Most new comes to mutual funds start their investment journey with this question. Often, they ask their friends and colleagues to find out the answer.
Others try to find the answer to the query online with the help of a search engine. In short, most new mutual fund investors want a ready-made list of mutual fund schemes to invest.
However, this investment strategy has many pitfalls. For example, an online search would often take investors to websites that list mutual fund schemes based on their short-term performance. Sometimes, schemes from a single category may dominate the list because it is the flavour of the season.
Friends or colleagues might provide a few names, but those schemes might not be suitable for you.
Simply put, the query need not yield fruitful results.

- Axis Bluechip Fund
- ICICI Prudential Bluechip Fund
- L&T Midcap Fund
- HDFC Mid-Cap Opportunities Fund

Aggressive hybrid schemes (or erstwhile balanced schemes or equity-oriented hybrid schemes) are ideal for newcomers to equity mutual funds.
These schemes invest in a mix of equity (65-80 per cent) and debt (20-35). Because of this hybrid portfolio they are considered relatively less volatile than pure equity schemes that invest the entire corpus only in stocks. Aggressive hybrid schemes are the best investment vehicle for very conservative equity investors investors looking to create long-term wealth without much volatility.

Some equity investors want to play safe even while investing in stocks. Large cap schemes are meant for such individuals. These schemes invest in top 100 stocks and they are relatively safer than other pure equity mutual fund schemes.
They are also relatively less volatile than mid cap and small cap schemes. In short, you should invest in large cap schemes if you are looking for modest returns with relative stability.

A regular equity investor (with a moderate risk appetite) looking to invest in the stock market need not look beyond multi cap mutual funds or diversified equity schemes. These schemes invest across market capitalisations and sectors, based on the view of the fund manager.
A regular investor can benefit from the uptrend in any of the sectors, categories of stocks by investing in these schemes.
What about aggressive investors looking to pocket extra returns by taking extra risk? Well, they can bet on mid cap and small cap schemes.

Mid cap schemes invest mostly in medium-sized companies and small cap funds invest in smaller companies in terms of market capitalisation. These schemes can be volatile, but they also have the potential to offer superior returns over a long period.
You can invest in these mutual fund categories if you have a long-term investment horizon and an appetite for higher risk.
