This Diwali bring Financial Security to your Home

Introduction:

A person is financially secure when they don’t have to worry about their expenses exceeding their income. They know that their income is sufficient to not only cover all their costs but also to face emergencies, meet financial goals, and plan for the future. Who wouldn’t want this peace of mind? Knowing that you and your family have financial security is the best gift you can ask for this Diwali. It gives all the more reason to celebrate.

But how do you gift yourself and your family this precious gift.?  One of the ways you can do this is through saving and investing. It does not matter if you save just a few hundred rupees every month or if you saved more than half your income. Investing that money is one sure way to bring financial stability into your life.

Mutual funds

Out of all the financial instruments available in the market, a mutual fund is a popular choice for investment. That is because you aren’t the only person using your hard-earned savings to invest in an asset, a pool of other investors who also have the same financial goals as you have invested in the same asset. Once you have invested your money in this asset, you also have the added advantage of handing over the asset management to a professional whose main objective is to use the asset to provide you with the best returns and the least amount of risk. The fund is offered to you by asset management companies or fund houses, and the person who manages your fund is called a fund manager.

Different types of mutual funds are classified according to the type of asset you want to invest in, your financial objectives, the returns you want to earn, your risk appetite, and how long you want to hold the investment. There is a mutual fund for every type of investor. Before starting your mutual fund investment, you need a detailed analysis of your financial needs and goals and investing in the fund that best suits your needs.

How to invest in mutual funds?

You can easily invest in mutual funds through registered online stock brokers. All you will need is a demat account and a trading account. Ensure that your online stock broker provides you with an easy, fast and hassle-free way to set up these two accounts.

Once you set up both these accounts, make sure they are directly linked to your bank account. Your online stock broker should also provide you with a wide range of mutual funds to invest in. These should be top-performing mutual funds across various fund categories that are backed by solid research.

Once you decide on which stockbroker you will use, you need to open your demat and bank account with them. They will provide you with a User/login id and a password to log in to your account. Select the fund that best suits your investment need. Once you do so, the amount will get automatically debited from your bank account, and you can hold these mutual funds electronically in your demat account.

Once you invest in the right fund, you can make sure that you bring financial security home this Diwali.
