I am very new to stock markets and currently have zero knowledge on trading too.
Came across a google add ZIPSIP which offers SIP’s (part of Aditya Birla Money- Myuniverse), which provides me options to invest in various Top performing funds. Also got another advertisement on http://www.fundsindia.com/ .
So here are my questions:
1> How safe would money be through online investments (through these websites)?
2> Would I get good returns as a beginner?
3> What is Term which I should invest and How much amount?
4> What Risk profile should I opt for good returns?
5> Is Full/Partial withdrawal options there in these type of investments?
Please guide me.
Thanks and Regards,
Anup-ZIPSIP is the facility to invest in mutual funds but not in direct stock. At the same time, I feel FundsIndia’s advertisement is also meant for equity mutual funds. So it is not about trading but investing in mutual funds.
If you are new to equity market, then keep in mind that equity investment is meant for long term investment like 10+ years. Also, if you don’t have time or patience to do research on your own then chose the route of mutual funds. There are many ways one can invest in mutual funds. First understand your requirement and basic knowledge of the same. Then go ahead of investment. Never run behind fancy returns shown by mediators.
- They are safe as these portals acts like mediators, but the performance is purely depend on the fund you invested.
- You will get good returns only if you stay invested for long term.
- There is nothing like that, however to get the benefit of equity you must be long term investor.
- Ideally for long term goals you must invest in debt:equity in ratio of 30:70. Yearly review of the fund is must.
