About Course

Here’s a course that takes you into the vast domain of investment avenues such as Index Fund and Mutual Fund.

The Index Fund is a type of mutual fund that aims to replicate the performance of a specific stock market index, such as the S&P 500 in the United States. It does this by investing in the same stocks that make up the index in the same proportions. The goal is to match the returns of the index rather than trying to outperform it.

Now, Index Funds are a suitable investment avenue in the US due to a lack of “market beating” businesses. As a result, Investors end up paying the higher expenses for a direct mutual fund for the lower returns of Index Funds.

However, it’s a no brainer that the Indian Economy is no where at par with that of the US. While Index Funds do very well in the fully developed and thriving US economy, its strategies cannot be applied in India. So, as a growing economy, how should Indians determine whether to invest in:

  • Mutual Funds,
  • Index Funds, or 
  • in a combination of both?

Only one way to find out the option that matches your temperament- expert guidance from our newest mentor- Mr Kalpen Parekh!
