Principal Asset Management has launched the Principal Large Cap Fund. The NFO is open for subscription from 28th September to 12th October. According to the SID, the fund will allocate 80-85% of its corpus to the top 100 Indian large cap stocks and actively invest up to 15% in US stocks with a market cap higher than USD 50 Billion. The large cap fund will aim to provide growth from Indian and US economies and depreciating currencies.

The fund will be benchmarked against the composite index of Nifty 100 Total Return Index (NIFTY100 TRI). Principal Large Cap Fund offers two unique facilities like – SMART & My Gain. SMART aims
to protect investors against a sharp fall in markets as it invests in a staggered manner to
  • %Annualized Return for
  • Suggested Investment Horizon
  • N.ATime taken to double money
mitigate risks from timing the market. My Gain facility allows investors to set a target rate of

return and automatically shifts the appreciated amount to any Principal fund of their choice,
when the target rate is achieved.

“Large cap funds have comparatively delivered better returns with lesser volatility over the long term. Our research indicates that a composite Index of 15% of the S&P 500 (INR) Index and 85% of the NIFTY100 Index outperforms the Indian indexes in multiple trailing periods and has lower volatility. The allocation to US large Cap companies would comprise up to 15 stocks around 4 to 6 sectors and include stable and high growth businesses with a global brand franchise,’’ added Rajat Jain, Chief Investment Officer, Principal Asset Management.

“Principal Large Cap Fund is the first large cap fund in India that will enable investors to widen their investment horizon and tap into the investment opportunities provided by large cap Indian and US companies, especially those who are expected to emerge stronger from the changing economic landscape and have a higher growth and comparatively lower risk quotient. A globally diversified portfolio will help investors to take advantage of market cycles in two different economies and partake in the returns of the companies in the US, while also trying to mitigate the country risk,” Bharat Ravuri, Managing Director, Principal Asset Management.
