Fund Analysis
The fund unlike its peers invests largely in midcaps (around 75-80%) with the rest in large caps. R. Janikaraman has been managing the fund since 2011 who very well knows about the volatility the portfolio might face when it covers the midcap section. Franklin as an AMC has been known to have an investment mandate which takes into account the risk while generating returns and its performance reflects it. This might not have helped it to beat its peers in 2008 but was successful in doing so in 2011where it beat the benchmark and was in line with its peers.
