After Sectoral/Thematic Funds, large-cap funds have recorded the second-highest portfolio value of 1,13,85,481 among Growth and Equity Oriented Schemes. According to the monthly report of AMFI, large-cap funds have a Net Assets Under Management of Rs 2,18,332.30 Cr and an average Net Assets Under Management of Rs 2,17,576.75 Cr for the month of September 2021. During the market surge, equity investors may look at bluechip funds, which are large-cap funds that are mandated by SEBI to invest at least 80% of their capital in the stocks of the top 100 companies by market capitalization. This suggests that investors with long-term financial goals of more than 5 years with conservative risk tolerance capacity and who are not willing to accept high-risk volatility bets such as mid-cap and small-cap funds, can start their SIP in large-cap funds for relatively less volatile or risk-adjusted returns. So, here are three bluechip funds that have achieved a 5-star rating from Value Research and have delivered massive gains over the previous year.
