That is a big myth. Mutual funds do not assure you any returns on the funds. In fact, SEBI explicitly prohibits the mutual funds from assuring any kind of returns to fund holders. Whether you invest in a debt fund, index fund or an equity fund, there is an element of systematic and unsystematic risk involved. As a fund manager, he can only manage these risks better and improve on asset selection. We have seen how assured return schemes have faltered in the past. There is nothing like assured returns in mutual funds.
