More to Mutual Fund Investing Than Just Returns

While selecting Mutual Funds, the most common factor used for finalizing investments are historic returns. While returns can be a good measure to judge performance of a scheme, other parameters are equally important while evaluating mutual funds. Let's understand few factors beyond returns which can help us better evaluate MF schemes in detail:

Key factors to evaluate a MF

1. Standard Deviation

Standard deviation measures the investment's risk by quantifying the dispersion of returns from the mean.

2. Beta

Beta measures a mutual fund's sensitivity to market movements, helping investors assess its risk and return potential.

3. Downside Capture Ratio

Downside Capture Ratio assesses a Fund Manager's performance relative to a benchmark during market declines, gauging their ability to limit losses.

4. Sharpe Ratio

The Sharpe ratio in mutual funds assesses risk-adjusted returns, helping investors evaluate a fund's performance relative to its volatility.
