Scheme Rating

IME Scheme Rating

The Scheme does not meet our selection criteria at this time

Not a recommended fund: This is not a recommended fund, primarily because the AMC does not meet our selection criteria. We believe that there are better fund houses to invest in, within the Indian mutual fund universe.

IME Strategy Rating

Strategy Overview: The strategy aims to generate long-term capital appreciation, by investing in a portfolio comprising predominantly Nifty Midcap 100 companies.

PMS Scheme Ratings are driven by IME’s Proprietary Scheme Rating Methodology, which takes into account our ratings of the Scheme’s investment strategy, its maturity, the investment team, and our separate rating on the AMC that runs this particular scheme. Our views on each of these individual criteria are available via the IME RMS – which you can view by reaching out to one of our relationship managers (using either the live chat or book appointment feature on this site).
