Mutual funds are an investment option that offers easy access, liquidity, straightforward exits, and remove investment management risk from the individual investor as professional fund managers manage them

A mutual fund is an investment vehicle that pools funds from investors and invests in equities, bonds, government securities, gold, and other assets. Companies that qualify to set up mutual funds, create Asset Management Companies (AMCs) or Fund Houses.

Mutual fund returns (capital gains) are subject to tax, known as capital gains tax. Capital gains tax will impact when you choose to redeem your investment; like in the example above you will be liable to pay a tax on the Rs 500 you have earned.

Investment of up to Rs. 1,50,000 in ELSS mutual funds qualifies for tax benefit under section 80C of the Income Tax Act, 1961. Mutual fund investments, when held for a longer term, are tax-efficient.

Sign up using email and OTP. Select fund. Enter the investment amount. Choose the investment type: one-time (lump sum) or SIP. Enter PAN, and full name, and verify mobile number.

Mutual funds generally levy an exit load (fee) for redeeming investments within a specified time period, for example, one year from the date of investment. This is done to refrain the investor from exiting the scheme too early.

Theoretically, yes. But if you stay invested long enough, that possibility goes down to almost zero.

When it comes to mutual funds, an investor can make money in two possible ways: income earned from dividends on stocks and price increase of the stock.

All that an investor has to do is log in to his online mutual fund account, press the redemption button, and confirm the transaction. The redemption amount will be credited to his bank account within the turn-around time.

The purpose of investing in mutual funds is to earn higher returns than what traditional investments offer. These higher returns are mainly because of more extensive market exposure and professional fund management.
