Top 5 Equity Mutual Funds (seeing 10 yrs SIP returns)
We all invest for the long term in order to build a substantial corpus for various financial goals. And during this journey, mutual fund SIPs have been the optimal instrument to use, since they offer both disciplined and regular investing through their systematic investment option. Additionally, because we are discussing equities schemes in particular, SIPs invested at different times, i.e. when markets are rising or falling, permit cost averaging. 1. Nippon India Small Cap Fund: Mutual fund plan from the house of Nippon India has Rs. 17197 crore in assets under management. The fund's cost ratio is 1.81 percent. The fund's performance is compared to that of the NIFTY Smallcap 250 TRI index. SIPs in the programme can be initiated with as little as Rs. 100, and there is a 1% exit load penalty in the event of redemption within 30 days. The fund's assets are allocated among big, mid, and small size equities, having a small cap exposure of more than 73%.
