Beginners to investing may not want to embrace a great amount of volatility. Here are 5 equity mutual fund schemes that beginners to investing may want to invest in.Mirae Asset Large Cap Fund
Mirae Asset Large Cap Fund
Among the largecap funds, this fund has generated higher 5-year returns than most other peers.
It has pretty decent assets under management of near Rs 13,500 crores. Its expense ratio of 1.76 per cent is also not too bad.
Among its holdings include names like HDFC Bank, ICICI Bank and Reliance Industries. Interestingly, it is one of the few funds, where Reliance Industries is in the top three holdings and the shares of Reliance are soaring. This may give a further lift to the NAV.
Currently, the NAV of the fund is Rs 24.34 under the growth plan.
Axis Bluechip Fund
To be honest, the last 1, 2 and 3 year returns of most largecap funds have not been great. In line, Axis Bluechip Fund has also delivered returns of 2.41 per cent in one year, 13.29 per cent in 3 years and around 12 per cent in the last 5 years.
With earnings not catching-up and economic growth slowing, it has become hard even for mutual funds to generate solid returns in the last one year or so. However, we believe that the long-term potential for Axis Bluechip Fund is bright, given its blue chip holdings. The funds top three holdings include Kotak Mahindra Bank, Bajaj Finance and HDFC Bank.
The fund has a very safe and sound portfolio, which is why it looks good for mutual fund investors to bet on.
