Basics of Mutual Fund, Opportunities of MF schemes and Learn types of MF investments. The amount deposited by a large number of investors is called a mutual fund, which is put into a fund. The fund manager uses his investment management skills to invest this money in various financial instruments. Mutual funds invest in many ways, which determines their risk and returns. When many investors invest in a fund together, the fund is divided into equal parts called unit.
For example, suppose some friends want to buy a piece of land together. The price of a piece of land of hundred square yards is one lakh rupees. Now if you divide this fund into units of ten rupees then 10,000 units will be formed. Investors can buy as many units as they wish, according to their investment capacity. If you have only one thousand rupees for investment then you can buy a hundred units. In the same proportion, you too became the owner of that investment (land).
Now suppose that the value of this one lakh investment has increased to one hundred and twenty thousand after one month. Now, according to this investment, the unit price will be calculated, then the unit of ten rupees has now become twelve rupees. The investor who bought a hundred units in one thousand rupees, according to the twelve rupees per unit, now his investment (100×12) has been Rs. 1200.
Based on the amount invested by you as an investor, how many units you own. Therefore, an investor can also be known as a unitholder.
With this, you can see that an investor who can not make big investments, has the facility of investing in small units. Apart from this, the biggest benefit of Mutual Fund MF is that an investor who does not have much information about the market leaves his investment in the hands of experts. These experts determine where, how and when to invest.

Net Asset Value, or NAV, means directly the value of the total property. Net asset value, or NAV, in any of the Mutual Fund funds, after deducting the liabilities from the total value of all the shares of the portfolio, including cash, the outstanding balance is obtained by dividing it by the total number of units remaining.
NAV fund is per unit’s total asset value (excluding expenditure) and at the end of each day’s business, it is calculated by the asset management company (AMC) of that fund. On any given day, if that MF is terminated, then the unit holder of that mutual fund will get the price for each unit instead. In a way, the NAV is the book value of any mutual fund unit.
Most of the unit’s base value in the Mutual Fund Mutual Fund is Rs 10 or 100 rupees. In each business day, the NAV curve of the unit increases according to the market value of the fund’s portfolio.
NAV refers to the growth of the unit of a mutual fund mutual fund. If you invest Rs 12 per unit in a fund at NAV and after one year, if the NAV of that unit goes up to 15 rupees per unit then that fund has 25% growth.

Large caps with a big percentage of return is more important than mid-cap/small-cap fund with a small percentage of returns.

GST is implemented in India from July 1st, 2017. What is GST? How it is different from previous tax structure. Consider this business structure, Buying Raw Materials
Manufacturing -> Sell To Warehouse or Wholesaler -> Sale To Retailer -> Final Sale To Consumer ->
For example, A shoe manufacturer need leather and plastics after production he sells to the wholesale team, Hence they will add labels with additional value to the products. After this, The retailer buys this product and after separate packaging process, they will increase the value to the shoes. But GST will be levied on all transactions happening during the entire manufacturing chain. That means instead of the excise duty, State wise VAT and the point of sale VAT there is only GST. The shopkeeper has paid a tax when he bought the item from the wholesaler. To recover that amount, he passes the liability to the customer. GST means the final liability on the end consumer is decreased.
There 3 Kind of GST
CGST: where the revenue will be collected by the central government.
SGST: where the revenue will be collected by the state governments for intra-state sales
IGST: where the revenue will be collected by the central government for inter-state sales
Goods and Service Tax (GST) as the name suggest is one single tax on the supply of goods and services, right from the Manufacturing to the ultimate delivery to a customer.
ie, The final consumer will thus bear only the GST charged by the last dealer in the supply chain, with set-off benefits at all the previous stages.
