Why invest in Mutual Funds?

Mutual Funds offer a range of unique advantages unmatched by most other investment avenues.

Expert Management:
Mutual Funds are managed by qualified and experienced professionals, who have access to company research, analysts, critical and timely market information and methodology to make sound investment decisions. They are best qualified to identify and maximize investment opportunities.

Reduced risks:
By diversifying your portfolio, Mutual Funds help you reduce the overall investment risk. To achieve a comparable diversification when you invest directly in equities, you would need to invest a huge amount. Mutual funds offer you diversification across asset classes as well as within a specific asset class.

Speedy access to your money:
Investors in open-ended mutual funds can buy and sell units at Net Asset Value (NAV) related prices which are declared on a daily basis on all working days.

Since the minimum amount to be invested in a mutual fund is low, you get access to a diversified portfolio even with a very small amount of money.

Tax benefits:
Equity Linked Savings Schemes (ELSS) offer tax rebates to investors under Section 80C of the Income Tax Act. Also, Dividend income from Equity and Equity-oriented Mutual Funds is tax-free in the hands of the investor.

Low costs:
Mutual Funds benefit from economies of scale in brokerage, custodial and other fees translating into lower costs for investors.

Since the fund portfolios are disclosed to investors on a regular basis, Mutual Funds are a transparent investment vehicle.

Regulated for investor protection:
The Mutual Funds sector is regulated to safeguard investor interests.

  • Equity-Linked Saving Scheme (ELSS)

    An Equity-Linked Saving Scheme (ELSS) is a great investment option that offers twin benefits of tax saving and capital gains.

    It enables you to enjoy tax benefits of up to Rs. 46,350* under Section 80C of the Income Tax Act. Apart from that, ELSS has certain distinct advantages:

    • Compared with all the tax planning schemes available today, ELSS has the shortest lock-in period (3 years) under Section 80C.
    • As with an equity fund, ELSS funds invest a large part of the fund in equity. With the Indian economy possessing strong fundamentals and corporate earnings showing strong growth potential, equities as an asset class look set to provide attractive returns.
    • Thanks to the 3 year lock-in period, ELSS allows the fund manager to build a portfolio for the long-term without worrying about everyday redemptions. Equity investments have proven to offer the best returns among various asset classes over a long term horizon.
    • The profits on the sale of ELSS units are treated as long-term capital gains, and as per current tax laws, these are not subject to tax. Also, as per the current tax laws, there is no dividend distribution tax on equity investments and dividends earned are tax free in the hands of the investor.

    *The tax rate applied is 30.9%.
