In this episode of Mutual Fund Corner, Shweta Rajani, Senior Vice President & Head-Mutual Funds at Anand Rathi Wealth and Anubhav Srivastava, Partner & Senior Fund Manager at Infinity Alternatives help us understand are banking funds a good long-term are bet.
Rajani and Srivastava also answer other mutual fund queries.
