Mutual Funds

A mutual fund is simply a financial intermediary that allows a group of investors to pool their money together with a predetermined investment objective. The mutual fund will have a fund manager who is responsible for investing the pooled money into specific securities (usually stocks or bonds). Mutual funds are one of the best investments ever created because they are very cost efficient and very easy to invest in (you don't have to figure out which stocks or bonds to buy).
Liquid & Short Term: Investments in the range of one to ninety days which provide easy liquidity and ease of transaction. Short Term Income Funds: These invest in a mix of corporate & PSU debt and aim to deliver fixed deposit plus returns in the short term Bond Funds: These invest in longer duration bonds or corporates, PSUs, Government Agencies, RBI and Government of India. These aim to deliver interest accrual plus capital appreciation. Bonds funds require understanding the interest rate and maturity curve. Bonds deliver positive returns in a falling interest rate scenario and negative in a rising interest rate scenario. Balanced Funds: These invest in a mix of equity and debt. They can be of two types equity oriented and debt oriented. Balanced funds are geared toward investors who are looking for a mixture of safety, income and modest capital appreciation. Equity Funds: An equity fund is a mutual fund that invests principally in stocks. Equity mutual funds may be categorized according to company size (small cap, mid cap or large cap), the investment style of the holdings in the portfolio (index, sector, etc.), or geography (international or domestic).
