What does investing in HDFC Debt Mutual Funds actually mean?

Suppose a mutual fund invests in ten stocks and total current market value of these stocks is 1.1 Crore. Out of this, the AMC deducts say, 0.1 Crore for operating the fund (this is known as the expense ratio). So the net value is 1 crore. Now the AMC will divide this 1 Crore into say, 10,000 parts. These parts are known as units. The cost of one unit is 1Cr/10,000 = Rs. 1000. This is known as the Net Asset Value (NAV) of the mutual fund. Suppose the AMC has set a minimum investment requirement of Rs. 500. Then if you pay Rs. 500, you will get 0.5 units of the fund. Remember that the cost of one unit is the cost when you made the purchase. Suppose after one year, the NAV has fallen to Rs. 700 per unit and you wish to exit the fund (also known as redemption), then you sell your 0.5 units back to the AMC and get 0.5 x Rs. 700 = Rs. 350 back. Yes, you invested Rs. 500 and got back Rs. 350 – a loss of 150 over a year. The point is, that you buy units at current NAV and sell units (fully or partially) at current NAV. This is what investing in mutual fund actually means.

How to invest in HDFC Mutual Funds on Groww?

One of the best ways to hedge against the small-cap volatility is to adopt a phased approach, also known as Systematic Investment Plan (SIP) approach. We are sure that you must be aware of SIP and its benefits. Buying in small quantity but buying regularly provides you with faster growth. On Groww.in, all transactions to and from AMC is done via BSE. When you decide to invest in a large cap mutual fund of your choice, you choose that mutual fund on the website and click ‘invest’. Following that, you are redirected to the BSE page where you make the payment. BSE then directs your money to the AMC managing your mutual fund. To be assured at your end, you can visit the individual AMC website after the payment. You would be able to see all your purchased units against your folio number.
