Investment in Mutual Funds: Investing in large cap, mid-cap or blue chip funds will allow you to attain a diversified yet balanced portfolio. Sector based investment in mutual funds if you have the right knowledge will definitely boost your earning in a short term.

Investment in Start-ups or go for IPOs: The current market scenario is brimming with opportunity with startup companies floating every day. If there is a good startup company with a great idea, then investing in it is a sure formula to achieve your goal sooner. Investing in good IPOs always bring good returns.

Investment in Stocks: While stocks do require a risk-taking appetite, it also reaps in huge profits in a short period. However, do take note of the fact that investment in stocks and attaining short terms gains on them also levies tax.

  1. While it is great to earn more money, the addition of the extra revenue also brings us under an increased tax scanner. We list few ways by which you can invest as well as save on your tax.

  2. Investing in Public Provident Fund PPF not only gives you a high interest rate of 8.7 but also allows you to save tax under the sec 80C.

  3. Go for ELSS to attain 12% to 15% returns while saving on your tax too.

  4. NPS brings in tax benefit up to an income of Rs 50,000 and gives annualized returns of 14% to 15%.

  5. The Voluntary Provident Fund is the safest way to invest to enjoy the dual benefits of extra revenue earning and tax benefit.

    This article claims RJio was given a "Backdoor Entry" into the 4G Based Voice Routing. The peculiar aspect is without the Voice License, Rjio would have been a mere ISP. With the license, it is now a holistic communications service provider, with ability to exponentially scale the bouquet of products. The events indicate it was meticulously planned way before the auctions because the auctions were clear on the agenda: 4G for internet only.

Why to Choose Mutual Funds Instead of Directly Investing Into Equities?

Whether to invest in equities or mutual funds is a question that has plagued every investor. As someone who needs the best value for his/her investment should you invest in equity directly or via mutual funds?

Let’s start by first understanding what these two terms ‘equities’ and ‘mutual funds’ stand for-

Equities- Equities generally represent ownership of a company. If you own any equity in a company, you are a part owner of the said company (depending on how much equity you own).

Mutual Funds – It is an investment scheme which is professionally managed by an asset management company. It pools together the resources of a group of people and invests their money in equities, debentures, bonds and other securities.

Why choose mutual funds over equities?

For people who’ve never invested in either stocks or mutual funds, it is hard to know which is better and where to start. Broadly speaking, if you are a novice investor, mutual funds are not only less risky but also way easier to manage. Here are some ways in which investing in mutual funds is beneficial as opposed to investing in equities -

Diversification

Mutual funds provide more diversification as compared to an individual equity stock. When you invest in equity, you are investing in a single company which has its inherent risk. For example, if you invest Rs.20,000 in buying equities of one company, you could face a total loss if that particular company performs poorly in the market.  

If you invest the same amount in mutual funds, it will be invested in different kinds of stocks and financial instruments, high-risk and low-risk both, so you might not face total loss even if one company does poorly.

Scale of Investment and Lower Costs

For an individual investor buying and selling stocks is a difficult task due to its high price. Thus, any gains made from stock appreciation are nullified if the overall trading costs are considered. Comparatively with mutual funds, as the money is pooled from a large number of investors, the cost per individual is lowered.  

Another advantage of mutual funds is that you don’t need to invest large sums of money. Buying equities for a profitable venture needs huge amounts of money, a minimum of few lakhs. With mutual funds, you can start with Rs.1000 and earn profits on that as well.

Convenience

Keeping an eye on the markets everyday is a time-consuming business, especially if you are investing as a side gig. There are people who spend their lives studying the market and still end up sustaining heavy losses. Though investing in mutual funds does not guarantee high returns, it is stress-free and needs less work as compared to investing in equities.

To sum it up

It is important to remember that mutual funds have their own disadvantages as well. Thus, as with any financial decision, educating yourself and understanding the suitability of all the available options is the ideal way to invest.
