MutalFund

Mutual Fund Mutual funds are a type of certified managed combined investment schemes that gathers money from many investors to buy securities. There is no such accurate definition of mutual funds, however the term is most commonly used for collective investment schemes that are regulated and available to the general public and open-ended in nature. Hedge funds are not considered as any type of mutual funds.

Mutual funds are identified by their principal investments. They are the 4th largest category of funds that are also known as money market funds, bond or fixed income funds, stock or equity funds and hybrid funds. Funds are also categorized as index based or actively managed.

Deposit

A deposit is a financial term that means money held at a bank. A deposit is a transaction involving a transfer of money to another party for safekeeping. However, a deposit can refer to a portion of money used as security or collateral for the delivery of a good.

When an individual deposits money into a banking account, it earns interest. This means that, at fixed intervals, a small percentage of the account's total is added to the amount of money already in the account. Interest can compound at different rates and frequencies depending on the bank or institution.

HealthInsurancePolicy

Health insurance plans reimburse insured customers for their medical expenses, including treatments, surgeries, hospitalization and the like which arise from injuries/illnesses, or directly pay out a certain pre-determined sum to the customer. A health insurance policy offers coverage for any future medical expenses of the customer.

This is an agreement between the insurance company and the customer where the former agrees to guarantee payment/compensation for medical costs in case the latter is injured/ill in the future, leading to hospitalization. In most cases, insurance companies have tie-ups with a network of hospitals, thereby ensuring cashless treatment for patients there.

GeneralInsurance

General insurance or non-life insurance policies, including automobile and homeowners policies, provide payments depending on the loss from a particular financial event. General insurance is typically defined as any insurance that is not determined to be life insurance. It is called property and casualty insurance in the United States and Canada and non-life insurance in Continental Europe. In the United Kingdom, insurance is broadly divided into three areas: personal lines, commercial lines and London market.

The London market insures large commercial risks such as supermarkets, football players and other very specific risks. It consists of a number of insurers, reinsurers, P&I Clubs, brokers and other companies that are typically physically located in the City of London. Lloyd's of London is a big participant in this market.[1] The London market also participates in personal lines and commercial lines, domestic and foreign, through reinsurance.

ACORD, which is the insurance industry global standards organization, has standards for personal and commercial lines and has been working with the Australian General Insurers to develop those XML standards, standard applications for insurance, and certificates of currency.

TermInsurance

Term plans provide peace of mind to you by ensuring that your family is financially secure and independent, in your absence. If you are the person insured, you pay a specific premium amount at fixed intervals during the policy term. In the event of your unfortunate demise during the policy term, your nominees will receive the ‘Sum Assured’ which you had selected while purchasing the plan.

Term insurance is a form of life insurance that is active for a fixed period of time (popularly referred to as the term). These plans are easy to understand and provide financial protection that your family will need if you are no longer around.

New age term plans like ICICI Pru iProtect Smart provide additional protection through optional benefits like Critical Illness Cover and Accidental Death Cover. These benefits can be selected very easily through Term Insurance Premium calculator.
