Why invest in Equity Mutual Funds?

The first thing that comes to mind when you think about investing is equities. As an asset class, equities have the potential to generate higher returns over the long term than most other types of assets (keeping in mind the principle of high risk, high reward) and hence play an important part in one’s investment portfolio. There are two ways of investing in equity – you buy stocks on your own or you invest through equity mutual funds. Unless you are an expert, it doesn’t make sense to invest yourself. Equity mutual funds are a better choice to invest in equities given the wide choice of fund categories that one could explore.
