  5. Hi,
    I’m looking for a Mutual Fund investment through SIP mode.
    My investments would be around 5000 per month for a period of 5 years.
    Please suggest a MF which has potential high returns and low additional charges(entry, exit etc.)basis my requirements.

  6. Hi Saumya,

    It’s nice you are interested in mutual funds investments.I assume you are a first time investor. So to go with mutual fund you can choose any good balanced fund(e.g HDFC balanced fund) and a diversified multicap fund(e.g Franklin India Prima Plus Fund). In my opinion you can invest 2,500 each in both funds.

    Regarding your second question of exit load most funds have around 1% exit load before one year and after one year there is no exit load for equity mutual funds. You can invest in these funds either through a broker or in direct way by going to the Fund House.The more the time duration better will be the returns.
