The absolute stability associated with long term investments makes it ideal for investors with long term goals
Investment in mutual funds (MF) requires a certain duration of time to give efficient returns to the investors. Mutual fund investments work best in the long term. A time period of 5 years or more is considered long term. But the most important thing is asset allocation when it comes to investment. All investments – short term or long term, should follow an asset allocation strategy. "This strategy needs to be fine-tuned according to macro conditions and can be tweaked when the macro conditions change," says Renu Maheshwari, SEBI registered investment advisor, CEO and principal advisor at Finzscholarz Wealth Managers LLP.
