Mutual Funds are the most common investment options available to Indian investors. These funds are managed by professionals and provide diversified exposure to a wide range of assets, including real estate, commodities, debt, and equity securities.

The objective of mutual funds is to periodically invest in securities that have a high rate of return but also have limited risk. 

Mutual funds offer several advantages over stocks and bonds: they allow you to invest in assets that may not be available to you as an individual, they are tax efficient because they do not require interest payments and they help reduce volatility by providing stability through regular cash flows.

Mutual funds also provide diversified exposure to a range of asset classes since they typically hold different types of securities rather than just one investment type such as stock or bond.

What Kind of Mutual Funds Should Conservative Investors Look For? 

For investors who have a conservative style of investment, the time period of investment is generally short. The liquidity needed is generally high and this makes them prone to market volatility. We often get psychologically moved when the markets swing downwards or even if there is a low return in a short frame of time. In this situation, what are your best options?

Here is when debt and hybrid funds come to your rescue. Debt funds are the safest category as they invest in government securities. Hybrid funds, on the other hand, invest in both equities and debt, so here you get the best of both worlds, literally.

Now, if an investor wants to invest in equities, but at the same time does not want to take a large amount of risk, then large cap funds should be the go-to option. Although the investor should keep in mind that if he/she wants to invest in large-cap funds, the suggested investment duration is at least 4-5 years.

Conservative Investor Meaning and Conservative Investment

A conservative investor is one who seeks to preserve the value of their investments and avoid high-risk, high-return schemes. Depending on the type of scheme being considered, these investors will be looking for a range of characteristics that can help them in finding the right investment. 

These are the types of mutual funds which offer returns that are stable and reliable over long periods of time. They tend to hold less risky stocks; therefore, their returns tend to be steady over time.

Conservative mutual funds and schemes may not appeal to everyone but they can be very beneficial for those who want a higher return on their investment but don't mind the lower risk involved in investing their money in such schemes.
