Public Provident Fund (PPF) and Equity Linked Saving Scheme (ELSS) are two different types of investments. Though it is difficult to compare the two, the right strategy to invest in these can prove very lucrative for you. Money 9 Helpline hosted Viral Bhatt, founder, Money Mantra to help you understand how you can include PPF and ELSS in your investments
Bhatt: For education purposes, your debt strategy suffices the purpose so you don’t need to separately consider PF for that. ELSS is linked to equities as I explained earlier equity can push the returns over a period of time. Your fund is also good. In the case of arbitrage funds, it is good for liquidity. I would suggest for liquidity keep both arbitrage and liquidity fund in your portfolio. Just don’t depend solely on the arbitrage funds.
