When there is uncertainty writ all around, you cannot be taking sides. You need an option that can navigate across markets, that’s steady in strategy, and that is large-cap based. Kotak Standard Multicap fits all three. This multicap fund is part of our Prime Funds recommendation list. Kotak Standard Multicap suits any investor with a timeframe of 4 years and above. Here’s why the fund makes a good investment.
Given rate adjustments by other banks and NBFCs recently, a significant rate cut may soon be in the offing in this deposit as well. Investors and seniors looking for deposit options should lock into this FD before rates are revised.
When uncertainty is the name of the game today, investing in an equity fund may not be at the top of your to-do list. But for long-term investors, markets like these offer good buying opportunities. For such investors, a multi-cap fund that uses a core of large-cap stocks and adds returns by selectively picking mid-cap and small-cap stocks will serve well.
If you’ve got a 5-year-plus timeframe, equity is the way to go as we explained this week. And if you need money in the very near term, we’ve asked you to stay safe with fixed deposits, liquid funds, and ultra short-term funds. But what about the in-between timeframe? What are your options should you have a horizon of 2-3 years and want better returns that fixed deposits or low-risk debt funds?
What if you want your debt fund to have two things – safety and predictable strategy? Most funds have either of these but not both. Funds that don’t take credit risk are still open to changes in portfolio maturities and one-off events.
Want a fund that will avoid expensive valuations and yet not leave you with the pain of the long wait for value to work? This fund does just that. Not only that, this fund can replace large-cap funds in your portfolio.
Over the past two weeks, we have been writing on the promise in the mid-cap and small-cap segment of the market and how the rally is starting to move beyond a handful of large stocks. While a quick recovery may be some way off, the steep 2-year correction in the mid-cap space offers good opportunities to begin accumulating mid-caps from a long-term perspective.
