Fixed Deposit: The market has been witnessing huge ups and downs for a long time. Both Sensex and Nifty have slipped from record highs and now there is continuous fluctuation in one range only. In such a situation, less risky investors are getting nervous about investing in the stock market. For such investors, there are still some options like FD where they can get more than 7 per cent return on their capital.
FD (Fixed Deposit) has been the preferred choice of investors for long-term investment as the investment is not affected by market volatility. In this, benefits like interest payment option, no market risk and income tax deduction option are available in this.
