Courses like engineering and MBBS in India can cost millions while studying abroad can exceed Rs 1 crore. This blog explores investment strategies to secure children’s future amidst skyrocketing education expenses.

1. Seeking the Right Investment

The ideal investment should provide returns above inflation, align with long-term goals, offer tax efficiency, and ensure liquidity when required.

2. Assessing Cashback Plans Life 

insurance-linked investment plans with periodic cashback can fund different stages of your child’s education. However, consider the annual rate of return and potential limitations

3. Separating Life Insurance and Investment 

To achieve both targets effectively, consider separate life insurance coverage to secure your family’s future and invest in education-related ventures separately.

4. Parameters for Investment 

Strategize investments based on educational goals, approximate expenses, education inflation, and the time available to arrange the necessary funds.

5. Balancing Mutual Funds and Government Schemes 

Opt for a balanced mix of mutual funds and government schemes to achieve inflation-beating returns, liquidity, and tax benefits.

6. Index Funds and ELSS 

Consider investing in index funds like Nifty50 and Sensex, which have delivered around 12% returns per annum. High-risk tolerance investors can also explore active mutual funds and Equity Linked Savings Scheme (ELSS).

7. Sukanya Samridhi Yojana and Provident Fund 

For those averse to stock markets, explore other options like Sukanya Samridhi Yojana and provident fund.

8. Balancing Debt and Equity Investments 

Given that debt investments may not keep pace with education inflation, combine sensible debt and equity instruments to meet your needs effectively.

Summing it up

Plan ahead for rising education costs with smart investments. Regularly review your financial strategy to adapt to changing goals. Beat education inflation with prudent planning and well-chosen investments for a financially secure future.
