Should you buy?

Earlier running a fluid stance with a large cap bias, the fund hiked its presence in mid caps after repositioning as a large & mid cap fund. The fund manager retains fluidity in investing style —not married to either growth or value—and takes a basket approach, taking positions in 3-4 ideas within select sectors. Barring a handful of large positions in 2-3 top bets, its portfolio is spread fairly thin. While the fund has a healthy long term track record, its return profile has visibly slipped in the last few years. The fund’s risk-return grade has also suffered, ranking below its category average. While its fund manager has proven execution capabilities, the fund needs to regain consistency to remain a good pick in its segment.
