With SEBI’s recent circular on fund categorization (read about it here), we are happy to let you know that at FundsIndia’s research, we have followed a structured methodology to categorise funds based on market cap (in the case of equity) or based on duration and credit risk profile (in the case of debt), long before such a regulation came into place. Our process is not far from what has been mandated now as a circular. These formed the basis for categorising and comparing funds and rating them inhouse.
Further, our list of investment worthy funds, called ‘Select funds’ has, since 2012, a process in place to ensure we offer only funds that have unique and clearly defined strategies and avoid, wherever possible, multiple funds that follow like-styles. While SEBI’s current circular aims to reduce duplication in fund styles, at FundsIndia, we are proud to have had such a process in place 5 years ahead of this circular.
Rest assured, that once fund houses complete the categorisation of funds and consolidate them, we will be able to finetune our offering to a further compact list of funds and ensure you stay with the ones that are not hurt by such consolidation exercises and continue with a clear strategy.
