Please review my plan for Sister’s Marriage & Son’s Education investments ?

POSTED BY investment_options2014 ON May 31, 2014 10:01 am COMMENTS (3)

Hello All,

Below is my current scenario about my goals.

1. Short term goal (Time at hand- 1 year)

2. Long term goal (Time at hand – 10 years)

Below is the outline of my plan to achieve it.

1. Short term goal – Sister’s marriage

Plan: Planning to take RD or RD+ for a target fund of Rs. 2,00,000 in a year. So, monthly deduction toward RD or RD+ would be apprx Rs. 17,000. For the rest of the required amount for marriage, I have other options. So, my question is directed only towards the targeted amount.

Question: Do I have any other option to achieve the goal with some extra cash to earn with it.

2. Long term goal – Son’s education

Plan: Plan is to invest Rs. 50,000 per annum as single premium for a duration of 10 years.

Question: What investment options do I have to maximize the fund to its fullest at maturity.

I understand the only long term plan, would not help the cause. I would go ahead with another plan from next year based on my income. I would like to know the options based purely towards the current long term goal I have set.

Detailed suggestions are very appreciated.

    1. Yes…. RD is fine…. you can also try liquid or ultra short term funds also for this…. They give a bit more interest on RD but no guarantee….

    2. Invest partly in PPF, Equity mutual funds as the goal is long term…. Don’t invest lump sum at a time in any investment…. try investing monthly (SIP)

      Thank you for your insight. On short term goal, took your advise and started RD. On long term goal, will gather info based on your thoughts. Will get back with options I have and then with all your thoughts about it, will go about them accordingly.

      Thanks again for your reply !
