Investors are enjoying mutual fund returns during this bull run. While there are several mid-cap / small cap mutual funds, only a few funds are doing good. Returns for the past one year from mutual funds,  might be tempting for you to invest in many funds. It is equally important for us to check the last 5 year returns for those funds, their ranking and investment strategy before investing in such funds. Which are the best mid-cap and small mutual funds that are rocking and doing good in this bull run ?

How I classified Best Midcap / Small cap funds that are rocking in bullrun?

While there are a few mid-cap / small cap mutual funds which have been performing well and beating benchmarks, we are not considering them owing to their short performance history. One example could be is Reliance small cap fund which has earned more than 150% in last 1 year. However this fund is existing only in last 3 years. Consistent performing mutual funds that have provided good returns in the last 5 year + good performance in this bullrun of last 1 year, their crisil ranking, value research ranking are some of the parameters considered in identifying these top mid-cap/small-cap funds.

    Sir, You have been very kind, replying every individual. Kindly tell me your reason for NOT recommending SIP in – SBI Small & Midcap Fund (G), SBI Pharma Fund (G), Franklin Build India Fund (G), Can Robeco Emerging Equity Fund (G), Axis Large Cap Equity Fund (G) and UTI MNC Fund(G) for better returns, in current market conditions?

    • Darshan, There are several funds in the market. Some are top performers, some are avg and some are worst. I cannot recommend all top performers. But I would pick-up top 5 or 10 and recommend. Among the ones you indicated, I can say Franklin Build India fund is good.

    Dear Mr. Suresh,
    I am an NRI and interested to invest in mutual funds and stocks, and there is a limited information is available in this region about it.Luckily I found your website and start studying all your comments for the last six months.Two months back opened a demat account.and start SIP in Franklin high groth co fund, Hdfc midcap opp fund and icici blue chip fund and doing some shares also. All are doing well .Also I invested some surplus money in BSL dynamic bond fund(2lacs).but the benefit is not interesting even compared with SIPs. So I think it may be nice to with draw (after 3 months)and invest in shares for a long goal and do some SIP of 5k as well.Please share your thoughts. May God bless you for the great service you doing for us

    Thank you very much
    Hussain

    Dear Mr.Suresh

    Hope you are fine and in good health. Earlier I had invested in mutual funds considering your advice and suggestions.

    Now I wish to invest Rs 1 lakh each for myself and my spouse. Can you suggest some good funds for this proposed investment corpus? I would provide some details to you about my plan:
    1. To invest Rs 1 lakh each in my name and in my wife’s name.
    2. To invest as lump sum, NOT SIP.
    3. To remain invested for minimum 5 years.
    4. I would prefer a moderate risk profile for the two of us.

    Should we divide our corpus into 2-3 or more funds ? Which group or funds will be better-large cap or mid & small cap or a combination of funds? Please suggest specific names of funds.

    Awaiting your reply.

    Regards

    Dr.Syamal Modi

    • Hello Dr. Syamal Modi. Investment in lump sum in mutual funds should be done carefully. You can invest in debt funds / liquid mutual funds and do STP over a period of 10 months to 1 year to large cap mutual fund. Investing in midcap/small cap funds would be riskly for 1 year SIP

        Hello Suresh,

        By investing lumpsum in a mutual fund, we will lose the advantage of NAV change during the period. This is one big disadvantage of course. but apart from this, is there any other disadvantage of investing lumpsum?

        Thanks

        Sadhana.

        • Hi Sadhana, Market volatality cannot be encashed when you invest lumpsum. Beyond that if markets are at peak, you invest at higher NAV, and you may not gain much
