Your Answer to Simplifying Equity Investing in 2022

Thursday, Jan 06, 2022

With the equity markets facing sharp swings, it is important to select a diversified equity mutual fund that can capture market opportunities while minimizing downside risk. However, searching for a suitable equity mutual fund among the 350+ equity mutual funds in the market can be a confusing and cumbersome job.

A few key questions that may come to mind:

1.  How many funds should you have in your equity basket?

2.  Should you be investing in large caps, mid or small caps?

3.  Should you assess funds based on their ranking on mutual fund rating sites?

The simple answer to these questions is that you should focus on building a diversified portfolio that is not biased to any market cap or investment style. It should give your portfolio the potential to grow, at the same time, minimize downside risks.

Building this portfolio, however, may be more complex. With more and more schemes added to the industry every year, you need to go beyond mutual fund returns to research a suitable equity mutual fund.

A Simple Solution - Equity Fund of Funds

If you are unable to decide or don’t have the time to research and select from the numerous Equity Funds out there in the market, an Equity Fund of Funds can be the right solution for you. This fund comprises of a well-researched diversified investment portfolio of other equity mutual funds.

For DIY (Do-It-Yourself) investors, some of the biggest risks when it comes to equity mutual fund portfolio construction are:

• Risk of choosing the wrong philosophy: For instance, it would suit you best to invest in a mutual fund scheme that sticks to its investment mandate instead of frequently changing the fund objective to suit the market conditions.

• Skewed or Concentrated Portfolio: Additionally, there is also the risk of portfolio concentration or selecting only a particular sector or theme.

• Hassles of Tracking Multiple Portfolio and Rebalancing – You need to spend time reviewing multiple investments & their performance and rebalance as required.

In contrast, an Equity Fund of Funds scheme helps simplify the equity mutual fund selection, portfolio construction and tracking. You effectively track just one NAV and one fund. Your portfolio is managed by a professional fund manager, who will periodically balance the portfolio depending on the market conditions.
