Should you buy?
A struggling fund under its previous ownership, this fund has strengthened processes under new leadership since the PGIM India takeover. Under its present fund manager, the fund places firm emphasis on low debt, strong cash flows and clean corporate governance track record. It avoid bets on sectors with high or rising competitive intensity. The fund manager prefers running an index agnostic portfolio. Its performance has shown a remarkable turnaround since 2018, and now boasts a superior risk-return profile in its category. While it has lagged over the past year, the fund’s refined approach and quality leadership lends comfort for the long term.
