This is a fund that invests mainly in shares of foreign companies. When you invest for five years or above, you can expect gains that beat the inflation rate and are also higher than fixed income options. But be prepared for ups and downs in your investment value along the way.
International equity funds are suitable to invest a part of your money for diversification, so that if the Indian markets are going through a sharp correction at least some portion of your money is insulated. But make sure you invest in the one that has a broad mandate of investing in companies of different sizes, sectors and countries.
Like all equity funds, you must invest only through the SIP route. Click here to read a primer on SIP investing.
Warning: Do not invest in this, or any other international equity fund, if you need to redeem your investment in less than five years.
