Products-Mutual Fund

         The money pooled in by a large number of investors is what makes up a Mutual Fund. This money is then managed by a professional Fund Manager, who uses his investment management skills to invest it in various financial instruments.

          As an investor you own units, which basically represent the portion of the fund that you hold, based on the amount invested by you. Therefore, an investor can also be known as a unit holder. The increase in value of the investments along with other incomes earned from it is then passed on to the investors / unit holders in proportion with the number of units owned after deducting applicable expenses, load and taxes.


There are many a thing that you may desire, from a comfortable lifestyle to securing your children’s future. Investing is what takes you one step closer to achieving these goals. The fact is that merely saving for these desires may not actually help in achieving them. You need to take a certain level of risk, according to the nature of the objective, to ensure that these goals are actually met.
          Usually when a person saves and invests, it would be for any of the following reasons:
1.Capital Preservation
2.Income Generation
3.Capital Appreciation.

            Systematic Investment Plan is an approach to investing within managed investments which involves investing a set of amount at regular intervals rather than investing a larger lump sum amount in one shot. By investing this way you are not attempting to capture the highs and lows of the market but rather the cost of your investment is averaged over a period of time. The essence of SIPs is that when the markets fall investors automatically acquire more units. Likewise they acquire lesser units when the market rises. This means that you buy less when the price is high whereas you buy more the price is low. Hence the average cost per unit drops down over a period of time
