Should you invest in these Tata 5 NFOs – Own a piece of India


There is nothing wrong in experimenting to invest in new fund offers (NFO). However, let us take a step-back. There is no guarantee these would provide good returns in future. Instead, check for existing funds which has already proven and providing good returns in various market cycles and in various political changes. I feel one should invest in such proven funds. I would prefer to invest in proven best investment plans. I would personally stay away from such NFO’s as of now.
