What were the announcements specifically that bothered the stock market ? How does it impact Mutual Funds ? I read somewhere that Large Cap Mutual funds will be affected. What is your view and can you recommend a couple of Large Cap funds for the long term?

Ashok Kumar The decisions to increase public float from 25% to 35%, and the 20% Buyback tax were were two announcements in this Budget, that particularly displeased the market. The former announcement can impact large cap companies in the near term, but will increase market depth. Two Large Cap funds worth looking at are Axis Bluechip and HDFC Top 100.

Ashok Kumar Given your life cycle stage, you can consider a mix of a satisfactory Hybrid Equity Fund like Mirae Asset Hybrid Equity and a pure Debt Fund like IDFC Dynamic Bond Fund.

Ashok Kumar Index Funds are growing in popularity and if you have a long term perspective, should serve your purpose. However, do note that it is still widely believed that Fund Managers in developing markets like ours can still outperform the Indices.

Ashok Kumar We would prefer Kotak Standard Multicap over Aditya Birla Equity and L&T India Value over ICICI Prudential Value Discovery. The rest of your holdings seem quite satisfactory.

Ashok Kumar Your fund selection is satisfactory. The selection of two hybrid funds both of which have a good long term track record suggests that whereas you are investing in equity you also seek the cushion of some inbuilt debt in your portfolio without losing the equity tax advantage.

Ashok Kumar As the name suggest, Credit risk Funds carry credit risk and any investor putting their money into such funds should be aware of the same. While I have no recommendations of better or worse AMCs in the debt space, IDFC and Canara Robeco are seen to be holding paper carrying relatively lesser risk.

Ashok Kumar Though Index Funds & ETFs are becoming popular in India like overseas, there is still a belief that a Fund Manager can still outperform in a developing market like ours. HDFC Index Fund Nifty 50 Plan & ICICI Prudential Nifty Next 50 Index Fund merit attention.

Ashok Kumar Both the funds are satisfactory performers in their respective categories and if they match your risk profile and goal, they can be held. Congratulations on your holding time frame as it would provide you adequate time to get the complete benefit of compounding.

Ashok Kumar The treble taxation of dividends and non-withdrawal of Long Term Capital Gains on Equity Investments as well as the far more lucrative Securities Transaction Tax (STT) has been a serious sentiment dampener. There was a justifiable expectation that this anomaly might be addressed, but it too was not.
