You can enjoy the opportunity to get potentially better returns and grow your money by investing in mix of equity and debt. This combination helps you beat inflation while protecting your investments.
Inflation is the rate at which the price of goods and services increases over a period of time. For example, the average price of petrol has increased from ₹ 40 in 2005 to ₹ 62 in 2015 as a result of inflation over the same period*.
On the other hand, savings rate is the rate at which your savings grow. To gain from your investments, your savings rate should be higher than the inflation rate.
In order to get better returns in the long run, it is advisable to have exposure to equity. Although equity markets are subjected to short term market volatility, the impact of this short term volatility on long term investments made to equity funds in ULIPs is negligible.
Below is an example of how investing in a mix of equity and debt can help in building your savings, while protecting your investment over the long run.
If 60% of your money was invested in the equity market and 40% in debt market## in the last 10 years, your investment would have grown by around 12% on an annualized basis. This growth would have helped you stay ahead of the inflation rate of about 6%# in the same period.
