Equity Poser

From the Following Three Main Routes which do you Think will generate the  Best Equity Returns over the Long Term for You ?

  • Mutual Funds ~Investing in Equity Schemes of Mutual Funds ~ if so ,which scheme type or nature would you choose ?Index Funds,Balanced Funds,Diversified Funds,Theme Funds or Sector Funds ? ~ also do you think SIP is the best way to invest in Mutual Funds ? 
  • PMS ~ Availing of a SEBI Registered Portfolio Management Service ~ This Route is open only to High Net Worth Individuals as minimum accepted is Rs 25 lakhs ~ If so,would you opt for the Discretionary or the Non Discretionary Service ?
  • Direct Equity ~ Invest Directly in Listed Equities through the Primary and Secondary Markets  ~ If so,which Strategy would you adopt for Selection ? Top Down,Bottom Up,Only Large Caps,Only Sensex or Nifty Stocks,Only Mid Caps,Consider even Low Caps etc ~ If you’re conversant with the dynamics of each Investment Philosophy,which would you adopt  Growth,Contrarion or Value Approaches ? Would you go for a well Diversified Portfolio or for Concentration in only a Few Stocks? Also would your decision making be guided by free advice offered by your Broker,Experts and Anchors who offer Advice on Stock Channels and Print and Electronic Media or would you opt for paid advice from a good Equity Advisor by subscribing to their Online Services ~ or would you prefer a paid annual equity advisory service that offers  regular personal interaction with the Expert Advisor on your Portfolio ?
