● The costs of investing in mutual funds — loads, expenses and management fee.

● Investing in gold, real-estate and art through mutual funds.

● The safety net of mutual fund investing — information disclosure and investor protection stipulated by SEBI.

● Smart Beta and performance attribution.

● New in 5th Edition — SEBI's new mutual fund categories.
