  1. please tell me about the performance of L&T emerging business fund.I am investing in this scheme from past 2 years and yet my return in negative.Should i continue in this fund?

    1. Hi Prakash, this small cap fund was launched < 5 years back. Most of the small cap and midcap funds have not been performing well due to down trend in small cap and midcap stocks. We could see some positive movement in the last few months. It is showing positive signs. You can wait for some more time before you take the call

  2. Hi Suresh,

    I invest in both L&T Midcap and HDFC Midcap since last year, where HDFC Midcap outperform L&T. However many reasoning that huge AUM of HDFC Midcap is an obstacle for its performance in long term. Is that true? Do you see change in market dynamics affect funds with large AUM and drag it’s performance? I hold other funds such as Franklin India Smaller Companies and Kotak Standard multicap where their AUM is large as well. Should an investor worry about large AUM and invest in other better performing funds with lower AUM? Your views please.

    Regards,
    Saravana

    1. don’t worry about AUM as this is not an hurdle at all. When it is going big, fund manager anyways are pausing the investments into such funds.

      1. Great.. thanks
