12 Best Mutual Funds to Invest in 2024 (as per Chat GPT)

ChatGPT used to have knowledge limited to information available up to 2021. However, the new ChatGPT allows users to ask questions based on the latest trends. I asked ChatGPT, “Best equity mutual funds to invest in 2024 in India?” and it listed 12 mutual fund schemes along with a few lines about each fund. Many readers previously indicated that ChatGPT would not provide such recommendations; hence, I recorded a video of the response as proof and have included it at the end of the article. In this article, we will list the Best Mutual Funds to Invest in for 2024 according to ChatGPT AI, along with performance metrics and our view on these funds.

Does ChatGPT Really Provide Real-Time Updates Now?

Earlier we wrote about Best Mutual Funds for 2023 as per ChatGPT and there were mixed reactions from readers. Some appreciated and some criticized saying ChatGPT would not provide real time mutual fund recommendations.

Unlike older versions where ChatGPT stated it had knowledge only up to September 2021, the latest version of ChatGPT does not have this restriction. Whether the information is up to date or not is for users to verify. I asked ChatGPT, “Best mutual Funds to invest in for 2024 in India” and it provided a list of funds.
