Financial freedom for Indians: what it means and how to achieve it

As India celebrates the 75th Independence Day, Business Standard spoke with three experts to understand what financial freedom is and how people can achieve it. For most people, such freedom means having the financial cushion of savings, investments, and cash. Add to that a decent nest egg for retirement or the freedom to pursue any career without having to earn a certain salary. Start investing as early as possible, invest in all asset classes, save some for rainy days, and plan for retirement when retirement seems a long way off.

“If investing confuses you, go for the fund of funds”
