  1. Hi,
    Could you please make an article on some best liquid funds which can be used instead of FD.


  2. What is the difference between Liquid funds and Overnight funds? Please suggest any good either of these to invest for a year or so. Thanks.

    1. Hello Raman, Yield in simple terms is what you get yearly over tenure without compounding. Lets say you are getting Rs 60,000 for 5 years on Rs 12 Lakhs investment post compounding, then yield is 60,000 / 12 Lakhs x 100 = 5%. Yield would be always high compared to interest (which is compounded Qtrly, yearly depending the option)
