I want to invest in mutual funds for a long period, say, five to seven years or may be 10 years. I am 30 and I can invest Rs 5,000 in 2-3 SIPs or one-time investment. I have moderate risk and I don’t want to lose any money. Please suggest funds for me.

Mutual fund advisors typically recommend multi cap schemes to investors with a long-term horizon and moderate risk appetite. These schemes invest across market capitalisations and sectors. The fund manager has the freedom to bet on sectors and stocks based on his view of the market. Here are our recommended multi cap mutual fund schemes: Best multi cap mutual funds to invest in 2019.

However, you should be prepared for volatility in the short to medium term. Over a long period, equity mutual funds can offer you superior returns than other asset classes. However, if you are totally against taking any risk and losing money even in the short term, you should not invest in equity mutual fund schemes.
