HSBC Equity Fund
Why equity funds?
All of us aspire for enough wealth to be able to finance at least some of our dreams. Giving our family the very best, educating our children, indulging in a hobby - things that can make our lives more rewarding. One of the best chances of doing so is by investing wisely and regularly today. When one is investing for the long-term, one has to look at generating a return that is greater than inflation. For example, if you get a return of ten per cent from your investment and inflation is eight per cent then the real return you have made is two per cent. Studies show that equity and equity linked instruments tend to outperform all other forms of investments in the long run. Hence you should look at investing some portion of your money in equity markets with an aim to meet future goals comfortably.
