HIGHER GROUND DURING FLOODS
A little downpour causes water logging and fl oods at times. Similarly, when you see risk in investments due to volatility, you need to move to a higher ground.
Debt Funds can be the boat that keeps you safe from volatility. They are low/medium-risk that invest in the likes of Bonds and Debentures. They’re like Fixed Deposits, but with the potential to deliver higher returns.
DROUGHT NO MORE
Sometimes, poor rainfall can lead to drought. For that purpose, we build dams and reservoirs. With money too, a drought can be quite alarming. You need to build your reserves bit by bit.
Equity Funds, like irrigation systems, can come to your rescue. They invest in company stocks of diff erent kinds. This gives them the potential to deliver high returns. They are best for long-term investments over 5 years.
THAT PERFECT MONSOON
Each year, farmers wait for that perfect monsoon season. Not too much, not too little. Getting such a balance is very important, even in your money matters.
In life, there’s no controlling the weather. But in the world of investments, opting for Balanced Funds sure can help you control risk. Such Funds invest in both Equity and Debt instruments. They have the potential to deliver returns, but without taking too much risk.
