I guess I have been able to achieve what I wanted to. Thanks to the guidance from the articles on the Value Research website and the advice of Mr Dhirendra Kumar. To switch over from regular schemes to direct growth plans, I chose funds of good standing based on the knowledge I gained from VRO.
Value Research has helped me in making informed decisions and is still helping me in my retirement plan. It comes as a handy guide when comparing the performance of different funds.
Where Value Research is really useful is when it comes to new or lesser known funds that are the emerging stars of tomorrow.
