The idea is that our money should not only work hard for us; but should also be kept safe for your future needs."
Under this plan, your earnings on investment from equity are transferred to debt on a daily basis, if the return is 10% or higher, so that you can enjoy the upside of the equity market and also secure the returns on your investments. This is done using the ‘automatic trigger based’ investment strategy. This helps balance your portfolio and ensures you have a healthy balance of equity and debt as you grow older.

Our IndiaFirst Money Balance Plan is an initiative in the same direction and we are confident that it will be well received by our customers. Our ‘automatic trigger based' investment strategy will help customers be better off whether the market goes up or down,” adds Dr. Nandagopal.
