Where to invest money in India for higher returns?

Where to invest money in India-can we invest in stocks1) Invest money in stocks: Don’t laugh at me. You might be getting doubt that, can we still invest in stocks as markets reached peak. It would be high risk to invest in the stock market now. While this is true, the good part is that you can still invest in the stock market now. You can choose good stocks that have low beta value. Beta value of the stock indicates the volatility of stock compared to the Sensex. E.g. Infosys has a beta value of 0.57. Means for every 1% fluctuation in Sensex, Infosys would fluctuate with 0.57%. It could be an increase in Sensex or it could be declined in Sensex. Hence, investing in low beta value stocks would help you to stay invested in the stock market as well provide your low risk compared to other stocks during markets reaching the peak.

Invest money in India in Mutual funds2) Invest money in Mutual funds: Investing in mutual funds through SIP helps you to overcome market volatility, hence you can safely invest in mutual funds. Just little caution is not investing large money now through lump sum investments in equity mutual funds. If you have a lump sum you can look for balanced funds, debt funds,  liquid funds and ultra short term funds to invest. Investing in top performing mutual funds through SIP would always be better.


Invest your money in India in Tax saving options3) Invest money in tax saving options: While you can expect tax saving u/s 80C, you can get a good growth in your money by investing in tax saving options. You can invest your money in ELSS Mutual funds, PPF, NSC, 5 year tax saving FD schemes, etc., Investing in ELSS mutual funds can help you to take advantage of equity stock's growth as well provides you a tax benefit with lock-in period of 3 years.


Where to invest money in India-NCD

4) Invest money in Secured Non Convertible Debentures (NCD): Many of us have a fear of investing in company FD’s and NCD’s that we may lose money. While some of the companies have cheated investors earlier, I believe in getting higher returns through secured NCD’s. E.g. currently Shriram Transport City Union Finance Secured NCD’s of Apr-2014 is going to open for subscription. These are secured in nature, hence carry less risk compared to other NCD investment options. Investing in such options would give you higher returns.

5) Invest in Bank Fixed Deposits/Recurring deposits: While I concentrate on other investment options, I would definitely invest part of my money in fixed income options like Fixed Deposits. These are safe investment options which provides you assured returns. You can refer our current and latest FD rates and invest.

Where to invest money in India-IPO6) Invest money in IPO’s: Like I indicated earlier, investing money in IPO’s in India would provide you with higher returns. In 2013, IPO’s have given more than 65% returns on the investment, hence I feel investors who have a high risk appetite could invest in IPO’s. IPO is a good option to invest money in India to get best returns.


Invest money in India-Real Estate

7) Invest your money in real estate: Though I have not been investing much in real estate, I felt this was one area where I ignored and regretting now. Investing in real estate for medium to long term is always been giving higher returns. You could double or triple your money in 5 to 20 year time frame.

Best Gold ETF's in India to invest in 2013 for long term8) Invest your money in Gold: You might be wondering why I am advising you to invest in Gold when the prices are falling now. What is happening in the financial markets now? The stock market is increasing and gold prices are declining. Means these would react in an inversely proportional way. Do you know when the stock market declines are expected to fall? We may not exactly predict, but we can expect to happen anywhere after elections. Do you know what happens when the stock market falls? Yes, gold prices would increase. Investors would reduce their stock market exposure during market crash and invest in gold. This  is what I have seen in the last few cycles. Don’t you think it is good bet to invest now in Gold and sell them after the market crash where gold prices would start increasing? You can invest in gold ETF's which are best option for investment in Gold.

Conclusion: Investing in above top investment options can help you to grow your money faster. Now stop thinking where to invest money in India to get good returns and start acting on them.

Happy Investing !!!
