How long is long term?

The answer to this question is an essential one if you want to invest successfully. We give you ours, in the next Investors' Hangout

How long is long term?

Equity funds deliver their best returns over the long term. The Sensex delivered about 12.7% over the past five years. However the individual one year periods yielded about 9%, 41.8%, -8.9%, 16.2% and 9.5%. Anyone looking for a quick one-year buck might've well landed himself with a mediocre 9.5% or a devastating -8.9%.

But how long is long term? Is it 1 year as defined by the Income Tax Department for equity mutual funds? Is it 3 years or is it 3 decades? We've crunched huge volumes of data, to find some answers. We will discuss them in the upcoming Investors' Hangout. Join us.
