Expense ratio

Never put all your eggs in one basket, to avoid losing them all at a time. That is why it is important to adopt diversification in an investment wealth building strategy to reduce any likely risk that can negatively affect your investments.

One should diversify the investments between a few funds (the actual number depends entirely on the amount of investment). This strategy ensures that the portfolio is not dependent on the performance of one single fund. However, one needs to avoid over-diversification as that would achieve nothing.

Investor can also plan like one mutual fund of diversified equity plan, second mutual fund of balanced type and third one you can plan of debt type etc. In this manner the money will get diversified, risk is reduced and the investor will get excellent profit. For Example: Rs 20,000 per month, it would be wise to opt for a maximum of three funds. Consider well rated large-cap funds, midcap funds and a balanced fund. The latter would provide the debt component and reduce the portfolio's downside risk.
