Stomaching Risk

Go for a multi-cap fund if you can stomach the risk, else invest in a diversified large-cap fund…

I want to invest Rs 2,000 every month in a diversified equity plan from HDFC AMC only, please suggest which fund to invest in between HDFC Top 200 and HDFC Equity
.- Eish Sharma

Both the funds that you have short listed are highly rated with a proven track record and performance history. Compared to HDFC Top 200, which is a large- and mid-cap fund, HDFC Equity is a risky fund being a multi cap fund. If you can stomach the risk go for HDFC Equity, else you can invest in HDFC Top 200.
