The Saga of a Mutualfund

Updated on August 7, 2014

As my early hubs, I insist again in stock matters. People invest in best stocks and funds for the best growth of their money. A mutual fund will gain reputation and it will attracts more investors by its growth story and its historical return. Here I introduce a mutual fund from Reliance Asset Management Company : 'Reliance Growth'. Really its present performance is not satisfied. Here I tries to reveal the power of a Mutual fund with an average performance.

Which may be the best investment in future ?

Various Options

This mutual fund available in the market in four options- Direct Option, Growth Option, Dividend option and Bonus option. In Bonus option of a mutualfund , the number of units will increase when the value of mutual fund grows'

Present Performance

The performance of this fund is not good in recent times. Its Net Asset Value is not in a good position after the great collapse of Stock Market in 2008, when compare with some other well performed funds. For example UTI Opportunities fund, SBI Emerging Business Fund and ICICI Prudential Bluechip equity. An investor expects a safety from the fund managers and their investment should overtake the performance of Indexes.

Benefit after Inception

But its growth after inception is great and wonderful because the Indian Indexes like Nifty or Sensex grew just 10 times, the Reliance mutual fund has grew to 65 times. A blind invester is one who don't try to study about the trends of market who get the profit as same as or lesser than the growth of an index. But a good fund manager is not like a blind invester. The growth story of Reliance Growth fund teach us that lesson...!

      Consolacion Miravite 3 years ago from Philippines

      This is one investment alternative that has not seen real growth in the Philippines. Based on past indicators, nobody has ever beaten the PSEI (Philippine Stock Exchange) index in terms of growth and earnings. What this goes to show is that, investors are hard put in beating the stock exhange. Some local pundits say that if this is the trend, then it might be better to invest in the stock markets directly than go into mutual funds. I guess, ours is not yet a well directed market in terms of investments.
