How to Invest in Equity Mutual Funds?
You can invest in equity funds either through lump sum or a systematic Investment Plan (SIP). A lump sum is typically a one-time investment. On the other side, an SIP ensures investment at regular intervals, which can be daily, weekly, fortnightly, monthly, quarterly, half-yearly or annually. However, the monthly frequency can be ideal for most as it helps budget things better.
