The fund’s allocation from 80% up to 100% in equities of large-cap companies bears testimony to the focus on high returns regardless of market volatility. In their pursuit to diversify the portfolio to balance asset allocation, the fund also invests in equities and related securities in other companies up to 20%. Besides, similar allocation is explored in cash and money market instruments and units issued by REITs and InvITs with a risk profile ranging from the low to medium.

It is understood that the Axis Bluechip Fund Growth aims at maximum capital appreciation through investments in large-cap companies with proven track record consistent revenue growth and relatively new companies with matching potential. On the flip side, these investments carry very high risks because they are governed by market volatility.  

The portfolio holding pattern as of 31 March 2021 in the percentage of net assets reveals that script of Infosys (9.51), HDFC Bank (9.30), Bajaj Finance Ltd (8.69), Tata Consultancy Services (7.40), Kotak Mahindra Bank (7.14), ICICI Bank (6.28), Avenue Supermarts Ltd (5.60), to name a few, are among the significant portfolio components. Commensurate with the top holdings, the sector-wise allocation is equally revealing. A significant percentage of assets is allocated in Financial Services (40.05), IT (18.16), Consumer Goods (8.85), Pharmaceuticals (5.89), Consumer Services (5.60), and Others (5.57), to name the most dominant.  

The Axis Bluechip Fund-Growth offers the following plans:

  • Axis Bluechip Fund-Growth Regular.
  • Axis Bluechip Fund-Growth Direct.

There are practically no differences in the two plans, except that the Regular Plan is subscribed at the broker or distributor and the Direct Plan at the Fund House directly without the assistance of any intermediary. However, the financial impact is felt due to the higher Expense Ratio in the Regular Plan due to the outgo on commissions paid to the intermediaries.

The fund makes every endeavour to realize the objectives, but success is not assured in the face of market volatility. Hence, the Fund House does not guarantee any sustained returns to the investors.
