SHOULD YOU BUY?
This tax-saving fund retains a tilt towards large-caps, like many peers in its category. It has also maintained its large exposure to the financial sector—currently, 39% of its portfolio. While the portfolio size has not changed much in recent years, the fund currently takes larger positions in its top bets.

This allows the high-conviction bets to have a meaningful influence on the fund’s return. The portfolio turnover is on the higher side, which indicates that the fund manager seeks to capitalise on emerging trends. The fund has a solid long-term track record and has consistently beaten its category average, barring the past two years. The fund’s risk profile has changed, and now it exhibits higher volatility. Yet, it enjoys a healthier risk-return profile compared to many peers.
