Advantages of Mutual Funds Investing

Share |
Investors often get confused in choosing Mutual Funds over stocks or any other investment domain. Mutual Funds Investing has very advantages over other form of investment and has a certain level of risk involved. In this post I would discuss about advantages of investing in mutual funds.

Diversified small investments: Mutual Funds investment is done in various industries which are often from different domains of operations like Auto, Pharma, Oil and Gas etc. This approach helps in reducing loss making risks as if one sector is under pressure then other may be rising, Pharma is sector which is recession proof and evergreen. Also you make small investments and this further reduces the amount of risk you are into.

Lots of choices: Investor can pick a mutual fund which invests in his favourite area of expertise. This can vary from one investor to another according to their profile and risk taking guts.

Well Regulated Mutual Funds: Mutual funds are well regulated and governed by rules and regulations made by SEBI, which are designed to protect the interests of the investor. Distributors or Advisors who advise investors on which mutual finds to invest in are also required to be compulsorily AMFI certified i.e. they are required to pass certain uniform tests that will ensure their knowledge and expertise to advise other people. Mutual Funds are also managed by professionals.

Tax Saving Advantages: dividend from Mutual funds is presently non-taxable

So be smart investor and invest in Mutual Funds.

I have already posted on mutual funds investing tips couple of times and continuing the same here too.

Here is my another post on Mutual funds basics and Mutual Funds Investing tips. This post should be read and understood along with my following posts on mutual funds:

Mutual Funds Investing tips
How Mutual Funds work

There are many different types of mutual funds available in market,One mustsee the NAV value of the mutual fund.

Here are Types of Mutual funds availabe:

Money market Mutual funds

These are the safest type of mutual fund because they invest in cash. You deposit a fixed amount for a fixed period of time, ranging anywhere from 30 days to one year, and you’re almost certainly guaranteed a fixed rate of return. You’ll typically earn about 2% to 3% more interest than if you place your money in a high interest savings account.

A money market fund is right for you if you are conservative with your money and have a low tolerance for risk when it comes to investing.

Fixed income Mutual funds

This type of mutual fund invests in a combination of government and corporate securities, such as treasury bills, bonds and mortgages. They provide fixed periodic payments with the possibility of some capital gains. These funds are usually low risk and dependable overall; however, their value is affected by changes in interest rates.

A fixed income fund is right for you if you are looking for a relatively safe way to introduce yourself to investing and security, stability and moderate returns are also important investment goals for you.

Balanced Mutual funds

These funds include a little bit of everything—stocks, bonds, cash and mortgages—in order to provide a combination of income and growth. These funds seek to maximize the growth potential of your investment while preserving the capital.

A balanced fund is right for you if you are looking for long-term growth possibilities with stability. Balanced funds tend to be costly but can be a worthwhile investment if want a diversified portfolio in one fund and you don’t want to manage your own asset mix or don’t have an advisor to do it for you.

Dividend based Mutual funds

These funds are designed specifically to provide maximum dividend opportunity. A dividend is how a company pays the people who own its stock. Dividend funds invest in high-quality common shares from blue chip companies (i.e., well-established, financially-sound companies), such as Reliance Industries or Infosys for example, and preferred shares. There is the potential for long-term capital growth. Dividend funds also receive preferential tax treatment, which reduces the amount of tax an investor has to pay on capital gains.

A dividend fund is right for you if you have an interest in investing in corporations and receiving any profits made by the fund on a regular basis.

All about Mutual funds Investing

Mutual Funds For Dummies (For Dummies (Business & Personal Finance))

This post for Mutual funds investing can be considered as continuation to my previous posts for tips on Mutual Fund investing, which can be found hereMutual fund investing tips and is related to my other posts on Mutual funds whose links are below(So that you can know each and everything about What Mutual Funds are? How they work? Top 10 Indian Mutual Funds or you may want to know about Mutual Funds companies present in India.

You can use this post as a tutorial for starting investing your money in Mutual Funds but using your own brain is atmost important.

I'll start with a very basic question which will clear some air about what Mutual funds investing is?
A company which brings a Mutual Fund issue in market requires money to invest in various domains which can range from Infrastructure, technology, Govt Bonds, Share markets etc etc. The difference is only our money for investing would be negligible as compared to pool of money which the company collects from various Mutual Funds investors. This helps in getting advantages available for large investments as compared to smaller investments.

The other question which arrives about Mutual Funds is about the Net Asset value or NAV for Mutual Fund so what is Net Asset Value (NAV) of a mutual fund?
- The Net Asset value of a Mutual Fund is Market value of the Assets of Mutual Funds or indirectly we can say NAV is profit which a Mutual Fund has made after subtracting all the liabilities, Managing company's fees or commision and other taxes. You can estimate your share of the holding of the mutual fund by the Net Asset Value per unit. So it is always important to know about NAV rather the return percent in order to invest in Mutual Funds, Majority of the MF Agents just donot talk about NAV's and fool the potential investor by simply talking of return percent which is of no use at all.

Now I hope you are clear about NAV's and Mutual Funds I would explain how a Mutual Fund actually works?
It's rather simple to understand how a Mutual Fund works, A Company which floats a Mutual fund in market hires professional's or they may be it's own employees. When they get investors money then the Professional's decide where to invest, but in many cases it is predefined in which sector they will invest investors money, you may have heard like, Equity funds, Infrastructure funds etc , These are nothing but investment funds with predefined domain of investment. And the investors invest by seeing the Net Asset value of the mutual Funds, The higher the NAV more expensive it would be to invest. The advantage of MF investing is that since a particular individual invest in very small amounts the risk is very less of a bankruptcy of that investor(in case of loss).

I hope by now you are very much clear about all the basic questions about Mutual Funds and Mutual funds investing, you are now ready to follow tips for Mutual Fund Investing.
HAPPY Mutual Fund Investing!!
