- Check the list here and invest in what you think is the best for you
Mutual funds are one of the great tools for wealth creation over time. Actually, these are a pool of money collected from several small, mid and large scale investors. The money so collected is dispersed across a wide range of financial instruments such as stocks, bonds, debentures, etc.
Broadly, there are three types of mutual funds – equity funds, debt funds and hybrid funds. While equity funds keep the money predominantly in equity and equity-related instruments to appreciate the growth of investor capital, debt funds invest the money mostly in debt instruments such as bonds, debentures, money-market securities to ensure stable returns for investors. In between these two, there are hybrid funds that allocate the assets in both equity and debt instruments for capital appreciation and regular income generation.
Doesn’t matter which category of mutual fund you go for, you should look at the rating it is assigned by the agencies. The rating, which is given in 1-5 stars, is an indicator of how the particular fund has performed over the years. A good rating means the fund has 3-5 stars. This post will explain as to how can you invest in top-rated mutual funds. But, before that, you should know which are those top-rated mutual funds available right now.
