The World Cup is finally over! And life is back to its normalcy before yet another cricket extravaganza will take the nation by storm. The dramatic win in the last few moments of the match, helped the “Champions” create history, yet again. But what came as a pleasant surprise was the winning captain’s speech. While talking about what brought the team together and what made them special, he said “I’ve said we have 15 match-winners. Nobody gave us a chance but every game somebody stepped up and took responsibility.” Basically exhorting the virtues of teamwork, rather than relying on one star player to win matches.
We agree, it is very important for a team to have many good players rather than just one excellent player. In case of this team, the one star we were looking forward to seeing - the one who plays his extravagant brand of cricket with a lot of flair - actually didn’t do much (see, stars don’t always shine, but the team does ? ). Only when almost everyone thought the game has gone out of their hands, another member of the team played unbelievably; to march towards a glorious win.
Just like cricket where there are separate elements of batting and bowling - but everyone plays together in one team, working towards a common goal (read diversification). It is also exactly how your investment portfolio should work, especially when it comes to a ‘risky’ asset class like equity. It is important to have an allocation to equity as it plays a crucial role in long term wealth creation. Investors who want to be in equities but are besieged by the wide array of choices to gain from the long term potential of equity investments and at the same time want to diversify their equity portfolio can look at an equity fund of funds. A Fund Manager uses all his expertise to choose some of the best performing equity funds of his choice and will indirectly invest your money in these funds.
It is very important for investors to select a fund with long term track record, an established research and a well- defined investment process.
Quantum Equity Fund of Funds (QEFOF) is one such scheme! QEFOF invests in different equity schemes of other mutual funds. Not necessary these funds follow the value style of investing like Quantum Long Term Equity Fund (QLTEF). They might follow the growth style of investing, thus having the potential to make the most of the rising markets.
The QEFOF offers you -
• Diligently chosen long term equity funds portfolio
• With a well-researched process of scheme selection
• Well defined process of risk controls on investing
• An aggregated holding of your investments
• A one-stop solution for all your long term equity mutual fund investments
Thus as simple as it sounds, investing in just one fund will help you diversify your equity investments and mitigate the risk factor too. Sure, the Champion team would have already applied this thumb rule to their investments already, moreover it is your turn to diversify your portfolio and win over your financial goals. We would also like you to consult your financial advisor before taking an investment related decision.
