Qadir Farkh Amritsari. Zia Fatehabadi was born on 9 February 1913 at Punjab, he was the eldest son of Munshi Ram Soni, a Civil Engineer by profession, who belonged to the Soni family of Kapila Gotra that, at some time during the reign of the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan, had migrated from Rajasthan to Punjab and settled at Fatehabad, Punjab near Tarn Taran. Zia Fatehabadi's father was an exponent of Indian Classical vocal and instrumental music, who invited musicians and singers to his residence, was himself fond of singing and playing musical instruments, a good player of chess, it was one such evening in Jaipur when the young school-going Zia Fatehabadi was not given by the invited singer a copy of Iqbal’s ghazal, liked and wanted by him.

When Zia Fatehabadi was a college student his was a respected name in the Urdu world. After the publication of his first book,Tullu, which had received some disheartening criticism, he had thought of giving up writing but he was dissuaded from doing so by friends and elders. Zia Fatehabadi had started composing Urdu sh'ers and ghazals at an early age when he was still attending school in Jaipur, his education began at Peshawar. However, he completed his schooling from Maharaja High School, Rajasthan, after which he obtained his B. A. degree in Persian in 1933 and M. A. degree in 1935 as a student of Forman Christian College, Lahore. He was an above average student; as the editor of the Urdu section of the college house magazine The Folio, Zia Fatehabadi was instrumental in getting the first-ever Urdu short story "Sadhu" by Krishan Chander published in 1932. At that time, Krishan Chander was interested in his English writings and edited the English section, it is in evidence that Zia Fatehabadi was infatuated with a Bengali girl named Meera, studying in the same college at the time, addressed all his love-poetry to her.

Her name figures unreservedly in several of his writings. In an interview, he had once disclosed that she was that Meera Sen who had inspired Meeraji to write superb poems and adopt her name as his takhallus. Zia Fatehabadi had met Meeraji for the first time when the latter accompanied by Upendranath Ashk, a friend of Zia Fatehabadi, visited the office of Moulana Salahudeen and proprietor of ‘Adabi Duniya’, where Meeraji was employed at that time. Krishan Chander and Zia Fatehabadi were good friends, it was during his college days that Zia Fatehabadi came into contact with Shabbir Hussain Josh Malihabadi and Samad Yar Khan Saghar Nizami. He developed a close lifelong relationship with them, which both influenced as helped shape his literary life. In 1936, Zia Fatehabadi joined the Reserve Bank of India, from which he retired in 1971 as Deputy Chief Officer, a senior position in the bank. In 1942, he married daughter of Murli Ram Berera of Lahore. Before joining the Reserve Bank of India, while seeking suitable employment, Zia Fatehabadi was interviewed for an editor's post with All India Radio, which went to Majaz.

However and Zia Fatehabadi remained close friends. Zia Fatehabadi began to write poetry in 1925 under the supervision of his mother, Shankari Devi, with the help of Maulvi Asghar Ali Haya Jaipuri, who used to teach him Urdu at home and who imparted his own knowledge of Urdu poetry composition to him. By 1929, Zia Fatehabadi had become a familiar name in Urdu literary circles. In 1930, he became Seemab Akbarabadi’s disciple and remained true to his ustad until his own death, working to spread Seemab's methods and instructions at all times, he never gave a moment's thought to his own name or fame and sought neither favours or honours nor public or state recognition. He categorically rejected such exercises, he believed that the real worth of a poet's creativity can be gauged impartially only by those who look deeper into his works, in their desire or eagerness to get to know the poet better. In 1933, at the age of 20 and while still a college student, Zia Fatehabadi succeeded in having his first collection of Urdu poems, published in Meerut by Saghar Nizami.

He wrote from the heart and, dressed his feelings, emotions and experiences with simple, sweet-sounding, meaningful understood words and phrases – the key features in his poetry. His inimitable style gave him a distinct identity, his writings were meant to touch one's heart and mind and make one feel all that he himself had felt. He was at ease in the use of a variety of prose and poetical formats. However, he did not succumb to the practice of uninhibited expression of ideas in open forms, adopted by some of his noted contemporaries, who had introduced symbolism in Urdu Poetry. In his article titled Zia Saheb, Gopichand Narang had said that he belonged to the Seemab Akbarabadi's circle of devoted writers.
