How Important Is Investing For Women?
As per a survey conducted by DSP Investor Pulse, an Indian financial firm, in 2019, only one-third of women take investment decisions by themselves1. This speaks volumes on how little women are exposed to the world of investing.
Surprisingly, even as many women are becoming financially independent, the idea of investing in stocks, bonds, or even real estate is still often linked to the men of the family. The concept of aggressive investing continues to be absent in the lives of many working women. They prefer saving for their future in bank accounts or investing in jewelry like gold.
In these times of sky-rocketing inflation and unexpected economic downturns, the need for a well-planned and calculated investment strategy is crucial for everyone. With the right investments, you can secure not just your future, but that of your loved ones as well.
Investment options, such as owning real estate, stocks, bonds, ULIPs, mutual funds, can offer you more economic flexibility. This ensures that you do not have to depend on others for your financial needs.
What Is The Right Time For Women To Invest?
Financial experts suggest that the right time to invest your money is at the earliest possible opportunity. Hence, investing should be a part of your financial plan from the early years of your career.
This will provide you with a significant amount of time to let your money grow. Also, it will provide you with enough time to make up for any losses due to low-performing investments. Having said that, you can pick the different long-term and short-term options for investment based on your specific goals.
You can start your investment with SIP (Systematic Investment Plan) in Mutual Funds! This way of investment has lower risk and more returns compared to other modes of investment.
Tips For Women Before Investing!
Consider the following steps to create a successful investment plan:
- Evaluate your financial goal: Make sure to define your goals so you can pick appropriate investment options suitable for each specific goal.
- Consider the tenure of your investment: If you are looking for immediate returns, you should choose a short-term instrument. However, if your goal is not an immediate one, you should invest in a long-term instrument.
- Analyze the risk involved in the investment: Each investment tool carries a certain level of risk, which may affect the returns that you will receive at the end of the tenure of the investment. Ensure that the risk involved is aligned to your risk appetite.
- Don't wait for the right time to invest: The only right time to invest is right now. The sooner you start, the higher can be the sum accumulated.
- Life cover: While planning for the future, make sure to secure your loved ones too. Make sure you buy Life Insurance with adequate cover.
