Navi Nifty IT Index Fund Review

Navi Nifty IT Index Fund replicates the Nifty IT Index performance. This fund primarily invests in the same stocks and proportions as the Nifty IT Index. Hence, it aims to closely track the benchmark’s return with minimum tracking error. Since the fund invests in technology stocks, it is a high-risk investment option. Investors should have a long term investment approach to avoid short term market volatility. 

Investors who understand and can closely monitor the performance of the market IT stocks can consider investing in this scheme. Also, they should have an understanding of the risk towards this sector-specific fund. Furthermore, experts advise monitoring the investment in this fund as it does not guarantee returns. This helps investors to see their progress towards their financial goals.
