    Hello Suresh Sir,
    I really enjoy reading your every articles and they are really very useful.
    I have one question:
    I am thinking to invest in ULIP (TATA AIA Fortune Pro – Income fund and Midcap fund).
    Could you please advise how is this plan and shall I invest in this plan ?
    I am planning for 10-15 years of long term investment.

    I am also planning to invest for 5 years if you could suggest me something for that ?

    Looking forward to hear from you.

    Thanks.

    • Hi Jalpesh, This is not mutual fund. This is ULIP fund. It has various charges i.e. premium allocation charges, mortality charges, fund management fees etc., Any reason you want to invest for ULIP instead of Mutual Fund. One can choose ULIP provided these are available at zero or low premium allocatoin charges

    Hi Suresh,

    Please suggest about UTI ETF regular fund. Is it worthwhile to invest in this fund? If yes, then what is minimum and maximum amount limit to invest monthly. Alternatively, will it be beneficial to invest lumpsum amount in this scheme.

    Your valuable suggestion is much appreciated.
