Is your money lying idle at Bank Account? Here's what you should do


The reducing bank interest rate, increasing standard of living, growing aspirations, inflation etc compelled us to find appropriate investment product for better return. If you want to grow your money then definitely saving bank account and fixed deposits are not the right option. You have to think twice before doing an FD or keeping money idle at the bank account, ultimately the return on investment (ROI) matters. After-tax, the return is negligible in  FD's. The saving bank account hardly gives any interest to the customer which is even lower than the inflation. Therefore, appropriate investment planning is very essential for parking the surplus or investable amount in investment product rather keeping idle at the bank.

Why you should not keep money at Bank:

It is true that the bank account is traditionally been one of the best and safest option for parking money. Even today at remote places bank account is the best option rather than investing in any investment product. There are people feel safe and also ready to compromise with the return. The ROI of saving bank account and Fixed Deposit account do not grow at the rate which can beat inflation. So in the long run if one does not park money wisely then growing inflation will definitely supersede the bank account interest rate.
