Q: Jaydev Parmar wants to invest his money in mutual funds, but he doesn't know where to invest and how?
A: Given that you are a beginner, you should first try and understand the investment proposition that mutual funds offer. There are various categories of mutual funds and each of them offers a differentiated investment proposition. The two broader categories are equity and debt, wherein equity funds offer high-risk high return investment proposition; whereas debt fund is less risky and deliver fewer returns compared to equities.
Equity and debt funds are further classified into various categories with each having different investment mandate, style and return pattern. One should try and get a mix of asset classes and market segments to get a balanced portfolio.
For investing, the primary thing is to understand one’s requirement and risk appetite, set achievable investment objective, get the asset allocation in place and then based on that select funds and invest. The process is a complex one for an individual to carry put on his own. Therefore, you should consider opting for the services of a financial advisor who can help you with drafting your financial plan and making investments.
