VALUE RESEARCH FUND FOR LONG TERM I invest `5,000 every month through a . systematic investment plan (SIP) in HDFC Top 200. Is this fund a good choice for the long term? RAJKUMARDHANUKA@HOTMAIL.COM
This large- and mid-cap fund invests in stocks drawn from companies in the BSE 200 Index as well as the 200 largest capitalised companies in India. With an equity exposure up to 90%, the fund manages to achieve capital appreciation over time. The fund has been the best performer in the category and has a performance history that makes it a preferred investment option. Investing in HDFC Top 200 is a good move and you should invest regularly in this fund. However, do track the progress of your investment as mutual fund investing cannot be based on invest-andforget approach.

INVESTMENT FOR SONS FUTURE I want to invest for my sons future and was planning to take Jeevan Anand insurance policy for 14 years. However, I am not very convinced and feel that mutual funds can give better returns. Which funds can I invest in? I can invest `2,000 every month . ABHATNAGAR@HOTMAIL.COM
A life insurance policy is taken to address your insurance needs for protection and not for investment. Jeevan Anand is a combination of endowment assurance and whole life insurance plan. It provides financial protection against death throughout the lifetime of the life assured with the provision of payment of a lump sum at the end of the selected term in case of his survival. A mutual fund, on the other hand, is an investment instrument that earns returns over the long term. If you are looking at investment returns, investing `2,000 every month in a mutual fund is a bet. ter proposition for building a corpus for your sons future than taking an insurance policy. However, make sure that you have adequate insurance cover on yourself to meet the financial needs of your family and financial dependents.

he problem of plenty is haunting individuals looking to park money in portfolio management services (PMS). It is not just the proliferation of the number of players offering these schemes that is making the selection process cumbersome. It is the variety of PMS, which are on offer, that is giving potential customers a headache. Gone are the days when the manager would ask the customer for his or her risk appetite and invest the money accordingly These days one would be bom. barded with prefixes such as fundamental, value, quantitative, event-driven and . so on. In short, if you have a corpus of `5 lakh and upwards and looking to park your money in a PMS, you better get a grip of these prefixes before heading for a meeting with the PMS manager.

SPOILT FOR CHOICE

TAX-SAVER FUNDS Should I invest `2,000 every month in a . single tax-saver fund? Or should the amount be more? SSKEDAR@SIFY.COM
Tax-planning funds seek to provide long-term capital appreciation by predominantly investing in equities and to help investors seek tax benefits. The fund is suitable for investors keen to invest in a diversified portfolio as well as those who want to obtain tax benefits. For the sum you are planning to invest, a single fund, such as Fidelity Tax Advantage or Canara Robeco Equity Tax Saver, will be good funds to invest in. However, remember that under the Direct Tax Code (DTC) regime, which comes into effect from April 1, 2012, no tax deductions will be available for investments in equitylinked savings schemes (ELSS). Plan your investments accordingly to get the most of tax breaks in these funds till then.

Brokerage houses, boutique investment advisors and even asset management companies (AMCs) offer PMS services these days to rich clientele. While some . may ask for a corpus of `5 lakh to start a PMS, most insist on a higher starting amount typically around `25 lakh . and upwards. And here are some of the PMS services offered by players in the market. FUNDAMENTAL PMS: As the name suggests, the fund manager builds a portfolio of stocks on the basis of fundamental research. The portfolio could be made up of large-cap or small-cap stocks or a mix of different market capitalisations. This is the most popular PMS product and it is further customised to investor needs. Karvy Private Wealth, for example, offers a large-cap PMS, a mixture of largeand mid-cap PMS and a mid-cap PMS. The performance of these schemes is generally compared with the benchmark index. The fund managers objective is to outperform the benchmark over a period of time, says Varun Goel, head-PMS, Karvy Private Wealth. VALUE INVESTING: It is a philosophy founded and developed by Sir Benjamin Graham and followed by the likes of

Warren Buffett. It involves buying stocks quoting at a discount to their intrinsic value. It is generally long-term in nature and stocks bought have to be held for as long as 3-5 years. Brokerages like Motilal Oswal offer products based on this style of investment. QUANTITATIVE PMS : We build quantitative models using fundamental and economic data to build a portfolio across different asset classes like equities, gold and debt to generate absolute returns, says Radhika Gupta, founder & director, Forefront Capital. The idea is to deliver consistently positive returns in various market environments, without the volatility you see in the equity market. The fund manager makes dynamic decisions on when to enter and exit equities, debt, and gold, based on fundamental and macroeconomic data like valuations, fund flows, supply and demand, and crisis indicators. EVENT-DRIVEN PMS : Here, the fund manager tries to spot stocks that are likely to turn around in a short period of time, say four to six months. So if there is a stock that has fared poorly this quarter and is expected to bounce back in the

next couple of quarters, it could find a place in the portfolio. Or, if the fund manager expects a lot of orders in the infrastructure sector, companies that could benefit from them would get into the portfolio. MUTUAL FUND PMS : The fund manager creates a portfolio of mutual fund schemes, depending on the risk profile of the investor. For example, a portfolio of large-cap schemes will be provided to someone with moderate risk appetite. Or a combination of large-cap, mid-cap and small-cap funds could be provided for investors with a higher risk appetite. The monthly statement of the scheme won't be just the transaction statement and it goes beyond connoting the net asset value. If the PMS scheme has invested in five funds, we tell the investor his exposure to each stock by combining these five funds, says Hiren Dhakan, associate fund manager, Bonanza Portfolio.
TREAD THE PATH CAREFULLY

Do the prefixes to the PMS schemes make sense to you? If no, you should do some reading and be ready with questions to clear your doubts when you meet

your manager. Also, you should ask yourself: why am I opting for the PMS route? Especially when there are several , mutual funds schemes that will serve the same purpose. We recommend investors to go in for a PMS scheme only when there is a clear distinction on how it is different from a mutual fund scheme, says Vishal Dhawan, founder, Plan Ahead Wealth Managers. Else, he recommends investors to stick with mutual funds. Investors who want higher interaction with a fund manager or prefer concentrated portfolio bets use the PMS route, says Alok Ranjan, portfolio manager, Way2Wealth. Simply put, if you want to be more involved in the decisionmaking process of your investments, you should opt for a PMS service. Also, you can make personalised aggressive calls in a PMS. For example, even if you foresee a crash, you can sit on 100% cash in a PMS, which won't be possible in a mutual fund scheme. Next, shift your focus to the PMS service provider. Remember, unlike mutual funds, where there is vast data available in the public domain, there are no such

details about PMS providers. That is why reference from friends or relatives or existing clients of the PMS provider may play a crucial part in choosing one. Another important aspect is the fee structure. In a mutual fund, the fee structure is as defined by the regulator. But, with a PMS service provider, the fee model could be fixed or variable. The investor even can opt for a combination of fixed and variable. For example, entities like Karvy offer the variable fee model, where the investor shares 20% of his profits with the firm. Some others work on the fixed fee model and the investor has to pay an annual fee. As for the disparate nomenclature of PMS services, try to understand the concept on which a particular scheme works. Remember, you have to choose an investment product based on your risk profile and return expectations. Make sure the fancy name and investment strategy matches your profile.

Follow the Top-down Approach Markets in for Some while Choosing a Mutual Fund Testing Times Ahead
Expert Take
cision to invest must be initiated by the need to invest, rather than anything external. Depending on what your approach to investing is, this would either sound quite obvious to you, or not make any sense. This point is an antidote to the approach exemplified by the statement is this a good time to invest?. This question is the reverse of Should I book profits now?. The answer to that always is that whether its a good time to invest depends on whether you have the money to invest. You cant time the markets, so the thing to do is to choose the right investment and invest in it steadily over a long term. That brings us to the main question: how to choose the right fund? The way to approach this is in a top-down manner. The first stage is to choose the type of fund you want to invest in. The type of fund is best defined at the first level by its debt vs equity allocation. Within equity, the type is best defined by the size of the companies whose stocks the fund typically invests in. Value Researchs fund taxonomy is based on this concept. At the first stage, the most important thing that you could do is to map the time frame of your investment to a type of asset. Broadly speaking, you should be invested in fixed income for short-term investments and in equity for long-term investments. Its important to point out that the definition of short- and long-term here is very different from what is used in trading circles. Long-term is at least three years. This bears emphasising. All investments that you might need to redeem within three years should be in fixed income avenues and not in equity. For periods beyond that, choose equity . Equity funds are classified by the capitalisation of the companies in whose stocks they generally invest in. Here, the tradeoff is on risk. Mid-cap and small-cap focussed funds can deliver higher returns but can also result in huge losses. Larger-cap stocks moderate both. This is the general framework of figuring out how one should classify mutual funds and what purpose each serves. Only when you have done this does the question of which particular fund to buy arise. Its crucial to understand that choosing the type of fund that you should be investing in is as important (possibly more important) than the individual fund. If you are investing in an unsuitable type, then thats going to be a problem, even if the actual fund may be the best one within that type. Even though choosing the right type of fund is important, its largely a do-it-yourself activity. The marketing efforts of fund companies, as well as the sales pitches of fund distributors, all concentrate on telling you which individual fund to buy. Unlike choosing an actual product, its not an exciting or an entertaining activity to learn the nitty-gritty of how to plan your investment in this manner. This makes it all the more important to get this right. This brings us to the final stage of actually choosing the right fund (or set of funds). Thats a story by itself and Ill write about it in another column in the near future.

FUND FOR NEW INVESTOR I want to invest `1,000 per month in a . mutual fund through the SIP route. Which fund should I select? NIRMAL.THAKUR2008@GMAIL.COM
You are on right in considering to invest through the SIP route in mutual funds. You appear to be new to investing. It will be a good idea to start with an SIP in a balanced fund. Once you gain some experience in investing over six months, you will understand the way investing works and then you can move to a large-cap fund and build a portfolio from there on. You can consider investing in HDFC Prudence or HDFC Balanced fund. Both are highly rated funds with a proven track record and performance history to invest in.

Our expert guides you in matters relating to mutual funds. Email to etquerymf@indiatimes.com

Last week, I wrote about how and when to exit funds. Id written that one good way to ascertain is if your reasons are exactly opposite to those behind your decision to invest in a fund. Choosing when and in what to invest is a sort of a mirror image of disinvesting. However, it turns out that some of the steps in the investment process have some assumptions that are not very clear. Therefore, this weeks column is about those aspects which tend to be a little less obvious. The first point was that the de-

central bank as well as fears of a default by Greece pushed markets lower, with the Sensex losing 2.18 % to close at 17, 871 last week. The Nifty, too, lost 2.18% to end at 5366. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI), as part of its anti-inflationary measures, raised rates by 25 basis points in its monetary review policy. This is the tenth time in the last 15 months that the central bank has raised rates. Analysts fear this could hit growth in the medium term. Hence, stocks were marked lower during the week. Reliance Industries was the top loser amongst Sensex stocks, touching a 52-week low, falling by . 8% in the process to close at `868. This was on account of reports by the Comptroller and Auditor General of India (CAG) accusing the oil ministry of favouring the company by allowing it to double the development cost of its KG-D6 gas field. Maruti fell 5% to end at Rs 1,167 on account of the labour strike at its plant in Manesar. Also, higher interest rates and higher cost of pet-

rol continue to affect car sales. Till we get indications of a good monsoon and peaking of interest rates, the markets are in for some testing times, says Kaushik Dani, fund manger, Peerless Mutual fund. In the short term, markets are likely to watch out for the progress of the monsoon and movement of oil prices.
DEBT MARKETS: The RBI continued

with its hawkish stand by raising rates by 25 basis points again. With diesel and kerosene prices likely to be raised, inflation is likely to move upwards. Hence, analysts fear the central bank may resort to more rate hikes. They feel another hike of 25-50 basis points is likely in the second quarter, and that is when the inflation could peak out. Hence, retail investors should invest only in liquid and liquid plus funds, they suggest.
GOLD: With the festive and wedding

season over, there is lower demand for the yellow metal domestically . Hence, prices moved down margin. ally by `135 per 10 grams over the . last week to end at `22,290 per 10 grams. However, experts feel that gold prices will continue to rule firm on fears of a potential default by Greece on its sovereign debt.
