manohar lal rampal: I am a retired professional and for last 10-12 years investment has been done through ARNs advisors in MF scheme Regular Growth options. Total MF investment is in the tune of overINR 1.5 Cr. I have a few SIPs amounting to INR 1.5 lakhs/ month.
Recently some friend told me that investment through DIRECT method results in much better returns than regular through ARNs advisors.
Request pls. advise giving one /two examples like GDFC Top 100 (G): 8 years SIP 10,000, total amount incl Lump sum & SIP Rs 25 lakhs, Axis Long Term EQ (G)..SIP INR 12500, total investment INR 30 lakhs. etc. Shall be grateful for kind advise.

Omkeshwar Singh: Sir, Direct plans are suited for Investors well versed with the markets and can take decision without any assistance.

Primary criteria is the selection of good funds and if the same is being done properly with help of mutual funds distributor than it should be continued.

For saving some basis points with direct plan and in wrong selection of funds can do more harm to the overall portfolio

Choice is of Investor, it’s similar to self-medication or doctor’s prescription

rajagopal d: I am 58 years old and i want a secure mutual fund to invest a sum of 10 lacs, which can fetch me decent income every year.
Please suggest.
