PPFAS Long Term Value – New mutual fund , but can I invest ?

POSTED BY Rokhan ON February 1, 2014 9:08 am COMMENTS (5)

This is a new AMC and a new fund with only about 6 months in operation. Now I understand that normally new AMCs or funds are not recommended for investments, but I like this company’s philosophy and their performance in last 6 months is also good.

But I see the negatives as well – the fund managers do not have much experience, so I am conflicted.

What are your opinions on this fund? Any similar fund that I can invest in, instead?

    Hi Srikanth

    Thanks for your inputs .. I am just starting to invest actually. Waiting for my banks documents /accounts to be ready after which I’ll start doing SIP through FundsIndia. Am planning a 20% allocation in this AMC, and remaining 80% through 4 other AMCs yet to be decided.

    Once I decide, I’ll come to you as well for recommendation/feedback on the portfolio.


  2. Rokhan,

    I’ve started recommending this fund to select clients. I am with you – I like the AMC and their principles, but I’m as yet reluctant to make this a regular recommendation for my clients. However, for investors who have a decent portfolio and are looking for diversification, I recommend this as I believe this fund marks a departure both in terms of management philosophy as well as portfolio design.

    Hope this helps,

    Hi Ashal

    Thanks. I just googled it and found that Manish had done an interview cum review of this fund as well here – https://www.jagoinvestor.com/2013/04/ppfas-enters-mutual-fund-business.html

    That gives me more confidence in this AMC. I am researching more and will come back with questions – esp on negative reviews (whether they hold water).

    Appreciate your help always!!
