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.
