3. Systematic Investment Plan (SIP):

You can start an SIP in a mutual fund for your sister and can invest a fixed amount on a regular basis for as many years as you want. Adding to it, you can choose to invest through SIP in equity or a debt fund, depending on your risk appetite. First, consult your financial advisor if you have limited or no knowledge of mutual funds.

4. No Gold Jewellery, Yes to Paper Gold:

You can buy your sister paper gold, instead of gold jewellery. You can buy your sister Gold ETFs. These are listed on the exchanges and invest in physical gold. Each unit of a Gold ETF represents 1/2 gram of 24 karat physical gold. They give ample liquidity because these can be sold on exchanges anytime.

Remember if you have little knowledge of any of these financial products, then first you should discuss them with your financial planner. Make this Rakhi Special and share your experiences with me.
