Anoop asks:

What is the difference between an Ordinary Mutual Fund and HDFC’s Top 200 Mutual Fund?

I’ll answer a slightly different question — Why I chose the HDFC Top 200 Fund for my portfolio as opposed to another Mutual Fund?

My reasons:

  • Had been on my radar for the past year (while I was consolidating — and planning to restructure — my finances).
  • Consistently appeared as a consistent performer in all my research.
  • An excellent long-term track record (10+ years) — no fly-by-night performances.
  • Tailored to my investment beliefs — no esoteric investment methodologies.
  • Rated “Elite” on Morningstar India.

Over to you.

What do you look for when picking up a mutual fund investment?

Hi,

I have a similar query as Ahmer. I want to do a SIP which give me a decent return after a stipulated period of time. Confused between HDFC top 200 fund and LIC Samridhi plus. Kindly suggest which one would be better with good returns and low risk.

Thanks
