Top 5 Sector Mutual Funds to invest in 2016


These top 5 sector mutual funds in India have been analyzed and shortlisted based on below key parameters.

  • Picked based on highest returns received in the last 5 to 10 years across various sectors.
  • These funds invest only in specific sectors and are very high risk. One has to keep an eye on the sector and in case of any downturn in this sector, one should exit.
  • Ranked based on short term returns too. Since most of the funds gave negative returns in the last 1 years due to market volatility, we have picked-up the funds which were less downside compared to peers in the last 3 months to 1 year.
  • Since these are sector based funds, Crisil or Value Research Online would give less importance in ranking and they would avoid giving ranking for such funds.
  • AUMs (Assets under management) > 100 Crores. This proves investor confidence among these top mutual funds.
