What is a Value fund?

A value fund is one in which more allocation is made towards stocks that are trading lower to their intrinsic value.

In a value mutual fund, valuation is more important than price.

There is no restriction with any caps so value mutual funds can move anywhere as much as they like.

It invests in companies it feels are presently very attractively prices but with strong fundamentals.

Unlike other equity mutual funds, a value fund does not have a buy and hold strategy but rather a buy and sell strategy.

How does a value fund work?

A value fund is on the lookout for companies:

That are going through a temporary difficult period and thereby trading at prices way below their intrinsic value.

That are going through management changes.

That are emerging and can be seen as challenging the status quo in the near future and trading at attractive valuations.

That are trading at the bottom due to the cyclical nature of their business.

The one common requisite for all companies though is that they need to be fundamentally strong.



Features of Canara Robeco Value Fund  

The fund would follow a value investing strategy.

The fund would invest in all sectors with a bias for undervalued companies.

It will be on the lookout for companies which are trading at a discount to their intrinsic value.

This intrinsic value strategy would mean that the fund would look at the overreaction of companies to short term developments in companies and sectors and try to take advantage of such opportunities.

What is Intrinsic Value investing?

There is a massive difference between value and price.

Prices are determined by market factors.

Value on other hand is the true potential of a company, it can either be undervalued, overvalued or appropriately priced.

Intrinsic means anything that is natural and inherent.

Intrinsic value investing means buying companies at a price lower than their intrinsic value.

It involves keeping a margin of safety and taking advantage of market volatility.


Who can consider Canara Robeco Value fund?

Investors who are seeking value investing and have the patience to sit tight across various market cycles.

Investors looking for a fund with a higher risk adjusted returns.

Investors with a minimum time horizon of 3 years.

Investors looking for under valued businesses and portfolio diversification.


How will Canara Robeco value fund function?

Canara Robeco Value fund will look out for companies that:

Have a strong management in place.

Have already demonstrated strong earnings.

Have potential to continue strong earnings in the future as well.

Have simple businesses that are easy to understand.

Have little to no debt.



          A contra or a value fund should never be your first scheme when you start investing in mutual funds.

Most investors look for value and contra funds more out of fear of missing out on a mutual fund scheme rather than truly being aware of whether these funds are adding anything new to their existing portfolio.

Diversification is more about understanding the functioning and purpose of a scheme rather than the number of schemes you hold.

Do not invest in such schemes only because you can, invest cause you know how they work and whether they would work for your goals.
