This multi-cap fund has outperformed consistently over the years. It has substantially hiked its presence in large-caps in recent years, paring back its earlier sizeable mid-cap exposure. The funds portfolio has also grown in size from 40-odd stocks to around 70 now. While this has not diluted its exposure in its top bets, the portfolio has taken tiny positions in several companies.

The fund manager prefers companies that are currently out of favour owing to short-term blips, but with competitive advantages and scalable business models. Barring 2017, when it lagged far behind its peers, the fund has consistently ranked in the top two quartiles since 2012. With its healthy risk return profile compared to many peers, the fund is a worthy bet in the multi-cap segment.
