Edelweiss Mutual Fund
Asset management company Edelweiss Mutual Fund has launched a film for Diwali extending the #AdviceZarooriHai campaign with an aim to lay emphasis on the need of taking the right advice before we do anything in life and primarily investing. This film has been shot in association with the Mumbai Fire Safety brigade, which has given tips on how to celebrate safe and secure Diwali.
Prior to the Diwali film, a series of three 30-second digital films were launched, highlighting the need for advice while investing in mutual funds. This campaign is part of the Investor Education Program of Edelweiss Mutual Fund.
Most investors are not equipped to understand the various categories and kinds of mutual fund schemes/products. The cost of going wrong and the impact on the investment portfolio by choosing a wrong investment is higher than the advice cost. Hence, advice is important to choose the right fund suitable to the investors risk profile and goal fulfilment.
