Why ULIPs are not a great investment? (My column in Morningstar)

Recently, my thoughts on ULIPs and why they should be avoided (even by HNIs) were published on Morningstar (India).

In this one, I try to clear the air about the recent change in taxation of maturity amount of ULIPs and why people should avoid such products. More so for HNIs who had till very recently started investing large amounts in ULIP due to their tax benefits (which now stand withdrawn).

So if you are invested or planning to invest in ULIP, then you might like to read this about Why ULIPs are not a great investment

Here is the link to the original article with the same title:
