I am planning to start shariah based investments. Could you please guide me? How about Tata Ethical Fund? What would be the returns after 10 years?

Vishal Dhawan, Founder, Plan Ahead Wealth Advisors, responds:

There are a few Sharia-compliant mutual fund schemes in India— some are actively-managed multi cap schemes and there is also an exchange traded fund (ETF) that invests in the Nifty 500 Sharia Index. The Tata Ethical Fund has a good long term track record and has outperformed its benchmark over multiple time frames, but not always. You need to keep in mind that a combination of an active shariah fund and a passive shariah may be most suited for long term portfolio.

You haven't mentioned your risk profile. Invest in equity schemes only if you have a high risk taking ability.
