Ofcourse it has a lot of benefits! It has a low cost. You can invest as little as Rs.5,000/-, and sometimes even lesser. Also, there are no sales charges in Mutual Funds.

Mutual Funds is safe in comparison to direct investment in equities. You can check the past performances to get an idea. Also, you don't need to keep a track of it everyday. Just check it once in a while.

I always recommend investing in Mutual Funds as they hire professionals to manage accounts who have real-time access to market information and are able to trade on the largest and most cost-effective scale.

There is liquidity too. In open-ended schemes, you can get your money back quickly at net asset value related prices from the mutual fund itself.

Can a best performing mutual fund now continue to be a best performing mutual fund even after a week, after a month, after a quarter, after a year?
Then in that case, do we intend to switch our investments every week or quarter to stick only with the best performing mutual fund of the time.
