Highlights of the Canara Robeco Emerging Equities Fund

This fund invests in the equities of both large and mid-cap funds, thereby providing investors with a diverse portfolio. Historically, mid-caps perform better than large-caps, when the economy is picking up. Thereby this fund has high potentials for generating huge returns to investors.

In the economy, every trough (fall) is followed by an expansion phase. Staying invested in midcaps, even when the market is down is highly advantageous. This helps investors reap the benefits of an economic boom.

Investors have to remember that though mid-caps and large-caps are risky and the associated risks are high; these funds have the potential to generate higher returns, thereby providing capital appreciation to unitholders in the long run.
