Scheme Specific FAQs
Is this scheme suitable for me?
Parag Parikh Long Term Equity Fund (PPLTEF) is suitable for all investors who are willing to commit their investible surplus to the stockmarket for a period of five years or more and are seeking a mutual fund scheme which adheres to the time-tested principles of value investing. Our portfolio only includes those stocks which conform to our strict stock selection filters. Robust and disciplined processes guide our actions. We ignore factors such as market momentum, current market fancies, etc. We also steadfastly follow a buy-and-hold approach, which automatically results in a low churn ratio and consequently results in reduced transaction costs for our investors.
