Subbu's Solution

What is long term when it comes to investments in mutual funds?
I would say invest forever! Investing in equities can be for your lifetime, but you can always reduce or increase your exposure to equities depending on your risk appetite and need for returns to achieve your goals. The smart thing for an investor is to invest in an equity fund for the long term rather than looking at a shorter time frame, which may be risky.
However, from an educational point of view, you need to examine the various holding periods over the years for equities, the shorter your grips on equities, chances are that you may land up with losses. It is a challenge to second-guess the markets; even the best of experts often have trouble. Therefore it is the best to hold on to equities assuming a five to ten year horizon.
