Bank accounts and lockers lose value over time, while fixed income instruments and gold cannot beat rising prices. Equities are the only asset class that consistently beats inflation, with real estate being the only exception. For retail investors, diversified equity mutual funds are the best way to invest in stocks as they require minimal paperwork and diversify risk across a basket of stocks. Different types of diversified equity funds include large-cap, mid-cap, small-cap, multi-cap, and flexi-cap funds.
