The Earlier the Better

Mr. Joshi wants to arrange for sufficient funds for his daughter's marriage when she turns 26. Mr. Joshi has taken into account all the costs associated with his daughter's marriage and the total comes to Rs. 30 lakhs in present terms.

Let us find out how much Mr. Joshi needs to save every month in order to meet his financial goal of getting his daughter, Kavya, married at the age of 26.

Daughter's Age today 7 years

The Right Asset Allocation

Mutual funds are an excellent tool to help you achieve the goal of your children's marriage investment plan.

Before investing, however, you need to find out your risk appetite. Are you an aggressive investor, moderate investor, or a conservative investor?
