The economic slowdown is now reality. Stocks have tumbled and still looking for bottom to settle. MFs are ruined and have little to offer to investors now. Real Estate is in doldrums as liquidity and easy loans are drying up. What options are left for investors with some cash in hand to make little extra money in these difficult times. Recently I came across a comparative on Fixed Deposit interest rates in TOI and I think it makes much sense to put money at 10-11% growth path albeit it won’t give much mileage and returns would still be nagative as most places inflation at the moment is more than 10%.
