  1. MUTUAL FUNDS R SUBJECTED TO MARKET RISKS SO READ THE OFFER DOCUMENT CAREFULLY!

    when u have a quote along with any agrrement how would u dare to involve in such a deal.Its like we will take ur children for school excursion and if anything happens to ur child we r responsible says few schools.

    rather trying to invest in mutual funds u can use add extra 200 ruppees and buy 1 grm gold coin every month and i hope u surely understand the gain we have with gold.this is wat i will do.



  2. You can use google to look up ratings on different mutual funds. A number of publications publish their ratings/surveys on a regular basis.

    To help you get started, here’s a link to the search I made on mutual fund ratings on google:

  3. Pankaj,

    Investing Mutual Fund through SIP is a good idea. Presently you have only 1000 per month to SIP so you should be careful when considering the fund. You should go for a fund which is a consistent performer in the past, present and should be in the future.

    You can go for a good Equity fund and below are some well performing equity funds:

    SBI Magnum Contra
    DSP Merry Lynch Opportunities
    Sundaram Select Focus
    ICICI Prudential Infrastructure

    You can expect good returns from these funds. But receiving returns as per your selecting any of the below options:

    If you want income time to time when they declare a dividend, select Dividend option when applying

    If you require money at the end of your final SIP after 5 years, select a growth options

    These are the two options but I am missing the Dividend Reinvestment option purposely because you don’t required that.

    Should monitor the fund performance time to time. it is better to have a portfolio of five good funds other than considering a single fund for long term. Instead, start SIP with a fund this year for next 12 months and start another one by Next year for next 12 months and so on. After 5 years, you will get a portfolio of good funds as well as get safety from possible under performance of any funds in the future.

    As a tail, below are some funds comparatively new with the above mentioned but shown good performance and possible better prospectus in the future:

    1. JM Emerging Fund
    2. SBI Magnum Comma Fund

    Have a study of this fund before investing. Investing without self study and following some one’s advice is not at all recommended and the style for a good investor. Have a well study and research before taking any actions.

    Thinks wisely and act as per that. Be a good citizen and good investor.

    Best wishes..



  4. Find out best performing funds in Diversified Equity fund category. This can be done by checking the performance of a fund over 1 year, 3 year and 5 years horizon. Double check this performance from at least 2 to 3 different sources regarding returns in percentage.

  5. I am purposely giving you a slightly broader context, in how best to put your money to work for you. And there are specific answers to your best MF query too. But please set the context right, first.

    There is nothing like starting early, in your investing life and use the power of compounding to your advantage. To understand power of compounding, consider this excellent article at http://www.valueresearchonline.com/story/h2_storyView.asp?str=4007

    Next, you can invest in a mix of the following strategies, depending on your investing risk profile, as indicated below. Invest only those funds that you do not need. Get in the habit of saving 30-35% of your salary regularly. Create an emergency fund, roughly equal to 4-6 months of regular monthly expenses. Once this is covered, you may have funds that you will not need say for next 3-5 years for regular or emergency expenses. Use these funds to invest wisely. You need to remain invested for the long term, since you want capital growth.

    Conservative Risk Profile (you seem to be of this type; someone who wants his principle to be secure and is looking for a decent growth over the long term)

    1. PPF (Public Provident Fund) – account can be opened with any State Bank of India branch. This gives you a compounded 8% return per year, is currently tax free, and is the safest instrument available. Invest 50% of sparable funds in that

    2. A Balance fund like HDFC Prudence Fund – This Mutual Fund invests in both equity (65%) and debt (35%) instruments. This is one of the safest funds with a great track record of over 14 years, and has been giving a compounding return of around 20-25% per year. This fund has one important virtue: it manages to lose less than the category average in periods of downside. Couple this with its tendency to top charts & you get a safe & sure fund in HDFC Prudence. Invest 30% of the funds in HDPC Prudence.
