I have Rs 20,000 a month to invest. Looking at the current state of the market, where should I invest?
-Jai Kumar Sharma
For a long-term investor the level of the market should not be a deterrent to invest. That you have Rs 20,000 a month to invest will go a long way over a 10-15 year investment time frame for you to get the most of systematic investment as well as power of compounding. You should look for a mix of funds that comprises multicap funds such as DSP BlackRock equity or HDFC equity and Large-cap funds such as DSP Black Rock Top 100 or HDFC Top 200. These are funds that are consistent and have a long performance history to fall back to. However, for your investments to build long-term wealth, make sure you track the fund performance at least once a year.
