Investing to meet financial goals is critical, and yet, the vast array of options available in the market can lead to investors getting confused about what is relevant to them.
While some investors prefer to take the mutual fund route to avoid directly investing in shares or debt products, several investors favour mutual funds for the convenience it offers.
But what mutual fund should you choose? Index funds, funds based on market capitalization or thematic funds? Do you want to invest in an equity-oriented fund or a debt-oriented fund?
Additionally, one also needs to decide how often and when they should switch between funds.
A product that fits all, is rare. A Balanced Advantage Fund could help you with most of these problems.
Balanced Advantage Funds can make life easy for a newbie looking to make their first investment in the financial markets.
