Unravelling Sector-Specific Mutual Funds

What are sector-specific funds/schemes?

Sector-Specific Funds are mutual funds that channel their investments into a particular sector or industry, such as Pharmaceuticals, IT, FMCG, or Banking. As outlined in the offer documents, the performance of these funds is closely tied to the corresponding sector's health. While the potential for higher returns exists, the risk is also elevated due to lack of diversification. Investors should closely monitor sectoral trends and be ready to make timely exit decisions.
