  1. Dear Sir,
    Is it possible to buy this MF online?

    1. All Mutual funds can be purchased online. You can login to your MF account, go to MF section and click on New Fund offers and you would be able to purchase them online.

  2. plz,sen d ur Auth Repr for an open dialogue with the aofesaid MF tomorrow.

  3. If nobody invest in new funds how can anyone get the funds with 3 year track record? Has not any scheme which was new and somebody invested it, performed well in future? This is like no experience, no job But how will one get experience without getting a first job?

    1. Its the risk investors take. Also many investors does not know there are better options, hence invest in such NFO’s.

  4. pls elaborate on the kotak stock lending & borrowing mechanism (SLBM) whereby you can lend your stocks thru kotak SLBM & earn rent,dividend & appreciation on your stocks.minimum margin amount is Rs25000 & the offer period is from 19thaugust to 19th september2016.

  5. Suresh jiii… i have got a doubt.. why cant we invest in these new schemes.. nav of 10rs.. lowest and if by luck it increases to 15 rs in 3 years.. a single investment of 10k would become 15k..  where as in established mf… say now nav is 25rs and after 3 years it becomes 30rs..  amount of 10k would become 12k only in 3 years..  

    1. If the NAV of this fund is Rs 10 and the companies invested by this mutual fund appreciated by Rs 15, means 50%. Assume existing fund also invested now where stock price appreciates by 50%, its NAV also would go by 50% right?  So don’t think about low NAV Mutual fund schemes. It all matters in which company such MFs are investing and whether they are investing at right time or not

      1. Respected Mr Suresh, 

        i m investing in mutual fund since oct 2016. my age is 37 years, previously i was not aware and not confidenet about investing in mutual Funds.

        but luckily i got around your blog and after reading your posts i got some confidence to invest in mutual Fund. i would like to thank you from my deeper corner of heart for providing us a indepth knowledge in very very simple language.

        now the main question?

        i have started to invest 7000  per month through SIP From Oct -2014.

        following are the funds in which i am investing:

        1) IDFC premeir Equity fund-Growth (Regular) monthly sip Rs 2000 

        by today the total cost of investments are Rs 48,000 and the current Value is Rs 53,570.74

        i want to know whether i have selcted the right portfolio, should i quit any of the above fund.

        i want to earn 2-3 crore in 10-15 years.

        Please Suggest your kind words.








        1. Dear Mr Ali,

          It is not possible to created wealth of 2-3 Cr by investing INR 7000 per month in next 15 years. You can expect returns of 12-15 % per annum from MF. If you get higher returns then it is partly luck & partly your smartness.



        2. To get 1 cr after 10 year how much I have to invest every month. Should I paid lump sum every year or do sip every month.

      2. Very good and clear response. Thanks.
