Mahindra Unnati Emerging Business Yojana Midcap – Should you invest?
There is nothing wrong in trying in new mutual fund offers. However, one should ask themselves, what is the objective of investing in such mutual fund scheme. If you think that this MF NAV is Rs 10 and want to invest, then you are wrong. There is no where it has proven that one should invest in Low NAV Fund. Like I always say, one should invest in consistent performing mutual funds which proved the performance in various market cycles. Invest in long term funds that have come out from severe market crashes and providing higher returns in the medium to long term. If there are already proven midcap mutual fund schemes in the market, why to try with new ones? Think, Think, Think…..
