Quarterly review – changes in Prime Funds, our mutual fund recommendations

We are living in strange times. No, I am not talking of Covid-19. Your one-year returns of equity funds (across categories), at an average 31% between January to March 22, 2021, zoomed to an average 69% since March 23, 2021. In other words, 1-year returns suddenly doubled from March 23, 2021. If you recall, March 23 2020 was a market low. So, 1-year returns from March 23, 2021, have started looking abnormally high.

In the stock market, even as the year closed out with gains, it is better classified as an abnormal year driven by liquidity. Such markets can be deceptive. It is best not to draw long-term lessons from this year! In the debt market, we saw policy rates crash below earlier floors. Returns soared for some categories, other funds fell to credit risks.

Prime Recommendation: Union Small Cap – A small-cap fund without size constraint

After almost 2 years of underperformance, the small-cap segment is seeing a new set of companies rallying swiftly, to make up for the years of suppressed performance.
