    Hi manish,

    What are low cost index funds ? And how much return they can provide on an avg.


    1. Amol

      There are different type of index funds in market , index funds are funds which track some index for example Nifty , by investing money in same proportion as Index structure . The cost here means the annual Fund management charges , so lower it is , better !!

      Return wise you can expect almost same as Index .

    Hello Manish,

    Such carefully selected videos will be very nice addition to your blog. I’m a regular visitor here and this is like a very intuitive medium to spread the words sometimes.

    one query here, can you pls suggest ideally where should a 30 years old person invest his 10% salary every month to build corpus for retirement?


    1. manish says:

      thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

      The question you have asked is very easy to answer .

      You can invest in two things

      1. If you are a risk taker : Invest in Diversified Mutual funds through SIP , and when you are 5 yrs away from your Retirement , switch your money slowly everymonth through SWP (monthly transfer , nothing big)
      2. If you are a moderate risk taker : Try PPF + SIP in Equity funds
      3. If you are low risk taker or No risk taker : You do manual investment permonth in low cost Index funds .

      In any case Debt products are no no for any long term Goals like Retirement ๐Ÿ˜‰


      1. Jagbir says:

        Thanks for a quick response Manish. I’m a risk taker guy and dont mind putting all bucks in a good diversified mutual fund. It’d be very helpful if you can name a few good funds here for this purpose.


        1. manish says:

          You should look at my post on the list of Equity funds for 2009 . They are good funds ..

          Some are

          HDFC top 200
          Kotak 30
          SunBirla Front Line Equity
          DSP Black Rock top 100

    I agree very much with his views on the financial advisor and the financial product seller. Advisors should never sell products AT ALL!
    .-= Mohan´s last blog ..How to block ads on Websites? =-.

    1. manish says:


      I agree . But I think it can happen that Financial Planner can have association with someone who sells all kind of products and then take some part of commision from him on any products sold , that way he will not be biased with any product also .

      Financial Planners need a model for compensating themselves and This is one of the widely accepted and practised model .
