Should we invest?
Recurring deposits are a popular investment choice for salaried individuals with a low tolerance for risk who are willing to contribute towards their deposit on a regular basis in return for a predetermined interest rate. While we are talking about recurring deposits, they are a good choice for both short and long term financial goals, and unlike debt instruments, Corporate RD returns are unaffected by market fluctuations.
However, while Shriram Transport Finance Company’s recurring filing scores high, such approaches help mitigate risk but are not purely risk-free. If the firm’s monetary health capacity declines, the RD may be subject to default risk, resulting in loss of interest and possibly the principal amount. Therefore, investors with a high risk appetite should look for corporate intellectual property securities rated “AAA” or higher to reduce the risk of collapse.
Those who do not wish to invest in recurring business deposits due to the risk can invest in recurring postal deposits with an interest rate of 5.8% or recurring deposits from private sector banks or small banks. financial institutions with an interest rate of up to 8%, where their deposits and earned interest are safe as they are insured by the Deposit Insurance and Credit Guarantee Company (DICGC) up to Rs 5 lakhs.
