Subbu's Solution

I am 24 years old. I have a monthly surplus of Rs.4,000. I want to invest for the long-term but do not want to take much risk. Please suggest some investment options. Also, please suggest a few books that can educate me on making investments in mutual funds.
At your age and for long term generally equity is best suited. But then with high returns, it also comes with high risk. If you are looking for investment options that don’t carry much risk then you can invest some part of your surplus income in liquid fund and some can be invested in gold to give your portfolio some diversification. A balanced fund could also be a good option including a multi asset fund. There are a lot of financial gurus out there, Warren Buffet of Berkshire Hathway, John Bogle of Vanguard, Bill Bonner of Agora etc. who have written several books on investing right. Those books should give you a good insight into the world of investments. Moreover you could also consult a financial advisor to suggest you a scheme.
