Understanding Nippon India Banking Fund

-An open-ended equity scheme investing in Banking sector

We are sure you have heard about Sector funds. These are the ones which are focussed on a certain type of sector, endeavouring to leverage the growth in it.  Banking particularly is one such ever-green sector. In this ever-dynamic world, there will always be a need for banks, credit and the related services.

Why Banking sector? Well, it goes without saying that banking is the backbone of any country. It acts as the catalyst for economic recovery and also works in tandem with the macroeconomic factors such as inflation, account deficits etc. With a lot of initiatives like faster clearances of projects or long-term repayment cycle for large projects, it is expected that asset qualities will improve. This will in turn affect the sector positively. Also, the sector is expected to benefit significantly from the domestic recovery over the medium to long-term.

Let us look at Nippon India Mutual Fund’s banking sector fund in detail.

What is Nippon India Banking Fund?

This fund primarily invests in equity and equity related securities of companies in the Banking sector and the ones engaged in allied activities related to the Banking Sector. The aim is long term wealth creation and at the same time to generate relatively better risk-adjusted returns.
