Where to invest lumpsum amount for short period ?

POSTED BY Happyinvest007 ON November 8, 2014 2:54 pm COMMENTS (5)

Hi,

I have lumpsum amount of 5 lakhs but not sure where to invest for 1-2 years. Since later I’m planning to use this amount for Home purchase.

Kindly suggest where I will get return more than FD, currently I can see only FD option. Expecting more return than FD for new investment.

      What he meant is “If you dont mind taking the risk then go for equity funds.” Since you need this money after 1-2 years for the down payment, its better to be safe by investing in FD and you can sleep properly at night. Had this request been for a longer duration like 10+ years you would have got the response as “Invest in Equity MFs” 🙂
