“If one were to tell you that over the past 150 months, equities outperformed FD’s 18% to 7%, and outperformed gold 18% to 11.7%, you would most likely look at the information with some skepticism. But wait- there’s more,” says Raghu Kumar, Cofounder, RKSV.

“There’s a secret that, surprisingly, many investors are not aware of: if you hold on to an investment for more than 12 months, your profits are tax-exempt. This flies in the face of fixed deposits and gold investments,” he adds.
