RetyrSmart is all about supporting and enriching the life of our “not so young” people. Focussed on helping older people:
a) Prepare for their Retirement (50 years +)
b) Enjoy their Retirement (60 years +) and
c) Sustain their Retirement (70 years +).

It has been founded by two experienced professionals who have spent decades managing businesses and people. With the clear objective of making Retyrsmart into a One Stop Shop for News, Views & Advise for the “not so young, seasoned people”.

SV Prasad – Executive Chairman. SV has over 35 years of experience across financial services, asset management and investment banking. He holds an MMS from Jamnalal Bajaj Institute of Management Studies, Mumbai and has done short Strategy Programs in Harvard & Wharton Business Schools, IMD Lausanne & Australian Graduate School of Management.

SV has worked in senior positions in JM Financial, Standard Chartered Bank, ANZ Grindlays Bank, been CEO of Zurich India, Birla Sun Life & Country Head for Schroders (India). An institution builder, SV has closely worked on a number of policy initiatives with the Government and with Securities Exchange Board of India (SEBI) and Reserve Bank of India (RBI).



Rajan Krishnan – Executive Director. RK has spent more than 30 years across businesses in advertising, market research and asset management. He holds a PGDBM from XLRI, Jamshedpur. He is passionate about Marketing and is keenly looking for the best ways to take the Retyrsmart message to as many older people as possible.

RK has worked in some of the leading ad agencies of India like Lintas (Lowe Lintas) and Ogilvy Mather (O&M). He has also held senior positions in Sales & Marketing in mutual fund companies like Kothari Pioneer, Zurich India, Principal Pnb and has been the CEO of (Bank of) Baroda Pioneer.

Both of them strongly believe in the power of our older people. While the entire nation is enthused about the younger people and the demographic dividend, these two are focussing their energies and time on building a supportive and supported community of older people, through RetyrSmart. Their vision is to see a growing community of older Indians who are:

– Developing new passions and skills
– Managing their finances, health and all other important aspects well
– Reaching out to help within and outside this community
– Secure in Retirement
– Enjoying their Retirement

Over time, SV and Rajan, through Retyrsmart, would love to transform our older people into a powerful and influential community that can and will effect significant changes for the better in India.
