Investing can help you achieve your goals and smart investing can help ride through tough waters. Not entirely convinced with the statement?

Well, data suggests that majority of Dalal Street’s top money managers for high net worth individuals outperformed Nifty50 in August when the index gave a negative return of 0.8 percent.

Weak global backdrop and persistent selling by foreign investors has pulled down equity markets. But, structural steps unveiled by the union finance minister in the last two weeks of August, helped recoup some losses towards the end of the month.
