Five mutual fund schemes that recently got included in Moneycontrol’s MC30 list
There are over 44 mutual fund houses in India that combine to offer more than 2,500 mutual fund schemes. And a mix of 5-10 such schemes is sufficient for your portfolio.
It is like finding 6-10 needles in this massive fund scheme haystack. Because, to select a scheme, you have to compare its performance against the benchmark and across the category, the risk associated, the fund manager’s and the fund houses’ track record and so on. Or you can go for a curated list of schemes. Moneycontrol’s MC30 is one such curated list.
