Why invest in Multicap Fund at this high Market Level?
Very recently a post attracted my attention, which entails the growth story of Indian Economy in last 7 years.
In this post Mr John Chambers, a top American corporate leader and former Cisco CEO, said that he is looking at India as the next big economic force in Asia after China’s recent unpredictability and crackdown on tech. Following are figures showing how India on different economic parameters have displaced developed economies in ranking. In the year 2014 the GDP of India was ranked on 10th is now ranking on 6th by displacing France, Brazil, Italy and Russia. Other parameters are likewise, Auto market ranking from 7 to 4, Electricity generation from 4 to 3, Mobile phone production from 12 to 2, Steel production from 4 to 2, Climate change Performance from 31 to 10, Global Innovation index from 83 to 46, WGI Governance Index from 103 to 49, etc. These figures give you opportunity to read between the lines.
Mr John Chambersfurther comments enthisiatically, which really boosted my moral and conviction in Indian economy, is “ Being the hottest Global Market in both the listed and unlisted worlds, India is literally on a Roll. If I am batting on 1 country in Asia, It’s India”, If batting on 2 countries in Asia, it’s India twice.”
As a man of financial industry I am definite to follow conviction of Mr John Chambers to employ my money to work for me. There is no other thought than to invest my money in India.
What Category of funds are available based on ?
There are so many companies listed in Indian share market? And there always remain a confusion in Indian common investor that which category of mutual fund Scheme to invest.
There are majorly 3 categories of Mutual Fund are presented by Indian Mutual Fund companies as far as Capitalization of companies are concerned namely Large Cap Funds, Mid Cap Funds and Small Cap Funds. And they predominantly invest money in Large Cap, Mid cap and Small Cap companies respectively.
Each category has its own management style, different Fund Managers and different performance over a period of timesrespectively.
What is Multi Cap Fund: ?
There is another very attractive Mutual Fund category available as per SEBI (Securities and Exchange Board of India) guidelines, that is Multi Cap Fund, which helps you to invest across all capitalization from Indian Share Markets. As per SEBI guidelines Fund Manager has to invest 25% money in Large Cap companies, 25% in Mid Cap and 25% in Small Cap companies and rest 25% based on opportunity available and cash.
HDFC Mutual Fund and Axis Mutual Fund and IDFC MF launched multi-cap schemes are now open for subscription. Moreover, Aditya Birla Sun Life Multi-Cap Fund and Kotak Multi-cap Fund were launched in May and September 2021, respectively. In the month Dec 2021,Multicap Funds from Indian Mutual Funds space garnered a big chunk of around Rs 10500 Cr. This shows the confidence of Indian Investors in this category. Reason why this category got attention of Indian investors, is its composition and helping investors to not to depend on only one or other capitalization-based schemes but to invest in all categories at the same time. No need to put pressure on mind to choose from Large, Mid and Small Cap schemes.
