5 Best Saving Schemes in India That You Can Invest In

The advantages of investing in a Mutual Fund

Advantages of Easy Invest:

Ease of execution

The Easy Invest mode of investment saves the time and effort involved in giving multiple instructions to the mutual fund to redeem from one scheme and invest in another and converts it into a single instruction, to be executed over the defined period.

Better returns potential

It gives the investor an opportunity to earn a potentially better return as compared to returns from a savings bank account.

Averaging of Cost

By investing regularly the investor gets the benefit of “Rupee Cost averaging” and benefits from the volatility in the share market.


A Mutual Fund is a trust that pools the savings of a number of investors who share a common financial goal. The money thus collected is then invested in capital market instruments such as shares, debentures and other securities.

The income earned through these investments and the capital appreciation realized are shared by its unit holders in proportion to the number of units owned by them. Thus a Mutual Fund is the most suitable investment for the common man as it offers an opportunity to invest in a diversified, professionally managed basket of securities at a relatively low cost.
