About Equity Funds
What is an Equity Fund?
An equity fund (also known as a stock fund) is a type of mutual fund or private investment fund that invests principally in publicly traded common stocks. Equity funds aim to generate high returns by investing in the shares of companies in varying proportions, as opposed to a fixed income fund, which uses shareholder money to make loans to companies or governments, collecting interest income.
Why choose Equity Funds?
  • Cost of investment:
    The frequent buying and selling of equity shares often results in lower expenses for equity funds. This, in turn, translates into higher returns for investors.
  • Cost-efficiency:
    By investing in equity funds you can get exposure to a number of stocks by investing a nominal amount, allowing you to diversify and benefit meaningfully.
