|

When we talk about finance, most of people think the stock market, gold, real estate, etc and these are good. Some financial products are underrated and on the other hand, there are some which are overrated. Stocks and gold are highly overrated financial products across the world by the majority. However, their products like emergency funds, retirement funds, mutual funds, and so on are underrated because they don't promise high returns. Although, thinking about only returns could be a bad choice. There are some scenarios where these underrated financial products could be a huge success in helping you out.
Below we highlighted the top 5 most underrated financial products in India, particularly.

 

Emergency Fund

Emergency Fund

An emergency fund is now considered underrated, previously it was one of the most overrated financial tools. Our parents use to keep a certain amount of their earnings aside as emergency funds. There are a number of reasons why an emergency fund is important, but a medical emergency is one of the most compelling reasons to set aside money for an emergency fund. When you're already dealing with a medical problem, having an emergency fund may relieve a lot of stress. Because of all the sick days, there may be reduced or no salary. As a result, an emergency fund can help in such a situation. Also, in case of any financial crises, emergency funds could be a great help. It will alleviate the stress of skipping bills while also allowing you to focus on your monthly budget.

Health Insurance
 

Health Insurance

In India, insurance penetration is low, notably for general insurance, which includes coverage for liability, motor vehicles, property, and health. However, it is critical that more individuals purchase general insurance. The danger of illness, accidents, catastrophes, and lawsuits is reduced by a well-developed general insurance market. The IMF recognized weak insurance penetration as a critical industry problem in its April 2018 technical paper on insurance sector regulation and supervision. Furthermore, in India, a common person spends heavily on medical bills. Having health insurance could be controlled.

Mutual Fund Investment

Mutual Fund Investment

This might surprise most of you. However, it is true in India. Because of the system we have in India, this statement is only half accurate. India has always been a market for tangible assets like gold, currency, and real estate. The financialization of savings, particularly mutual fund investment, has been popular in India in the last five years. Due to the inherent dangers involved with volatility and a lack of market awareness, Indians are not very adept with stocks. Every month, the MF receives close to a crore in investments, primarily through the SIP channel. However, MFs have been underappreciated in India, but that may change in the next ten years, as we may expect exponential growth in this sector, with the government taking a great interest.

Retirement Fund

Retirement Fund

According to the PGIM Retirement Readiness Survey 2020, the majority of Indians do not have a retirement plan in place. PGIM performed a poll in February 2020 to see if Indians are saving for their golden years. It may be costly to grow old. In India, the majority of people after retirement depend on their children, whereas only a few between 1/3 and 1/4 plan for their retirement. Retirement funds are an important financial product as with time expenses grow and depending on children or anyone is not advisable. The future is uncertain, medical expenditures are only going to climb, despite the fact that frivolous expenses may decrease. When inflation is factored in, not having enough money to cover future needs may be stressful and worrying. The goal of a retirement investing strategy is to achieve financial independence in your later years without relying on others.
