ETMarkets Investors' Guide: S Naren on how to handle your mutual funds in 2021 | The Economic Times Markets Podcast

Calendar 2020 was a year of rollercoaster ride for Dalal Street, with many sharp plunges and rapid climbs that lifted the benchmarks to new record highs. Thankfully, most investors made money! And like all adversity, this year too taught us some hard lessons in the marketplace. As we hopefully look into the New Year to lift the cloud of the pandemic from above our head, the market place is looking riskier, the path ahead for the economies looks more challenging, and options for wealth creation more difficult.

So we did what we do best at every crossroads: turn to the veterans and experienced for wisdom and guidance. We begin by talking to one of Dalal Street’s most seasoned money managers, S Naren, who has navigated many bull and bear markets in his investing journey this far, and who is always super-resilient in times good or bad. Asset allocation, diversification & balanced investing are the kinds of expressions one tends to associate with him.

So, let’s hear out the best strategies for mutual fund investing in the year ahead.

A) You are known as the champion of the concept called asset allocation. From where we stand today, what should be the ideal asset mix for an average risk averse investor and what kind of returns can she expect from such a portfolio in 2021?

B) Let’s discuss mutual funds. Over the past few months, the buzz has been mutual funds are not delivering. Is it misinformation, wrong calculation or the reality? What would be your message for the investors who have traditionally stayed with mutual funds?

Thank you Mr Naren, that was indeed an insightful conversation. That’s it in our New Year special podcast. You can check out our regular podcasts on the equity market twice every week day.
