Why Invest in a Mutual Fund?

 

There are several reasons why investing in mutual funds is a healthy investment option to achieve one’s investment objective or a financial goal. Some of the benefits are stated a below:

 -          Professionally Managed: The money pooled from investors into a fund is managed by professionals, who have the relevant expertise, experience & resources to actively monitor, research and invest in the underlying securities of the fund in order to achieve the stated objective of the scheme. This helps an investor to save on time and stress of constantly monitoring his/her investments and instead rely on fund managers to manage their portfolio.

 -          Diversified Portfolio: Mutual fund enables investors to invest and hold a wide variety of securities across companies, industries, sectors & asset class at a much lower cost than one could on their own. Through such diversification, mutual fund facilitates lowering the risk during such changing market environment.

Mutual funds allow investors to invest with as low as Rs. 100/- in some schemes, thus availing them to generate wealth through a disciplined investment practice.

 -          Liquidity: Unless an investor invests in an ELSS that is subject to lock in period, it is relatively easier to buy and exit a mutual fund scheme subject to applicability of exit load if any. An investor has an option of redeeming all or a part of their investment at any given time to get the current value of the stocks held.

Also, since AMCs have reduced the minimum subscription amount to their schemes leading to participation from retail investors across geography.
