The fund has been giving around 8.73% returns to those who have stayed invested for 5 years.

How will Tata Dividend Yield Fund perform in the future?

Needless to say no one can predict the future of markets. We have firm belief in the future prospects of the Indian economy. If the Indian economy grows at 9% then the leading companies tend to do well. When the companies do well their stock prices follows their performance. So if you expect the economy to grow at 8% then you can expect top performing mutual funds to give you returns in excess of 14%.

Mutual fund schemes that have exposure to mid-sized companies tend to show results when their bet on few companies comes true. We advise you to avoid too much of star gazing and future prediction. Be reminded that equities are one of the asset classes that have the potential to beat inflation. Your aim for core portfolio should be to beat inflation.

How much to invest?

Minimum one time investment is Rs 5000 and minimum SIP is Rs 500 per month. Do not make Tata Dividend Yield Fund as part of your core portfolio. Core portfolio is investments that are made for your basic goals and makes up about 70% of your investment portfolio. Do not make the mistake of investing in too many mutual fund schemes. At any point of time do not have more than two mutual fund schemes in your core portfolio.

When to enter?

Now! There is no good time to invest rather than now. Do not try to time the market and especially so if it is an SIP. Do not follow news channel and other experts to know the right time to invest. In the long run it does not matter. Mutual fund is unlike a stock where you are looking at the right price. This job will be done by the mutual fund scheme manager. If you have planned your investments and decided on the amount you want to invest do not think further, just go ahead.

When to exit?

Withdraw when your goals are close to achievement. Do not remove the money when the markets go up or down. Do not panic. Stick to your goals.

How frequently you need to monitor the performance?

Once you invest in the fund do not get into the habit of checking the NAV daily or monthly. Review the performance once a year. Too much attention is not good.
