It compared risk and returns of different assets classes like gold, equity, real estate etc. She further urged the participants to save money and invest smartly so that they could have good returns from the investments.

Most of the people tend to invest in insurance thinking that it is an investment but in reality it is a risk cover and returns are low.

Ms. Basanti Solanki (DBDS – Staff) made the necessary arrangements for this workshop.
