    Published on September 6, 2022

    A Fixed Deposit (FD) is a safe investment that promises assured returns and safety of capital. It is an investment plan wherein you can deposit a lump sum for a fixed lock-in period and earn interest. There is no apparent risk of loss of principal amount with bank FDs. You will receive the invested amount with compound interest on the maturity date.

    The FD interest rate is factored into the invested capital and investment tenure. Once you fix your lump sum in an FD, you keep earning a fixed interest amount. FD returns remain unaffected by market movement or changes in the interest rate in the market. Banks offer loans against your FDs.
