Corporation Bank Recurring deposit: Is it the best way to save?

Saving a specific amount of money every month can lead to a substantial amount for the emergency fund in the long term.Recurring deposit options can be availed to do so. However, they are not the best saving option if wealth creation is the objective. Let’s see you plan on saving for your retirement. A Recurring Deposit with 7% interest rate may not give you the returns needed to create a decent retirement fund. However, depositing the same amount in a Mutual Fund as SIP (Systematic Investment Plan) can help you create the kind of wealth you are aiming for.

The Benefits of Investing in SIPs

  • A small amount of money that can be as low as Rs 500 has to be deposited by you every month or every quarter.
  • On the basis of your budget and investment goal, your money will be invested in debt or equity funds. In the past decade, Equity Linked mutual funds have performed well in the market with a return of 12-22%. This will give significantly higher returns than recurring deposits.
