Review – Nippon India (Reliance) Tax Saver Fund
It has been noticed that the performance of this ELSS category fund has been consistently beaten its benchmark & category over multi-trailing time-period generating 37.29% returns for 1-year and 13.38% returns for 3-year period respectively. (as mentioned in the table above).
Not to miss, it also follows a blend of growth & value investing and seeks to invest in different sectors that are expected to perform better over the long-term.
With the passing of a few key reforms by the Government, the domestically oriented sectors such as Industrials, Consumer Discretionary, and Financial account for almost two-thirds of the portfolio whilst the export-oriented sectors such as Information technology and Healthcare remains the least. Whilst picking the stocks, the fund manager attempts to add companies with strong growth prospects that are being traded at a substantial discount to their intrinsic value. He (the fund manager) attempts to balance both the valuation and growth aspects whilst investing.
ELSS: Fund has 98.48% investment in the Indian stocks of which 58.65% is in largecap stocks, 22.62% is in midcap stocks, & 14.25% in smallcap stocks.
Suitable For: Investors who are looking to invest for at-least 3 years & interested in additional benefits of Income Tax saving apart from high-returns. Also, these investors should be ready for 3-year lock-in-period and moderate losses.
The objective is to generate long-term capital-appreciation from a portfolio that is invested pre-dominantly in equity & equity-related instruments.
