Major risk factors you should consider before investing in such funds
One should consider some of these risk factors / negative factors before investing.
1) This fund would invest a minimum of 25% each in large cap, Midcap and smallcap stocks. This kind of portfolio allocation is relatively new and we do not know how such allocation would perform in medium to long term.
2) This scheme would invest in smallcap and Midcap stocks. While such stocks can provide high returns in the long term, these are high risk.
3) This mutual fund would invest up to 50% in derivatives, which is high risk.
4) It invests in fixed income options where there is interest rate risk, price risk, credit risk, liquidity risk and pre-payment risk.
5) This mutual fund would invest up to 20% in foreign assets. There are country risk and currency risk.
Performance of existing Multi Cap Funds
There are multicap funds which have been investing without any 25% minimum limit in large cap, Midcap and smallcap. However, due to change in SEBI rule, these funds started aligning to this new rule in the last few months. While it might not be appropriate to refer such multicap funds, here is the performance of these funds in the last 3 to 10 years time frame.
|Fund Name||3 Year
|5 Year Annualised||10 Year Annualised|
|Invesco India Multicap Fund||6.2%||12.6%||15.6%|
|Principal Multi Cap Growth Fund||6.7%||14.0%||13.0%|
|BNP Paribas Multi Cap Fund||7.6%||12.3%||12.7%|

Should you invest in Aditya Birla Sun Life Multi-Cap Fund NFO?
Aditya Birla Sun Life Multi Cap Fund invests a minimum of 25% in large cap, Midcap and smallcap stocks. New Multi Cap Funds rule is different from the existing ones till few months back, hence we do not know how allocation might benefit investors in short, medium and long term. High risk investors can invest in this scheme for medium to long term perspective. If you don’t want to test these new multi-cap funds, you can opt for existing flex-cap mutual funds that have a proven track record.
