You know how to earn, save money but confused while investing? Tired of comparisons, experiments, researches, enquiries and still not sure? Don’t worry, as per our experience with clients, it’s very common. While some want to stick to traditional options like RD, FD, gold, others wish to explore in financial markets for higher returns. But the barrier here is lack of knowledge. A solution to this can be mutual funds.

About 60% of our new clients do not know what mutual funds actually do, hence we thought of writing this for awareness. 

Mutual funds pool investors’ money, manage professionally to invest in the money market and securities.  In simple words, many investors, retail or institutional pool their money in mutual funds, which are run by Asset Management companies like HDFC mutual fund, UTI mutual funds etc. These AMCs hire professionals known as fund managers to manage these funds, that is, invest in different financial products and the returns are given back to investors after deducting 1-2% fees. 

The advantages of investing in mutual funds are:

  • Professional management: Experts manage your funds.

  • Diversification: Even small amounts can be diversified.

  • Liquidity: You can withdraw money at any time.

  • Tax benefit: The dividends received in hand are tax free.

  • Wide range of choices: You can choose schemes as per risk appetite, liquidity required and tax position.

  • Higher returns: Typically ranges between 8-18% for long term investments.

 

The process to invest in mutual funds is very simple

Investor 1

Investors need to contact either distributors or directly AMCs. Distributors study investors’ risk appetite and liquidity required and recommend schemes. Since there are many types and options in every AMC’s schemes for example 

  • As per portfolio:

    • Equity: Small, mid, large cap

    • Debt: Small, mid, large duration 

    • Hybrid

  • As per management:

    • Active

    • Passive

  • As per organisation:

    • Open ended

    • Close ended

    • Interval

All the schemes are subject to market risks. Every scheme publishes its offer document. Investors need to read those documents. Distributors study these documents and performances so you can ask for advice. 

 

Mutual funds are best solutions for those who want to invest in money markets and securities for higher returns but lack knowledge and time.

What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Why do we use it? It is a long-established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using ‘Content here, content here, making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for ‘lorem Ipsum will uncover many websites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).

Where does it come from? Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, “Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..”, comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

The standard chunk of Lorem Ipsum used since the 1500s is reproduced below for those interested. Sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 from “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” by Cicero are also reproduced in their exact original form, accompanied by English versions from the 1914 translation by H. Rackham.
