I had another strange encounter with an insurance agent at a roadshow held at a suburban shopping mall yesterday evening. While shopping around,  a persistent lady kept asking me whether I can help her do a survey and offered a packet of “Himalaya Salt” to me as souvenir. She also assured me that her colleagues and herself are not pushing any products and just wanted to do a quick financial survey. Knowing full well the pattern of the marketing tricks employed to make prospective preys less guarded by offering the free gift, I still decided to sit down with her to do the financial survey as I was curious to see what latest sales pitch and gimmicks they have up their sleeves these days. I also rejected the packet of “Himalaya Salt” being offered to me.  Which financials products have you heard before? Investment Linked Products, Endowment, Insurance, Unit
