## What is Mutual Fund Lump sum Calculator?

Lump sum calculator is a calculator that helps you know how much profit you can expect from mutual funds based on your deposit and expected rate of return. This helps you in defining and planning for your goals according to the amount of deposit you can afford to contribute as lump sum investment.

## How mutual fund Lump sum Calculator works?

It’s very easy to understand how Lump sum investment works.

You deposit a predefined amount for the tenure that you select and based on the monthly rate of return (derived from expected rate of return), you calculate your Lump sum investment returns. We are not talking about past Lump sum returns here, but future returns.

For example, if expected rate of return is 10% in a year in one of the Best Mutual Funds, let’s say, you deposit Rs. 10,000, our calculation will look like for 1 year:

``` = 10% * Rs. 10000 / 100
= Rs. 1000```

So, Rs. 1000 is the profit after 1 year based on expected return.

## Which Mutual fund is Best for 5 Years?

There are many mutual funds that you can invest in. It is important to understand what are the factors you should see while selecting best mutual funds if your goal is for 5 years or more.

Some of the factors include:

• Expense Ratio: this is the fees taken by AMC (Asset Management Company) in order to manage your funds. This is yearly fees and should be as low as possible while selecting mutual fund
• AUM: This is Assets under Management, which means, total amount of money being invested by people in the mutual fund. More money being invested by people, means more trust on this mutual fund. But this is not the case always as some already popular AMC tries to sell specific mutual funds to people who are not aware about mutual fund factors to consider while increasing it’s AUM.
• Past Returns: Although, past returns does not guarantee future returns of a mutual fund, but it is important to check this stat while selecting best mutual fund for SIP for 5 years.
• Stocks Portfolio: Another important factor to check is the list of stocks present in mutual fund portfolio. Every mutual fund has a fund manager associated to it who selects list of stocks in order to maximize returns on your investments. If you invest in stocks or have idea about stock investing or fundamental analysis, you should definitely see the list of stocks present in mutual fund’s stock portfolio.
