Investment Considerations

The fund house stated in a release that India is positioned for sustained growth, supported by a burgeoning manufacturing sector. It said government incentives and a robust supply-chain infrastructure will support the role of the manufacturing sector in India's growth story.

Major economies diversifying production away from China to avoid supply chain shocks could enhance manufacturing in India. Providing the Western revival in manufacturing with ancillaries and components could also stimulate production in India, the fund house said. The scheme is benchmarked against S&P BSE India Manufacturing TRI which has provided 23.64 per cent and 20.47 per cent returns in 3 and 5 years respectively, as per Association of Mutual Funds of India (AMFI) data.
