Should you buy?
This tax-saving fund takes a flexi cap approach but retains a slight tilt towards large-caps, like many of its peers. However, it prefers to maintain sizeable mid-cap presence over small-caps in the rest of the portfolio. The fund manager runs a very compact portfolio with no more than 30 high conviction bets. The portfolio construct is highly index agnostic even in sector positioning. The fund manager prefers high quality, strong cash flow generating companies with long growth runway. The fund does not have a long track record, but in slightly over five years it has exhibited bouts of sharp outperformance interspersed with occasional underperformance. Its aggressive stance lends for higher volatility compared to peers in its category.
