Axis Value Fund Options

Axis Value mutual fund provides investors with the following two options

Growth: This option is most suited for investors who are not seeking dividends or who are not dependent on mutual fund dividends as a source of monthly income and would rather see their capital appreciate.

Income Distribution cum capital withdrawal: This option is most suited for investors who are seeking dividends or who are dependent on mutual fund dividends as a source of monthly income and are not looking for capital appreciation.

In case you do not opt for a particular option between growth and income distribution cum capital withdrawal option then the default option would be growth.

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:

  1. That are going through a temporary difficult period and thereby trading at prices way below their intrinsic value.
  2. That are going through management changes.
  3. That are emerging and can be seen as challenging the status in the near future at trading at attractive valuations.
  4. That are trading at the bottom due to the cyclical nature of their business.
  5. The one common requisite for all companies though is that they need to be fundamentally strong.

            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.
