Factors to consider while deciding the best mutual funds scheme

If let’s say your investment goal is

  • for a duration of 5 years, you can go for investing in debt schemes.
  • for 5-7 years, you could opt for equity schemes
  • and for 10 years, other schemes like the mid-cap or small-cap should be considered.

When it comes to the risk factor, it is important to understand that every scheme has some risk involved. Some schemes could be riskier than others. For instance, the liquid mutual fund is the least risky mutual fund among the other debt fund schemes. But credit fund schemes could involve high-risk factors. Another example could be, small-cap is riskier than the medium cap or multi-cap schemes of the mutual fund.

Risk factor plays a huge role as some people don’t want to take risks and for them, some schemes could prove costly. For these people, proper analysis is required.
