2. Mutual funds enjoy the diversification benefit

 

 

 Mutual funds help in diversifying your portfolio. There is a great saying, "Don't put all your eggs in one basket." This saying means you should not invest all your money in stocks of a single sector. Investing in mutual funds gives you the ownership of 10 different stocks or bonds. The diversified portfolio will be less volatile and helps in growing your money to meet financial goals.

3. Mutual funds are a low cost investment

 

The low investment costs of mutual funds are another advantage, as many investors do not have sufficient resources/money to invest directly in a large number of stocks. Also, investing directly in the capital markets, can be very expensive and requires constant monitoring.

Since mutual funds manage a large number of investments from various investors, cost of investing is distributed. This makes mutual funds less costly, compared to direct investments in the capital market.

 

4. Mutual funds have lower investment thresholds

 

 

You don't need a lot of money to invest in  Mutual funds. They are relatively affordable when compared to investing in 10 different stocks. You can start investing in mutual funds, with as little as Rs 500 a month via SIPs, to achieve long-term equity benefits.

 

5. Mutual funds give transparency and safety

 

 

There is great transparency in mutual fund investments. You will get to know each and everything about your mutual fund investment, before getting into it. Information such as, who is your fund manager, rate of return the fund has given in the last 3-5 years, sectors where it has invested and transaction costs, all are known.

Mutual funds are regulated by SEBI, so that means your investment is in safe hands.

 

6. Mutual Funds offer you liquidity

 

Mutual Funds are a very liquid form of investment. You can sell your mutual fund units whenever you want, to meet financial needs. As soon as you redeem your mutual fund investment, the amount will be credited to your bank account. Mutual funds are far better than other illiquid investments like real estate.

Mutual fund is a very good investment to meet your financial goals such as children's education, marriage, buying a home or saving for retirement. Mutual Funds generally give higher returns than inflation. Be Wise, Get Rich.
