Investments can be of different types. Not every person has the risk appetite to invest in the high-risk equity market. Some parents prefer the traditional route of investing in government-backed savings accounts that earn a fixed interest. While the returns may not be as great as ULIPs, they inculcate the habit of regular savings that ultimately helps finance key milestones in their daughters’ lives.
Let’s discuss the range of Aditya Birla girl child investment plans that you can explore for your daughters.
Broadly, the idea behind savings is to ensure future financial stability for the girl, in your absence or otherwise. This is where insurance comes in handy. Mostly, it is advisable to invest in a child ULIP which offers benefits of savings, market-linked returns, and insurance protection. However, these come with certain risks given the volatility of the market. Other alternatives could be investing in a term life insurance plan along with a fixed deposit or a savings account such as the Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana.
The following sections discuss these options along with the respective offerings of Aditya Birla Capital and Aditya Birla Sun Life Insurance (ABSLI).
This type of investment requires a parent/guardian to open an account in the name of their minor child and deposit fixed amounts. The account earns interest as specified for different schemes. The accumulated amount at the end of the tenure is payable to the girl child that she can use to fund her expenses. These are the safest forms of investment given the sovereign backing and assured returns. With Aditya Birla, you have the following options:
It allows deposits in the range of Rs. 250 to Rs. 1,50,000 in a year for a period of 14 years.
The girl child can only withdraw money from the account once she turns 18 years of age.
The Sukanya Samriddhi Yojana account earns interest at the rate of 7.6% per annum for a maximum period of 21 years.
You can open an account in the name of your girl child and invest a lump sum that your child shall receive after a fixed tenure.
Along with the maturity payout, the deposit earns interest at the rate of 5.5% to 6.45% per annum.
The lock-in period of 3 months ensures that the money remains invested for that duration and continues to earn interest.
A minimum deposit of Rs. 5000 and a maximum of Rs. 1 Crore can be made in the Aditya Birla Capital fixed deposit account.
The minimum and maximum investment limits are set at Rs. 500 and Rs. 1,50,000 respectively.
You can choose to extend the investment tenure beyond 15 years if you feel like you need to save more for your daughter’s future.
The best part is the PPF account continues to accrue interest even after the maturity period if you don’t withdraw the sum.
To cover any key milestone in your daughter’s education, you can apply for a loan of up to 25% of the fund value.
ABSLI insurance plans for girl child can comprise of - traditional child insurance cum savings plan and ULIP-based investment cum insurance protection plans. Both these types of plans charge a premium amount against the desired life cover. The latter however invests a portion of premiums in market-linked funds to generate higher returns.
Unit-linked insurance plans are typical investment avenues that offer dual benefits of insurance and market-linked returns. These plans are entirely for the purpose of wealth creation and should be explored by parents who expect huge expenses with regard to international tuition fees, technical and business degrees from private universities, etc.
The returns from Aditya Birla girl child investment plans depend on the market conditions and the entire risk of investment is borne by the parent.
