Mutual funds are the primary and most buzzing investment ideas at present. If you start investing with having a goal in mind, along with if you will remain with it in a disciplined way, there are most chances that you will meet to your goal in pre-decided time. But before investing in any mutual funds you need to check out the following things.




1) Last 5 years performance:-
5 years is a time frame considered as enough long time in the stock market to check the performance of any stock, so it is in mutual funds we need to consider the last 5-year performance. During this period your desire mutual funds return needs to be a minimum of 10-12%. That’s the basic criteria for investing in mutual funds…Otherwise, there are risk-free investment options available who give 6-8% returns. If your mutual fund outperforming the respective index in 5 years, it’s a first yes sign to invest in any mutual funds.

2) Expense Ratio:-
Expense ratio is the amount that mutual fund earning for managing your funds, it is included in your fund’s NAV. Example – if your mutual fund's expense ratio is 2% and you invest 1 lakh Rupees in a year so you will pay 2000 Rupees as expense ratio to your funds. For longer term more than 2% expense ratio throws a big impact on your wealth.
Entry or exit load is also an extra charge fund are charging, mostly 1% exit load applicable if you withdraw your money before a year.

3) CRISIL STAR Rankings:-
More star means great past performance, generally, you need to go with more than 3-star ratings for the right mutual fund. How these rankings consider it’s a long topic so I will make a separate blog on this.

4) Risk Appetite:-

As you know, high risk means high returns and low risk means low returns. 
Riskometer has 5 types of risk

a) Low
b) Moderately low
c) Average
d) Moderately High
e) High

The moderately high risk you need to take to create wealth more than 5-7% on Inflation. 

FD, RD, PPF kind of investments are risk-free investments, but they will give a return of 
6-8% which is around or just above inflation.




5) Fund manager:-
Your fund manager is the person who is solely responsible for your money’s growth. It’s not the big name of a mutual fund but it’s the fund manager who will generate wealth for you. There are examples of the same mutual fund houses that have been delivered underperformed and outperformed the respected index in different fund schemes managed by the different fund managers. Always Google fund manager’s past record, qualification and how long he or she has been associated with your fund before investing.

“Mutual fund Sahi hai” but which one finds out by the above checkpoints.

Paisa bolta hai wishes you happy investing.

आसान आदत से पैसे कैसे बचाएं??

ये BLOG उन लोगों के लिए नहीं हैं जो जन्म से ही अमीर है और जिन्हे FINANCIAL PLANNING  जैसे शब्द से दुर दुर तक कुछ लेना देना नहीं, पर ये BLOG उन लोगों के लिए बहुत उपयोगी है जो पैसों की SAVINGS करना तो चाहते है पर पता नहीं कैसे? या फिर उन लोगों के लिए जो हमेशा COMPLAIN करते रहते है की मेरे पास ENOUGH पैसे नहीं है की कुछ SAVE कर पाऊं या फिर वो लोग जिन्हे महीने के अंत तक पैसो की SHORTAGE रहती हैं।

पैसों को SAVE करने की HABIT कोई COMPLICATED चीज़ नहीं हैं, ये बहुत ही आसान है बस इसको REGULARITY नाम के शब्द से जोड़ दे और फिर देखिये कमाल!!!

ये HABIT को कैसे DEVELOPE करें? बहुत आसान है, आप अपने दिन के सभी खर्च की लिस्ट बनाये और फिर उसमे से वो बिनजरूरी, बेमतलब, फिज़ूल खर्च की तरफ गौर करें जिन्हे आप अगर शायद ना करते तो भी आपकी लाइफ मैं कुछ फर्क नहीं पड़ता, देखिये मैं आपको यहाँ कंजूस होने के लिए नहीं कह रहा हूँ, पर वो खर्च जिसे आप नहीं करोगे तो आपको नुकसान नहीं होगा बल्कि फायदा होगा पैसे बचाने का। और क्योंकि हमें LIST बनाने की आदत नहीं हैं ये फिज़ूल के खर्च को हम कभी TRACK ही नहीं कर पाते।

DIVIDEND वाले MUTAL FUNDS सही है क्या??

हमें STOCKS मैं DIVIDEND अच्छा लगता हैं। फिर हम MUTUAL FUNDS में DIVIDEND वाला OPTION क्यों पसंद नहीं करते, MUTUAL FUNDS भी तो एक तरह से STOCK MARKET की तरह ही काम करता हैं। शायद हम इसके बारे मैं जानते ही नहीं या फिर हमारे FINANCIAL ADVISOR कभी हमें इसके बारे मैं बताते ही नहीं। हम ज्यादातर इसे नकारते हैं, पर सोचो अगर ये नकार ने लायक होता तो ये सारी AMC COMPANIES ने ये DIVIDEND वाला OPTION क्यों रखा?  LETS THROW SOME LIGHT ON IT. 
ये कैसे काम करता हैं? आपके MUTUAL FUNDS की NAV आपके पैसों की PERFORMANCE दिखाती हैं। GROWTH वाले OPTION में NAV मतलब (PRICE + BONUS + EXPENSE RATIO + DIVIDEND), और DIVIDEND वाले OPTION में NAV मतलब (PRICE + BONUS + EXPENSE RATIO) वो DIVIDEND आपको REGULAR हर साल या हर महीने आपको मिलता रहता हे। अब जब आपको REGULAR DIVIDEND चुकाया जा रहा हे इस लिए आपके FUNDS  की NAV की PERFORMANCE GROWTH वाले OPTION की तुलना में कम होती हैं, पर DIVIDEND के REGULAR PAYMENTS से आपको अपने INVESTMENTS के पैसों का फल GROWTH वाले OPTION से पहले मिलने लगेगा। 
Example:- 

Growth (RAM) Divide…
