Frequently Asked Questions

What are equity funds?

Equity funds are schemes which concentrate their investments in shares of companies of different market capitalization

What is recommended investment duration?

What are liquid funds?

Liquid funds is a type of mutual funds which have a very short maturity period, not more than 91 days. The shorter maturity period, makes it almost a risk-free investment. Investing in mutual funds will give you higher returns as compared to a savings account which generally offer interests below 4%. At the same time, you can get your money out of liquid funds any time without any penalty or cost.

What are ELSS funds?

ELSS funds are tax saving mutual funds, in which majority of the funds are invested in equity schemes. ELSS has a lock-in period of 3 years. ELSS has benefits over other conventional tax saving instruments like FDs, NPS, etc. It has the lowest lock in period and the returns are higher than the other tax-saving schemes.

What are Balanced/ Hybrid funds?

Hybrid funds are mutual funds in which the fund manager allocates your money in both equity and debt in a certain ratio. The ratio is decided when the fund is announced and it remains constant throughout.

What are annualized returns?

The return for a period more than 1 year is annualized. For instance, a 3-Year Return (annualized) of 18% means the fund gave 18% return each year, on an average, for the last 3 years. An initial investment of Rs 1000 would have grow into: Rs 1000*1.18*1.18*1.18 = Rs 1643 in 3 years.

What is a lock-in period?

It is the period for which your money will remain locked in the mutual fund. Most mutuals do not have any lock-in period. ELSS, Tax-Savers, come with a lock-in of 3 years which is the lowest compared to other 80C investment options.

Should I choose Monthly SIP or One time investment?

An SIP allows you to invest a fixed sum regularly in mutual fund(s) of your choice. A one-time investment is when you invest on-time in bulk in mutual fund(s). SIP comes with few advantages: It allows you to invest small amount every month without the stress of paying in bulk. Investing all through the year averages the cost of investing - you don?t end up paying too much per unit of mutual fund. Gives you financial discipline

How much time will it take to get the folio number after the payment?

It takes 2-3 working days to get the folio number once we receive the payment and transaction is processed to the respective Fund House.
