If there’s one NFO that’s trying to be a hop out of the regular, it is the HDFC Defence Fund. And with good reason – the defence space has been garnering increasing attention in stock markets with defence plays rallying. This open-ended thematic fund opens for subscription today.
HDFC Defence will be the only fund on the defence theme, making it differentiated from other sector offerings. There’s also no denying the scope in the defence sector, especially after key changes in defence capex spending which focuses on indigenous procurement. So, can this NFO make a good portfolio addition?
