This pyramid displays the risk potential of each category. While large-cap funds are more stable and less risky than their counterparts, they also give up some of their potential for return. Similarly, liquid funds carry low risk, whereas small-cap and mid-cap funds are at the higher end of the risk-return spectrum. Thus, building a well-diversified mutual fund portfolio that helps sustain various market phases is important.

It is important to analyse a number of qualitative and quantitative aspects while choosing the best suitable mutual funds. In addition, you should consider personal factors like your age, risk tolerance, timeframe to achieve the goal, etc.

At PersonalFN, we understand that not everyone has the expertise to choose the best-suited mutual fund schemes. The lack of market knowledge and fear of market volatility often discourage people from investing in market-linked financial instruments. However, with PersonalFN's SMART Fund Explorer, investing in mutual funds can now be made easier and smarter.
