Mirae Asset Emerging Bluechip Fund: Rising To Its Glory
Nov 11, 2019

While large caps continue to be safe haven for investors and are hitting new highs, mid caps are yet to show any significant growth after the big correction from their peak seen at the beginning of last year. One must remember that mid caps have the potential to be the large caps of tomorrow and can reward investors with high growth. A simple diversification across large caps and midcaps can thus offer the benefit of safety as well as high growth.

Mirae Asset Emerging Bluechip Fund (MAEBF) is one such large & mid cap fund that seeks to discover future growth potential of emerging mid-sized companies that are capable of becoming the bluechips of tomorrow.

MAEBF is currently the largest fund in its category, with a corpus of Rs 8,219 crore under management. It is managed by Mr Neelesh Surana since inception while Mr Ankit Jain joined in January 2019.

Graph 1: Growth of Rs 10,000 if invested in Mirae Asset Emerging Bluechip Fund 5 years ago

Belonging to a process driven fund house, MAEBF showcased exemplary performance in the last five years. An investment of Rs 10,000 in MAEBF five years back on November 04, 2014, would now be worth Rs 22,549 (as calculated on November 04, 2019). This translates into compounded annualised growth rate of 17.66%. In comparison, a simultaneous investment of Rs 10,000 in its benchmark Nifty LargeMidcap 250 - TRI would now be worth Rs 16,204 (a CAGR of 10.14%). As can be seen in the chart alongside, the fund has generated remarkable lead over the index in the last five years.

Graph 2: Mirae Asset Emerging Bluechip Fund year-on-year performance

Launched in July 2010, MAEBF has track record of over nine years to its credit. The year-on-year performance comparison of MAEBF vis-a-vis its benchmark Nifty LargeMidcap 250 - TRI shows that the fund outpaced the index in all last nine calendar years, excluding CY 2018 where it trailed slightly with performance nearly in line with the benchmark. The outperformance has been with a significant margin in all the calendar years. The fund continues to deliver superior returns over benchmark in the current year as well.

During the 5-year rolling period the fund outmarched the benchmark and the category average by around 9 percentage points.

In fact, MAEBF was the category topper across rolling period. LIC MF Large & Midcap Fund, Invesco India Growth Opportunities Fund, Sundaram Large and Mid Cap Fund and Canara Robeco Emerging Equities Fund were the other top performers in the category.

On risk-return parameters, the fund registered slightly higher volatility. However, it managed to deliver decent risk-adjusted returns.

Categorised as Large & Mid cap fund, MAEBF is mandated to invest at least 35% each in equities of large cap and mid cap companies across sector, theme or investment style.

At the same time, its allocation to small caps is down from around 14% a year ago to around 8% presently. Its allocation to mid caps is consistent at around 35%.

HDFC Bank has the highest allocation in the portfolio at 7.1%. This is followed by ICICI Bank (6.2%), State Bank of India (4%), Axis Bank (3.7%) and Reliance Industries (3.6%).

Among the domestic equities in the portfolio, ICICI Bank contributed the most to the fund's return in the last one year with a weighted return of 2%. Kotak Mahindra Bank, Vinati Organics, HDFC Bank and Info Edge (India) were the other top contributors to the portfolio gains.

On the other hand stocks Tata Steel, TVS Motor Company, Larsen & Toubro Infotech, Tata Chemicals and CEAT eroded some of its gains in the last one year.

Suitability of Mirae Asset Emerging Bluechip Fund

MAEBF has rewarded investors with superior returns over different time frames. It holds majority of its portfolio in equities of large and mid cap companies diversified across stocks and sectors. While large cap enable an element of stability with steady rise of income , mid caps have the potential to generate higher returns but the risk involved is higher. MAEBF also seeks opportunities in the very high-risk high-return small caps. The funds exposure across market caps makes it suitable for investors with high risk appetite and longer investment horizon.
