Speaking on the investment tips for a mutual fund investor in 2020, Hemant Rustagi, CEO at Wiseinvest Advisors said, "The stock market rise has failed to bring benefit to the small-cap and mid-cap mutual fund investors in the year 2019. However, I would advise investors to remain invested in mid-cap and small-cap funds as in the year 2020, the market will become broad-based. So, an investor can expect a better performance by small-cap and mid-cap funds too in the year 2020." He advised mutual fund investors to remain invested in small-cap and mid-cap mutual funds without decreasing the exposure.
Rustagi said that in 2020, diversified invested is advisable means an investor should invest in small-caps, mid-caps and large-caps. Those who find it difficult to manage their portfolio due to investments in various mutual funds categories can pick one mutual fund category — multi-cap mutual funds. By investing in multi-cap funds, one will get the benefit of each category's performance. Rustagi said, "In the long-term, I would suggest mutual fund investors remain invested in small-cap and mid-cap funds and if there is a plan for investing in a new fund, then a small-cap fund would be a good choice, if the time horizon is long-term."
He said that ELSS mutual funds can also be chosen instead of multi-cap funds as it would give income tax exemption under Section 80C on investment up to Rs 1.5 lakh in a year.
