These are the funds that are currently recommended by Goalwise. They are chosen based on our market-beating fund selection strategy and suitability for the goal under which they are provided. We update this list once every year (most likely in April - at the beginning of the new financial year).

We also allow our investors to choose their own funds while investing (but we do not encourage it since we won't know when to replace custom selected funds if they start doing poorly - so in effect such goals then go out of the purview of our advisory for rebalancing/switching etc). We have online tie-ups with the following Mutual Fund companies and all of their funds are available with us:

Axis Mutual Funds
Baroda Pioneer Mutual Funds
Birla Sun Life Mutual Funds
Canara Robeco Mutual Funds
DSP Blackrock Mutual Funds
Franklin Templeton Mutual Funds
HDFC Mutual Funds
ICICI Prudential Mutual Funds
IDFC Mutual Funds
Invesco Mutual Funds
Kotak Mutual Funds
L&T Mutual Funds
Mirae Mutual Funds
Reliance Mutual Funds
SBI Mutual Funds
TATA Mutual Funds
UTI Mutual Funds
