What is Equity Mutual Fund?

An equity fund is a mutual fund which invests primarily in the stock market. Which is why equity funds are often called stock funds as well. These can be both actively and passively managed funds (also called index funds). However, you don’t need to get confused by the nomenclature. The simple thing to remember about equity funds is that they invest mostly in stocks and are categorized based on the size of the company, the goal of the funds and the overall portfolio. You must ensure that the fund objective is in line with your own personal wealth goals.

Who Should Invest in Equity Mutual Funds?

If you’ve ever thought “Should you invest in equity mutual funds?”, you’ll find an answer here. Equity Mutual Funds are great if you’re looking to grow wealth over the long term.

How To Evaluate Best Equity Mutual Funds?

There are a few key things to consider while evaluating an equity fund. To begin with, you must analyse the historical returns of a fund over different time frames and compare them with the competition. Learn about the fund manager – are they experienced? Have they led funds to success in the past? Where did they study? etc.  Also, what is the objective that the fund has declared? What companies have they invested in matters most – that way you know what your money is going into. However, it is best to consult a wealth advisor for this purpose since an expert will be able to dig in far better than most investors.
