Chart of the week


Gyaan Ki Baat

The goal of an emergency fund is to cover emergencies and not generate higher returns. The fund helps you immensely to meet unplanned/unforeseen expenses without dipping into your long-term investments. Ideally, you can target 6-12 months of your expenses in emergency fund. An emergency fund is an investment allocation which should be liquid and accessible at any time.

If you are young or do not have lump sum allocation immediately you can build it via SIP (Systematic Investment Plan).
