Fund in Brief

The Edelweiss Maiden Opportunities Fund was started on 22nd February 2018. On 29th June 2021, it was changed to Edelweiss Recently Listed IPO Fund. This fund has performed efficiently for more than three years.

This fund offers two types of plans:

  • Edelweiss Maiden Opportunities Fund Regular-Growth
  • Edelweiss Maiden Opportunities Fund Direct-Growth

The two plans do not have any major difference, except you have to pay a commission to your mutual fund broker or distributor in the regular plan. This commission increases the expense ratio, which may cause a difference in the returns between the two plans.

The expense ratio for the regular plan is 2.43% and the direct plan is 1.23%.
