Top Performing Mutual Funds

What are the top-performing mutual funds? Where should you invest your money?

Deciding on the top-performing mutual funds may not be as challenging as counting the stars in the night sky or counting the hair on a sheep. For the uninitiated, here is the interesting analogy - The stories of Emperor Akbar and his intelligent and incredibly witty advisor Birbal have delighted us for generations. In one such tale, Akbar asked Birbal to answer the exact number of stars in the sky. Birbal's legendary and hilarious response was to bring in a sheep to the court and ask people present to count each hair on the sheep's fleece. Fast-forwarding to the present, as we mentioned, finding a mutual fund scheme will not be as tricky, but you do need to be smart like Birbal.

When choosing the right mutual fund schemes, banks, and Asset Management Companies (AMCs) carefully consider several factors. Aspects like historical performance, a fund's NAV, its objective, asset composition, and much more determine whether you should invest in a particular scheme.

The best performing mutual funds have the potential to give you decent returns over time.
