When you invest for five years or more, you can expect gains that comfortably beat the inflation rate as well as returns from fixed income options. But be prepared for ups and downs in your investment value along the way.

Aggressive hybrid funds invest 65-80 per cent of your money in equity shares and the rest in bonds. Their returns are slightly lower than those of pure equity funds which invest all your money in shares, but they also fall relatively less when the stock markets decline. This makes them suitable for conservative equity investors or first-time equity investors who are not used to sharp ups and downs.

Like for all equity-linked investments, 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 aggressive hybrid fund, if you need to redeem your investment in less than five years.
