What works for the fund

  • Outperformance wrt Nifty 50: The Nifty Value 20 Index has comfortably outperformed Nifty in the last 5 year period (as seen in the chart below). However, the inception date for this index is March 2014, and hence the fund does not have a 10-year track record.
  • Lower risk as compared to Nifty 50: The fund has a lower Standard Deviation and Beta as compared to Nifty 50 index. This is impressive, as this index has delivered better returns than Nifty 50 with a lower risk profile.
  • More favourable valuations as compared to Nifty 50: Given its value tilt, the index is trading at more favourable valuations (lower P/E, lower P/B) as compared to Nifty 50. It also has a higher dividend yield.


  • Limited performance history (Started only in March 2014). 
  • Given the recent rally, even the "value stocks" among the Nifty 50 are trading at very high valuations. The fund could be impacted in case of a correction.

While the performance history is limited, the fund seems to be a good alternative to buying the Nifty 50 index, given its lower risk and higher return profile historically. The fund is also expected to have a lower drawdown as compared to Nifty 50.
