This fund has always been both valuation and quality conscious, unwilling to compromise on either for quick gains. It selects companies which have great managements, free cash flows, decent long-term ROCEs and competitive advantages. It has a CAGR of about 19 per cent since its launch, with a low portfolio turnover of 25 per cent, is a testimony to the success of its buy and hold credo. Despite the lag in the last one year, the fund's five-year returns are ahead of the category by about 2 percentage points, at about 34 per cent, and the 10-year CAGR is 3 percentage points ahead, at 20 per cent. The fund is a good option in a shaky market. It handled well the bear phases in 2008 and 2011. The fund is, however, not accepting both new SIPs and lump-sum investments currently and only older SIPs continue to be accepted. Wait till the fund starts accepting new inflows.
