We are revealing some common myths about mutual fund investments that you should wipe out of your mind and instill the habit of saving for your prosperous future.

Common Myths of Mutual Fund Investments:

  1. Mutual Funds mean Stock Market : This is the biggest myth of many uninformed people that stops them stepping into the amazing world of mutual fund investments. MFs are entirely different from the stock market trading in terms of the process. Stock market requires complete information to trade in it whereas a layman can also invest in the mutual funds and create wealth.
  2. Need a Large Amount to Invest : Investment in mutual funds can be started even with a small amount of Rs. 500 through Systematic Investment Plan (SIP). Therefore, start from today to multiply the value of your money and create a corpus to attain your financial dreams.
  3. Returns are Guaranteed : Many investors have this misconception about MFs that they do not carry any risk and ensure the returns on investment. Fact is, mutual fund investment does not guarantee any returns but it is the excellent management of the fund managers who made the investments less risky, unlike stock trading.
  4. High Rated Schemes Reap Higher Benefits : Again, this is one of the greatest myths of the investors that lead them into wrong investments. There is no such rule that a high rated fund reverts with higher returns. The rating agencies provide star ratings to the various funds on the basis of their past performances and do not site any future forecasting for the funds’ returns or performance. No one can predict the future market movements; the analyst only estimates the probability based on the historical occurrence. Therefore, don’t chase only top-rated schemes, make investment based on your requirements.

  • Get the Debt Away : One more important factor which may create a leakage in your profit books is the debt portion. You must always try to be away from debts, and if you already have any then try paying it off soon rather paying the significant amounts of interest on it.
