Expert view of the fund + outlook
Kotak Select Focus Fund is a diversified multi cap fund this means that most of your money will be invested in stocks of large, medium and small-sized firms. This fund is suitable for child’s education, child’ marriage, planning for retirement and home purchase. The fund is not at all suitable for creating wealth, for lifestyle needs and for short term needs. With the growing Indian economy, the companies perform well and their stock prices will follow their performances. Hence if the economy’s growth is expected to grow at 8 percent, then the top performing funds will give you a return in excess of 14 percent. Now is the good time to invest. Instead of trying to time the market especially if it is a SIP. Mutual Fund is unlike stock, the mutual fund scheme manager will look into the stocks for you. If you have made a decision on the investment, then go ahead and invest. But, do not remove the money when the markets go up or down. Stick to your goals.
