Disclaimer:

  • Fund size, expense ratio, turnover ratio and duration are latest available
    returns up to 1 year are absolute, returns in excess of 1 year are compounded annualized
  • NA: not applicable since the fund hasn’t yet completed the relevant tenor
  1.  Passively managed funds like index funds and exchange-traded funds aim to mimic their benchmark indices so their outperformance or underperformance does not matter.
  2.  As this is an exchange-traded fund, a demat account is necessary to buy and sell its units.
  3.  Dividend plan considered instead of growth on account of lack of latter’s history.
  4.  Considered under different categories by Value Research’s classification, but we have put them in the mid-cap category on account of their nature.
