5 Best 3-Year Fixed Deposits For Regular & Senior Citizens

|

Term deposits are popularly called risk-free instrument because of their guaranteed returns for all types of investors. The capital invested in a Fixed Deposit Scheme is only made once when the account is created for a specific amount of time, and the interest earned on it is determined by the type of bank, tenure, and depositor. A fixed deposit can be opened for as little as seven days or as long as 10 years, and senior citizens receive higher FD interest rates than non-senior citizens, ranging from 0.25 per cent to 0.65 per cent respectively. Money market funds, certificates of deposit (CD), bond funds, and even bank fixed deposits are viable investment choices if you have a three-year or less time period for your investment or personal finance goals. All of these investments, except bank FDs, are risky. So, if you're a risk-averse investor with a three-year financial planning objective, here are the five best-fixed deposits to invest in.
