If you want to earn some money fast, but do not want to lose out by making a wrong investment, then here is what you should put your cash in. Mutual fund investments are mainly for achieving long-term investment goals. However, certain MF categories can be used for achieving short-term and mid-term money-making goals too. This can be in the form of liquid funds, which are the most preferred choice among the mutual fund investors who want to earn more than the debt funds and other risk-free investment options like bank deposits, Bank FD, etc. Those who want to earn money fast can use the liquid fund option if their investment is for short-term, say tax and investment experts, but be warned that there are certain risks involved.
Elaborating upon the liquid funds Jitendra Solanki, a SEBI registered tax and investment expert said, "Liquid funds are meant for short-term investment as it has an underlined mandate of maximum 91 days means a mutual fund house fund manager can invest your money in those stocks where they have to book profit within 91 days. Earlier, the maximum time period allowed was six months but the time period was made lesser to minimize the risk factor."
