The month of July saw equity markets in India undergo a sharp correction while the debt market saw a good rally. This was due to the effects of budget announcements, muted corporate earnings growth etc. Small cap equity funds continue to see highest investments on our app.

It is good to see that investors continue making investment decisions based on long term performance of the schemes in this category, even though their short term returns are poor. Investors should also keep in mind that debt categories such as Gilt should be looked with at least a 3 year investment horizon.

  1. HDFC Small Cap Fund Direct-Growth
  2. Mirae Asset Emerging Bluechip Fund Direct-Growth
  3. Mirae Asset Tax Saver Fund Direct-Growth
  4. SBI Banking & Financial Services Fund Direct-Growth
  5. SBI Small Cap Fund Direct-Growth
