What is Savings+?

The Savings+ facility is a unique investment instrument that combines the potential benefits of savings and investments in a single offering. It operates as an investment plan where investors can invest a fixed amount from their savings account and these contributions are invested in the Bajaj Finserv Liquid Fund or Bajaj Finserv Overnight Fund.

What are the benefits of investing in Savings+?

Here are 4 benefits of investing in Savings+ to help you understand how to accelerate wealth with Savings+:

  • Higher growth potential: The Savings+ facility can help retail investors determine the surplus cash available in their savings account and invest it into Bajaj Finserv Liquid Fund/Bajaj Finserv Overnight Fund.
  • Lower risk: The Savings+ facility invests in the Bajaj Finserv Liquid Fund, which invests in money market and debt securities with a maturity of up to 91 days, and the Bajaj Finserv Overnight Fund, which invests in money market and debt securities with a maturity of 1 business day. Both schemes allocate funds to investment instruments such as TREPS, certificates of deposits (CDs), commercial papers (CPs) and government treasury bills, and carry a relatively lower level of risk compared to equity oriented mutual funds.
  • Insta-redemption: Unlike traditional investment options like fixed deposits, the Bajaj Finserv Savings+ offers higher liquidity, allowing investors to redeem their investments quickly. Investors can instantly redeem up to Rs. 50,000 or up to 90% of the balance, whichever is lower, within a few seconds.
  • Professional management: The Savings+ facility invests in schemes that is managed by seasoned financial experts who employ a research-driven approach to optimize the return potential while managing risks effectively. Investors who do not have the know-how to leverage market opportunities can take advantage of their expertise.
