Hi Subbu

is it good time to buy equity funds

like QLEF now for the long term given the fall in sensex or is it better to wait for longer ? Thanks - SHANKAR
Hello Mr. Shankar, investing in equity for long term is always good. Trying to time the market by deciding to wait rather than invest, is a tough call as it may work sometimes and not work sometimes. I always believe one should begin investing now, rather than waiting for later. Ideally, time can be better spent analyzing funds to see their style and if that style suits you. The selected fund should take care of deciding to invest in the market or to hold cash. What is important is that you realize the importance of investing in equities, and stay invested for the long term, which is good.

You should consult with your financial advisor to find out if you are underweight in equities, then you can increase your investments in equities by adopting a Systematic Investment Plan (SIP) method to invest rather than beginning with a large investment.

SIP allows you to average out market volatility. Through SIP you invest a small amount on a regular basis, so when the market goes up you buy less units of the mutual fund and when the market goes down you buy more units of the mutual fund.

Would like to conclude by reminding of the old investment adage – ‘higher the risk, higher the gain’ which holds true for equities since equities are best suited for investors who are willing to take high risk. Here risk is largely defined as volatility of returns than permanent loss of capital. Mr. Shankar, you could also consult your financial advisor for any asset allocation related queries.
