Subbu's Solution

I want to start an SIP in my 13-year-old son’s name. Is it possible to do so even though he does not have a PAN card. I am looking to invest Rs 5,000 per month, for a 5-year period,

what kind of funds should I look at?

Yes, you can always start an investment for your son. It is understood that your son being a minor may not be having a PAN card. You can submit his birth identification proof. But remember as a guardian it is mandatory that you need to have your KYC done. Also it is advisable to have a bank account in your son’s name with you as a guardian. As far as the investment is concerned an SIP for long term is best suited for your son. Generally, we suggest equity oriented funds for young investors who mostly have a high risk taking capability. You could invest in a diversified equity fund that will help you generate long term capital appreciation for your son
