Invest Smart 2024: Elevate your financial game with expert advice

As the curtains close on 2023, the dawn of 2024 presents a prime opportunity to reassess investment strategies and financial objectives. Addressing these concerns and offering guidance for the upcoming year, Avni Raja, the host of Invest Smart, engaged in a discussion with Kalpen Parekh, MD & CEO, DSP Mutual Fund

Reflecting on the investor landscape of 2023, the conversation began by acknowledging the market's volatility. However, a notable shift in investor mindset emerged, a disciplined commitment to the investment journey. Parekh highlighted how investors remained steadfast during market fluctuations, utilising downturns as opportunities to accumulate units, reflecting an enhanced focus on long-term investing.

Parekh attributed this shift to increased inflows, especially through systematic investment plans (SIPs) and asset allocation funds. Such techniques aim to minimize negative experiences, ensuring investors withstand market extremities by acquiring more units and cushioning portfolios with diversified assets.

Looking ahead to 2024, Parekh advised investors to moderate return expectations. Cautioning against anchoring future returns to past surges, he emphasised the cyclicality of markets and the potential for volatility, suggesting a realistic expectation of around 10-12% returns in equities over the long term.

Regarding portfolio rebalancing, Parekh urged a cautious approach, recommending adjustments only if allocations have significantly deviated from the desired levels due to market shifts. Advocating for a 'hands-off' approach in most cases, he highlighted the importance of allowing investments to compound over extended periods.

In selecting equity funds, Parekh underscored the significance of a fund manager's articulated investment approach. Recommending multi-cap or flexi-cap funds, which encompass various styles and market caps, he suggested these as starting points. For inexperienced investors, index funds offer exposure to market returns with minimal complexity.

Addressing the prospect of sectoral funds, Parekh highlighted opportunities in banking, financial services, healthcare, and select global companies. However, he cautioned against overweighing portfolios with these sectoral exposures, advising prudence and thorough research.

Parekh's parting advice centered on discipline, embracing a long-term approach, and refraining from frequent portfolio interference, highlighting that true wealth creation stems from consistent and patient investing.
