The fund's aggressive approach to the most dynamic set of stocks does involve higher risk, but this is compensated by the excess returns over the benchmark.
The fund comfortably outpaces the benchmark since launch in February 2005. (Past performance may or may not be sustained in the future). There is another aspect to this track record.
The flexibility to invest up to 35% in large-cap stocks serves as a useful anchor for the portfolio, especially when market conditions are challenging.

Sundaram S.M.I.L.E Fund is underpinned by the acclaimed credentials of Sundaram Mutual Fund in dedicated funds in the large-cap and mid-cap category. Investing is a marathon. Run it with a S.M.I.L.E.
