Starting with a good fund

Choosing the first fund is important. A good fund can be the driver for sustained investing, while a bad fund can or turn away investors from investing

I am 24, and since last month have started investing Rs 1,000 in HDFC Top 200. I am thinking of investing in Reliance Growth and HDFC Equity from next month. My investment time-frame is 10-20 years and I am looking at investing Rs 4,000-Rs 6,0000 a month through SIPs. I want a stable fund that would give high returns. - Wilfred F
