Birla Sun Life Tax Relief 96

Birla Sun Life Tax Relief 96 scheme seeks long-term capital growth and will invest approximately 80 per cent of its assets in equity, while the balance would be a invested in debt and money market instrument. It was converted to an open-ended scheme with effect from July 1999. A combination of top down & bottom up approach will be followed in the stock selection process.

Birla Sun Life Tax Relief 96 fund had a great run in the initial years after launch, slipped behind its category, sporting a moderate three-star rating for many years, and has shown promise again since 2012. The Fund has climbed from a three-star to a four-star rating in this period. It follows a multi-cap strategy, with 55-60 per cent large-cap exposure and the rest in small and mid caps. The strategy is bottom-up and uses a 360-degree view of a company in order to invest in compelling businesses without any size bias. The investment philosophy of the fund is to invest in quality companies. This involves selecting companies run by professional managements and which have predictability of earnings and strong moats. The portfolio reveals quite a few unconventional mid-cap picks as top holdings. The fund's quality bias has also led to a number of MNC stocks figuring among stock choices.

Birla Sun Life Tax Relief 96 fund's year-by-year record since 1998 shows a few bad patches. The fund has struggled in bear markets both in 2008 and 2011, but it has also delivered sharply higher returns than the category in the big bull years of 2007, 2009, 2012 and 2014. The fund suffered fund-manager shuffle in its initial years until 2006. The management team has remained very stable, with Ajay Garg at the helm from 2006.

Overall, it's a Birla Sun Life Tax Relief 96 fund that sticks to quality mid caps for the long haul.
