Overview – Top 10 diversified mutual funds in India for 2013
There is a negative impression for some of my friends about mutual funds investments in current scenario. Stock markets (SENSEX) have given 8% overall return in the last 3 years which would mean less than 3% per annum. However, I am positive on the diversified mutual funds investments. When I was analyzing the top diversified mutual funds, they have given annualized returns of 9% to 16% in the last 3 years.
What are diversified mutual funds?
Diversified mutual funds invest the money across all the sectors stocks like Banking, Financial services, manufacturing, Pharma, Technology, Healthcare, airlines etc. However the average annual returns among diversified mutual funds are only 4.5%. There are several diversified mutual funds who are under performers and can be eliminated from the group to arrive at actual average returns among the diversified funds.
How we have chosen the best diversified mutual funds:
- Past performance: We have considered past performance where the mutual fund has yielded 9% to 16% annualized returns. When Sensex has given 3% annualized returns in the last 3 years, annualised returns of 9%+ would definitely be a good investment options.
- Crisil rating: These are rated by Crisil as rank-1 and rank-2, hence it provides highest safety compared to other diversified mutual funds.
- High Assets under management (AUM) : High AUM refers that more people are investing in such mutual funds as it gained confidence from large investors. We have considered AUM > Rs 85 crores for the purpose of choosing the best diversified mutual funds.
- Long term players: All these mutual funds are existing for more than 5 years, hence they are long term players.
