Best mutual fund SIP portfolios to invest in 2019

Are you looking for an equity mutual fund portfolio to achieve your long-term financial goals?

Here is a monthly update on our recommended mutual fundSIP portfoliosto invest in 2019. We are happy to tell you that there are no changes in the portfolios in April.

Well, we put together the best mutual fundSIPportfolios to help investors looking to invest in a mix ofmutual fundsto achieve their various financial goals. If you are looking for a mutual fund portfolio to achieve your long-term financial goals, you are at the right place. We have put together some mutual fund portfolios that investors can choose based on their risk profile and SIP amount.

Our reason to launch these portfolios was simple. We have observed that many mutual fund investors find it extremely difficult to stitch together to a few schemes (or create a mutual fund portfolio, in technical parlance) that would help them to meet their various long-term financial goals. This is especially true for new investors.

Indeed, creating a mutual fund portfolio involves several complicated steps. To begin with, you should shortlist some schemes with a consistent long-term performance record. Next, you should pick the schemes that are in line with your risk profile andinvestmentgoals.

Then you would hit the next roadblock: how to fix the composition of the portfolio? The task is not finished yet. You should also need to monitor and review the performance of the portfolio regularly and take remedial steps if needed. Too much to handle?

Well, do not worry. That is why we are here mhas created mutual fund SIP portfolios for three different individual risk profiles: conservative, moderate and aggressive. We have also considered three SIP baskets between Rs 2,000-5,000, between Rs 5,000-10,000 and above Rs 10,000 while creating these portfolios. These are the schemes that made it into our recommendation list:

ET.com Mutual Funds has employed the following parameters for shortlisting the equity mutual fund schemes.

1. Mean rolling returns: Rolled daily for the last three years.

2. Consistency in the last three years: Hurst Exponent, H is used for computing the consistency of a fund. The H exponent is a measure of randomness of NAV series of a fund. Funds with high H tend to exhibit low volatility compared to funds with low H.

i) When H = 0.5, the series of return is said to be a geometric Brownian time series. These type of time series is difficult to forecast.

ii) When H is less than 0.5, the series is said to be mean reverting.

iii) When H is greater than 0.5, the series is said to be persistent. The larger the value of H, the stronger is the trend of the series

3. Downside risk: We have considered only the negative returns given by the mutual fund scheme for this measure.

Z = Y/number of days taken for computing the ratio

4. Outperformance: It is measured by Jensens Alpha for the last three years. Jensens Alpha shows the risk-adjusted return generated by a mutual fund scheme relative to the expected market return predicted by the Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM). Higher Alpha indicates that the portfolio performance has outstripped the returns predicted by the market.
