Canara Robecco Bluechip Fund: Do not invest a big amount in SIP

We suggest that you start with a small sum by way of SIP. At 53,000 points on the Sensex, the chances of the markets falling are brighter, than rallying significantly. We advocate a small sum now and when the markets fall, you can increase the amount of SIP. That would be a great strategy to adopt. Canara Robecco Bluechip Fund has investments in stocks like HDFC Bank, ICICI Bank, Infosys, Reliance Industries etc. Investors who have a long-term view should begin with small amounts.

This fund has investments in largecap stocks and almost 93.9% of the funds are invested. The fund is an open ended fund with a net asset value of Rs 38.51 under the growth plan and assets under management of a pretty decent Rs 3,308 crores.
