Through a Systematic Investment Plan, investors can be exposed to such portfolios with an investment as modest as Rs.500/-* in mutual funds. Such a portfolio would otherwise be highly costly for an investor directly investing in the stock market to buy and retain.
*Subject to the Asset Management Company (AMC) requirements.
Investment in Mutual Funds through SIP offers the investor with a disciplined strategy to regularly invest certain amounts regardless of the investment's unit cost.
