IPO vs Mutual Funds
If you have no knowledge of the equity markets but are looking to gain from the equity markets, mutual funds are ideal. Investments can be made in Mutual Funds since they provide a wide variety and also the amount of investment can vary as per investor’s preference.
Many mutual funds invest in IPOs – many times at discounted rates that are not available to retail investors.
It is necessary to not get carried away by the hype surrounding IPOs. Don’t jump into IPO if you do not have the necessary skills.
In a mutual fund, a skilled and trained professional handles all investments for you and therefore, you can benefit from the equity markets without spending too much time gaining the skills needed to understand the markets.
- Large Cap Funds– Here the investment is made in large-cap companies. These companies have historically given returns between 12% and 18%. Moderate risk is involved and it is suggested to invest in these funds for more than 4 years.
- Mid Cap Funds–Here the investment is made in mid-cap companies. These companies have historically given returns between 15% and 20%. The risk is slightly more than large-cap funds. It is suggested to invest in these funds for more than 5 years.
- Small Cap Funds– Here the investment is made in small-cap companies. These companies offer 16-22% return. High risk is involved and it is suggested to invest in funds of this category for 6 years or more.
- Balanced Fund– This fund is a combination of equity and debt in its portfolio. Depending on the proportion of investment made in equity and debt, the risk and returns are accordingly determined. It is suggested to invest here for 2 to 3 years. Returns observed in this category of funds ranges from 11% to 14%.
