Top 10 Best SIP Mutual Funds to invest in India in 2019 – Choose the one for you today.
From the Present situation of mutual funds in India, it’s indeed becoming a difficult job for mutual fund consultants, financial specialists, as well as AMCs, to continue with the speed in which investors were starting fresh SIPs for last couple quarters. Bearing this in mind now I have chosen to write a blog article on Top 10 Best SIP Mutual Funds to invest in 2019.
Top 10 Best SIP Mutual Funds to invest in 2019- How I selected these funds?
SIP or systematic investment plan investment method has been designed in such a way that it helps in reducing rupee cost averaging. This means more units are acquired when the market is down and vice versa. There are various factors or ratios that I have used in selecting the Top 10 Best SIP Mutual Funds to invest in 2019 such as Alpha, Beta, Standard Deviation, Sharpe Ratio, TER or Total Expense Ratio. I am also very much sure that if one identifies all the factors or ratios as written here and invest in line with his financial goals or plans, he will be in a position to identify best sip mutual funds to invest in 2019. Also, I would recommend that one should take the help of a personal financial planner since he might help you in selecting and quantifying your financial goals.
Alpha is a measure of determining the excess return generated by a fund over and above the average return or the benchmark return. This is also seen as a performance measuring tool of a fund manager. Alpha can be positive or negative.
Why should I see Alpha value in a mutual fund scheme? What does Alpha denote?
This is one of the most crucial factors for selecting outperformers. Alpha tells us how a fund has performed in comparison to its benchmark or industry average. The higher is the Alpha, the fund is the outperformer. Also Alpha denotes the risk adjusted return generated by the fund.
For example, if a mutual fund scheme has an Alpha of 4, it primarily means that the fund has outperformed its benchmark index by 4%. If the benchmark return is 10%, this fund has generated a return of 14%.
A positive Alpha means that the fund manager has been able to generate a return over the expected return and it has performed better as compared to its risk profile. Obviously, the fund manager must be given credit for the same. On the other hand, a negative Alpha means that the fund has not been able to generate sufficient return in comparison to its risk profile.
Thus, one should predominantly choose high alpha value mutual fund scheme since a high alpha value fund has the ability to generate returns over and above the benchmark return has also the potential to come back after the market fall.
Beta denotes the volatility or the systematic risk of an underlying mutual fund scheme. It also denotes the sensitivity of a mutual fund scheme towards the market movements. This means how a particular fund moves in tandem with the market movements or swings. Thus, it can be said that beta measures the periodic fluctuations(rise or fall) of a scheme in comparison to the periodic fluctuations(rise or fall) of the index for a particular period.
Why should I see Beta value in a mutual fund scheme? What does Beta denote?
Beta measures the extent of the underlying fund’s movement in line with the benchmark index. This factor is also very much crucial after Alpha in selecting the best performing fund. It always signifies the systematic risk that a fund bears and how sensitive it is towards the market movements.
The beta of the market or benchmark index is always considered as 1. similarly any fund’s beta value less than 1 signifies lower volatility and higher than 1 signifies higher volatility as compared to the market or benchmark index.
For example, if a mutual fund scheme Z has a beta value of 0.90, it basically denotes the price swing i.e. for every rise or fall of 1 in the market or benchmark index, the value of Z would also rise or fall by 0.90. Thus, if market returns or rise or fall by 10%, the mutual fund return would also rise or fall by 9%. This suggests that how a mutual fund scheme’s NAV would move in line with the market or benchmark index. However, finding the Beta value will be of no use if the portfolio doesn’t closely follow the benchmark.
What is an ideal Beta Value?
- An ideal beta value should be 1. This means the fund’s NAV value is likely to replicate the exact market swing.
- If the beta value is less than 1, this means the NAV of the fund would swing slower than the benchmark.
- If a mutual fund’s beta is more than 1, this means its NAV is likely to swing more than the benchmark.
Thus, the beta value indicates the rise or fall of NAV value of a mutual fund in comparison to its benchmark index like for example Reliance Small Cap funds performance in comparison to NIFTY Small Cap 100 benchmark.

Standard deviation is a statistical tool to measure the extent of deviation of returns from the average value of returns. In statistical technical terms, the Standard deviation measures the dispersion of a set of data from its mean. When we invest in any instruments expecting some returns from it, and if there is any variation of actual return from the anticipated return, standard deviation measures the risk of those instruments.
Why should I see Standard Deviation in a mutual fund scheme? What does Standard Deviation denote?
In finance, the standard deviation is applied to the annual rate of return of an investment to measure the volatility of that investment. This is also known as the historical volatility and is used by the investors to measure the amount of expected volatility. Standard deviation is calculated as the Square root of variance.
The larger the standard deviation, the lower the probability that actual return would be close to the expected return.
For example, if a mutual fund Z has a standard deviation of 5% and an average return of 12%, it means that Z has a tendency of deviating by 5% from its expected average return and may deliver returns between 7% to 17%. Therefore, the standard deviation is directly proportional to the volatility of the portfolio.
Sharpe ratio= (Return of the fund-Risk fee rate)/Standard Deviation of the fund
The Sharpe ratio compares the excess return delivered by the fund over and above the risk-free return rate with its risk measured by Standard Deviation. Higher the ratio, the better it is when similar funds are compared for the same period. This ratio is used to rank funds within the same category. Therefore, this ratio plays a significant role in order to compare mutual funds. This helps an investor to evaluate, analyze the performance of a particular fund as compared to other similar types of fund and helps them to take an informed decision regarding investment in the fund. Higher the Sharpe’s ratio, better the risk-adjusted return of a mutual fund portfolio.
I have considered the funds which have an expense ratio is equal to or below 2.50%. A lower expense ratio helps in generating high fund return over a long term period of investment. Though it keeps on changing on a quarterly basis by the fund houses. Therefore by using the above tools or ratios, one can identify the Top 10 Best SIP Mutual Funds to invest in 2019.
