Gold has always been a hot favourite for Indian Investors. So, if you’re in a “should I invest in gold versus mutual funds?” frame of mind, you’re not the first. Many new investors have wondered if gold is a safer investment when compared to mutual funds. Mostly because gold seems like a safe investment it is a real asset since man-made money and many currencies are backed by the country’s gold reserves. On the other hand, we all know that mutual fund investments are subject to market risks (though we have never read the red herring prospectus carefully).

Like Gold, Mutual Funds also have their own drawbacks. Let’s start with the obvious fact that Mutual Funds are not physical assets that have inherent value. Moreover, Mutual Funds don’t always offer high liquidity. The risk involved can be higher if you choose the wrong allocation in your asset portfolio. This is why is it important to always consult a wealth management expert.
