All parents dream of fulfilling all the requirements and desires of their kids. They want to give the best to their juniors. Best of education, best of toys, best of health, best of everything! The only problem with these best things is that these have the best price tags too!
But what can a father do, after all it is about the child's future. Or is this really the case? Maybe something could have been done. Think of a parent who started planning for their kid even before it was born and begun investing when the little one arrived. They had a pretty long time (about 18 years for higher studies and 25 years for marriage and house). It is no-brainer in investment world that the sooner we start, the better it is, and for a very basic reason - the magic of compounding.
For passive investors, those who find stock symbols like chemical formula, investing directly in equity mutual funds could be a preferred option.
Also to reap benefits of tax allowance on investments and their disposal, one can allocate some amount to products like Public Provident Fund.
