  1. Talk to a Financial adviser. That’s all the help you’re getting here. Don’t take unprofessional peoples advice for your own sake. I hope by 100,000 you don’t mean US dollars? because that’s a lot of money you’re putting on the line for online answers.

  2. Dear Arun
    This is not the time to invest in the market unless you have good experience in it. And getting a good advisor is not easy (most of them are just sales people…selling their product/service)…so beware!!
    I would suggest look for some good piece of real estate which can give a positive cashflow. also…the returns on the FD & the like would not even be equal to the investment (forget the appreciation) if you consider the inflation
    I would suggest read some Financial book & gain knowledge. I would suggest author Robert Kiyosaki. also visit

  3. Your first instalment put in ETF in Gold, Second one Fixed Deposit with Bank, Third one with Mutual fund or in some good A group shares such as L&T, Reliance Industries, ITC, SBI, BHEL, or in diversified in all the above shares.

    Now to investments – You can have a 50-60% allocation to equity and rest to debt. For equity choose diversified mutual funds as core holding and mid caps funds as supporting ones to give turbo boost once the markets are up. For debt you can choose debt funds, gilt funds or FMPs from mutual funds or you can use FDs. Remember the interest from FDs are taxable at ones tax slab. For debt funds, you will have to pay 20%indexation benefit or a 10% whichever is lower. So the ceiling is 10 %. You can also use your PPF account to build a retirement corpus. It gives a 8.5 % and is a safe investment compared to others.

    Note: The allocation are all approximate figures arrived by 90-your age formula. The actual allocation should be depending to your needs. First note down your goals then arrive at equity-debt allocation.

    Pl, do your home-work completely safe guard your money and investment.
    if your requirement of the fund is not immediate and can afford to look back at your investment after 2 years, it’s a good choice to diverse between MF and FD. Now NAV’s of MF is low prices but you have to do home work to find best one’s and where the future is heading.
