Every mother deserves a gift on Mother’s Day. However, for the sacrifices that a mother makes the majority of her life in trying to make her child's life better, it’s important to celebrate her not just today but every day.
Financial security and well-being are of utmost importance in today’s challenging times as the world is gripped by the fear of coronavirus. And to secure a mother's financial future, no gift could be better than children investing in equities on behalf of their mothers which offer good returns with time, say experts.
"Since mothers generally believe in saving more than investing, a child can step up and do so on behalf of her mother and help her become financially independent,” suggest Palka Chopra, senior vice-president Master Capital Services.
