SHOULD YOU BUY?
This fund continues to embellish its enviable track record, being poised to end another year outperforming both the benchmark and its peers, which it has done consistently over each of the past eight years. The degree of outperformance also continues to impress, despite the alpha decline in the large cap category.
The fund is heavily biased towards large caps, but the average market capitalization of its portfolio is well below the category average. This is due to its relatively higher investment in emerging large caps. The fund manager emphasizes stock selection and does not take sector calls.
The fund’s ability to outperform in both a bullish and bearish market has enabled it to maintain a superior risk-return profile in its category. It remains a top choice in the large-cap fund space.
