What to do
Ulips suits if you are unable to keep investments and protection needs separate. Once bought, it is better to link your savings in Ulips to your long term goal which are at least ten years away. Initially put your premiums in all-equity funds and nearing maturity shift them to less volatile debt funds to preserve the attained growth.
