There is a difference between the price of a listed security and the NAV of a mutual fund scheme. Listed security has a price determined by the demand and supply of the security. Whereas the NAV of the scheme has a value determined mathematically, by the prices of the securities in the portfolio.

If the portfolio appreciates by 10 per cent the Rs15 NAV will become Rs 16.5 and Rs 150 NAV will become Rs 165. So in whatever the NAV you invest your investment will fetch you only 10 per cent return.

So instead of concentrating on low NAV and more number of units, it is worthwhile to consider other factors (performance track record, fund management, volatility) that determine the portfolio return.

Do you know that an investment of 1000pm can grow to 1.4/8/35/153 Lakhs if remain invested for just 5/10/15/20 years and that too presuming a return of 30% per annum compared to 67% returns given by one of the best performing ULIPs of Metlife in the last one year and about 40% returns in last three years. This also has one of the lowest overheads and highest allocation amongst all companies.

Advantages of investing in ULIPs are 1) Disciplined investing over a long term resulting in better returns, 2) Lower churning of stocks thus reducing brokerage costs compared to Mutual Funds, 3) Investment managers of ULIPS can invest in companies with growth potential as the money is invested for long term, unlike in mutual funds where losses are as big and quick as profits!!

To know more and start making your investments in the best performing ULIPs and other funds, call Indrajit at 09342704696, 08064542266 or mail him at krishavinvestments@yahoo.co.in with your contact number and address
