When it comes to your investments, regardless of the name of the scheme you choose, it’s important to know why you’re investing in it.

Count on longer durations for better yields

To benefit from a long tenor, you can also opt for the Auto-Renewal facility. It renews your deposit upon maturity without manual intervention and offers you a renewal bonus amounting to 0.10 per cent extra interest too!

Stay safe so that you can fly high for longer

Makar Sankranti is celebrated by flying kites. Experience will tell you that a secure grip and a conducive environment is essential to keeping your kite flying high long after the other players have accepted defeat. With Bajaj Finance, you can enjoy just this. You benefit from a stable environment and can look forward to a default-free experience. The FD holds an FAAA rating by CRISIL and MAAA by ICRA, which are the highest credibility ratings. Moreover, Bajaj Finance is the only Indian NBFC to carry the international rating of ‘BBB-’ by S&P Global. This means that your finances will soar in 2020, without you having to take on undue risk.

Mark dates to benefit from good financial management

As it follows a solar calendar, Makar Sankranti is one of the few festivals in the country that falls on approximately the same date every year. When it comes to your investments, regularity is a great trait to possess as consistent investments will help you strengthen your finances exponentially.

A way in which Bajaj Finance simplifies this is by allowing you to make periodic deposits. Instead of saving a lumpsum to start investing in an FD, you can opt for its Systematic Deposit Plan and set aside as little as Rs. 5,000 every month! You can contribute bite-sized amounts in an automated fashion on the 3rd, 7th, or 12th of every month, choose the number of deposits you’d like to make, as well as the tenor for your deposits!

If your new year resolution is to supercharge your savings, this tool is the best way to achieve your goal! By laddering FDs through the SDP feature, you can not only create wealth steadily, but also secure periodic liquidity. Opt to make 6–48 deposits and choose a tenor of 12–60 months to get started.

Makar Sankranti marks a time of change and a time to make a positive financial. Simply book a Bajaj Finance online FD by filling a short form. Better your financial health by getting assistance from a Bajaj Finance executive in setting up a winning investment.
