3.Look beyond past returns to choose the best fund.
The last 4-5 years have been very interesting for the Indian equity markets. They tested the patience of investors and merit of fund managers. The extremes of highs and lows made investors sit up and closely watch the stocks picked by their funds and fund managers. Some schemes beat the benchmark indices in the rising market of 2006-07. They also managed to limit the losses in the 2008 crash. Though long-term annualised return is normally used to gauge a fund's performance, a look at the 'up capture' and 'down capture' ratios would help zero in on the best one. Up/downside capture ratio shows you whether a given fund has outperformed-gained more or lost less-compared with a benchmark during periods of market strength and weakness, and if so, by how much. Broadly there are four different combinations of up/downside capture ratios.
