  1. ‘Mutual Fund Portfolio Service’ it is my humble suggestion that it would be better performance , if one select the equity mf by using ‘Step-by-Step Guide to Selecting a Mutual Fund ‘ on this site. one may compare the 10 yrs’ yearly returns given by them with others, and check their claim. disclosure: i got high regard of equitymaster,, quantumamc for their services to investor community and honesty.
