What types of mutual funds may be suggested?
Mutual funds have underlying securities which determine the risk profile of the mutual fund. The underlying assets for a mutual fund may be equity stocks, bonds, gold, options or other instruments as well.
Equity oriented mutual funds, debt mutual funds or balanced mutual funds may be suggested to the investor depending upon the kind of risk profile they belong to and the goals intended to achieve through the investment.
Are mutual funds liquid enough? Can i get my money back if there’s an emergency?
Some mutual funds like the ELSS funds have a lock in period but apart from such funds, all funds let you withdraw your money by selling the units you own. The money is usually credited to your bank account within 3-7 days, making mutual funds a very liquid investment option.
If you remove your investment before 12 months have passed, you may have to incur an exit load up to 1% on the value of your units on the day you wish to withdraw the investment.
Will my money be locked in for 3 years if i invest in mutual funds?
Not all mutual funds have a lock-in period of 3 years. Only if you specifically invest in Equity-Linked Savings Schemes (ELSS), these funds come with a lock in period of 3 years. You can withdraw your funds by selling the units immediately and you will be able to receive funds within 3 working days.
Do all mutual funds come with tax benefits?
No, deductions under 80C are admissable only through investments made in a specified category of funds covered by this section. Mutual funds may have various kinds of underlying assets but not all types of mutual funds will give you a tax benefit.
If you’re looking for tax free mutual funds or mutual funds to give you tax exemptions, then you must invest in ELSS which come with a 3 year lock in period but also a deduction of Rs. 1,50,000 from your taxable income.
What are SIP’s?
Systematic Investment Plans require you to invest a fixed amount of money for a fixed period of time into the mutual fund to slowly accumulate units enough to make a good investment. You can start an SIP by putting a little amount every month or your desired periodicity, which is automatically debited from your bank account.
This is considered a very beneficial plan because it helps systematically save while accumulating money even if you are starting from Rs.1000 per month. Automating the investment through auto debit feature cuts down the ambiguity and saving becomes a habit.
