19How to Select The Right Mutual Fund in 2023
For investors of all ages, mutual funds provide investment solutions for a range of investment needs. You can invest in them with the goal of creating wealth and attaining a variety of life-stage objectives, including retirement planning, supporting the children`s further education, vacation planning, property purchase, or creating a source of retirement income. However, before you begin investing, the most crucial question is how to select mutual funds that might fulfill your financial goals.

A number of factors must be considered in order to select the best-performing mutual fund to invest in, including fund benchmarks, the performance of the chosen funds in comparison to other funds in the same category, historical returns, ratios, the fund managers` profiles, and more. Mutual fund investing has been demonstrated to be a rewarding wealth builder for long-term investors with retirement plans, particularly in the equity category. However, a wide range of additional mutual fund kinds is also offered, such as equity, debt, hybrid, multi-asset, flexi cap, fixed-maturity, tax-saving, liquidity-based, and so on. It may be difficult for investors to select the best-performing fund from a large sector.

How to Select a Top-Performing Mutual Fund

Investment Objectives

Only after carefully assessing your life goals should you make any investments. To assess if investing in mutual funds might help you reach your financial objectives, you must first determine your demands and then compare those with the targets of a mutual fund scheme.  Investors must decide whether their goals and the mutual fund scheme in which they will invest are compatible because mutual funds, like people, have distinct investment objectives.

Performance History

Take into account the mutual fund`s historical performance, but bear attention to the fact that it does not guarantee future outcomes. It is advised to examine returns over a range of time periods, such as one year, three years, five years, and ten years, when analyzing returns. This will provide insight into the fund`s success and stability. Selecting funds that regularly beat their corresponding benchmark and category average is also advised.

Expense to Income Ratio

The cost ratio is expressed as a percentage of the fund`s assets and is charged by the fund house in addition to other expenses for managing the assets of a fund. The mutual fund returns less the expense ratio represent the investor`s net return. When an investor`s expense ratio is large, his or her returns will suffer. As a result, while choosing a fund, an investor should choose one with a lower expense ratio than its competitors in the category.


Choosing just one mutual fund strategy for your investment is not recommended. It is recommended that an investor diversify throughout different kinds of assets by investing in several types of mutual fund schemes.

Performance Record of Fund Managers

The expert who manages your money once you invest in a plan is a fund manager. Therefore, it`s crucial to be aware of who is managing your money. You should research their track record and see if their investment philosophy aligns with your own. One must consider the amount of schemes they oversee, their track record over the past five years (or beyond), and how long they have spent investing funds. Here, a few fundamental filters will enable the creation of effective schemes.


Pick a mutual fund with liquidity, which allows you to quickly buy and sell shares as needed. Due to the open-ended nature of mutual fund schemes, such as ELSS and FMPs, most of them have lock-in periods. Prior to making a decision to invest in alternatives like ELSS or Fixed Maturity Plans,  it is a good idea to take your liquidity requirements and time horizon into account.

In conclusion, you will find it beneficial to choose the finest mutual fund if you consider the factors described above. Do your research carefully to choose a mutual fund strategy that is almost perfect for you in order to achieve your investing objectives. Furthermore, maintaining a continuous track record of your selected mutual fund on a 6-month basis keeps you accurate that you have placed your "hopes" on in a proper mutual fund for yourself.
