Should You Buy
This fund retains a large-cap tilt like many peers in this category, but to a lesser degree. It continues to carry sizeable presence in midcaps. The fund attempts to invest in businesses having healthy return ratios, cash flows and sound management. The portfolio is heavily diversified, yet retains some large positions in its top bets. The fund’s track record until a few years ago was very underwhelming, being a laggard among peers. However, the fund has seen a impressive tunaround in the hands of its current fund manager. With a strong emphasis on healthy risk-adjusted return, the fund is emerging a good alternative in its category.
