A look at two of the best-performing multi-asset allocation mutual funds
Mutual fund investment is the ideal way of participating in the market in a regular and professional manner. Now and then, successful mutual fund schemes come into the spotlight and catch the attention of investors. The success of a fund scheme till now is in no way an assurance of its good performance in the future. Nevertheless, if a scheme has performed well over the years, it is worth having a look from an investment perspective.
Multi-asset Allocation Scheme
We look at a couple of multi-asset mutual fund schemes that have delivered a compounded annual growth rate of over 12% in the last five years. Multi-asset allocation schemes invest in equities, debts and other assets like gold and real estate. The scheme maintains a minimum investment of 10% in each of these three asset categories. For an investor, a multi-asset allocation scheme is suitable for diversifying their asset exposure and mitigating the risk of volatility usually associated with equity investments.
