    HDFC Index Nifty 50 Fund – Growth is an open-ended index mutual fund scheme. Being an index mutual fund, the fund replicates the Nifty 50 Index. It replicates by investing in the stocks of companies that are listed under the Nifty 50 Index.  It buys the same number of stocks and in the same proportion as they exist in the index. Since the funds replicate and track the Nifty 50, it is not biased towards any specific sector or industry that’s different from the chosen index. The index’s composition comprises companies across different sectors, market capitalization, and growth potential. HDFC Index Nifty 50 Fund- Growth has the added advantage of the lowest cost of operations as it is a passively managed fund. This means the fund manager does not actively monitor the fund as it is a passively managed fund.  

    The scheme is suitable for a long-term investment duration of a minimum of 5 years. An investor who is looking for market exposure in the equity asset class at a relatively cheaper cost should invest in the scheme. The fund aims to achieve its objective by investing in stocks of companies comprising the Nifty 50 Index. It achieves a return equivalent to the Nifty 50 index by adopting the strategy of passive investment and fund management.

    The fund provides inflation-beating growth over the long term. HDFC Mutual Fund manages the HDFC Index Nifty 50 Fund- Growth.  The fund manager is Mr. Krishan Daga. HDFC Index Nifty 50 Fund- Growth was previously known as HDFC Index Nifty.

With exposure to equities of top companies, an investor may invest at a relatively lower cost for foreseeable returns. Since the value of the stock index is directly related to the value of the underlying securities, any change in the stock value has a direct and huge impact on the value of the index. HDFC Index Nifty 50 Fund- Growth has a broader equity market exposure and lower expense ratio.

    How Scripbox Algorithmically Selects Mutual Funds?

    Scripbox uses time-tested principles, historical data, and valid assumptions about asset classes. We combine them with a rigorous process to finalize which asset classes make the most sense for specific types of objectives, considering the time needed to achieve them.

    Once we select an asset class, our algorithm goes to work to select the best financial products.

    The algorithm scores financial products on multiple parameters, giving relevant weights to each of the listed parameters, such as:

    • Track record of the product – how long has it been around?
    • Assets under management – how big is it – for example, the size of a mutual fund
    • Liquidity – how easy is it to move in or out of the product?
    • Consistency of performance – how much have the returns fluctuated?
    • The risk associated with the product – what risks impact the product?
    • Quality of underlying assets – we assess how risky the underlying assets are – for example, by considering bond ratings in the case of debt funds

    With such a scientific and detailed approach Scripbox ensures:

    • Bias free product selection – commissions don’t sway our decisions
    • Minimal human intervention and thus minimal impact of emotions and behavioral biases
    • Consideration of the maximum number of factors that can impact an investment product
    • Application of logic to investment product selection 

    Our investment product selection science helps us help you, without biases clouding the evaluation.
