There are no Best Mutual Fund Schemes

by , in

 

The most common misconception when it comes to investing in mutual funds by a retail investor is chasing the ‘best mutual funds’ which ironically is also the major reason for falling investor returns.


There is no such thing as the best mutual fund scheme and if you are in pursuit of one then it is imperative you cut your losses as soon as possible.

 

Often in the pursuit of the ‘best mutual funds’ investors end up with an extremely large number of mutual fund schemes.

Should you invest directly in stocks or equity mutual funds

by , in

 

Whether one should invest in Mutual Funds or Direct Stocks is a very common dilemma faced by investors.


There’s no one right answer for this though, with either mode you would eventually invest in the equity market.


The responsibility when you’re investing in direct stocks is completely yours whereas when you’re investing in mutual funds, the responsibility is divided among different professional experts.

Analyzing IT Sector funds and their recent performances

by , in

 

Whenever the equity markets are on the rise, schemes of a particular fund house are outperforming its peers or when a particular mutual fund scheme or a particular sector is generating extra ordinary returns, a very unique set of investors flock the equity markets.

 

Their uniqueness is in reference to their belief that the equity markets will always be on the rise, a sentiment contrary to empirical evidence since the beginning of the equity markets.

 

It is very easy and simplistic to refer to them as optimists when in reality, greed is the trait in play.

International mutual funds schemes begin accepting fresh investments

by , in

 

Several mutual fund houses have started allowing investments in their international fund schemes which were previously closed.


For the uninformed, SEBI had directed fund houses to stop accepting fresh investments into schemes investing in foreign companies at the beginning of the year.


Now some fund houses are allowing investments only via systematic routes,that is SIP & STP whereas some are also allowing via lumpsum.


Certain fund houses are allowing new investors while some have reopened investments only for current investors.


The rules vary from fund house to fund house so it is better to check prior to investing.
