What are large-cap stocks?

Large-cap stocks are stocks of those companies whose market capitalisation is generally more than Rs 20,000 crores.

In terms of listed companies, the Securities and Exchanges Board of India (SEBI) has defined them as the 

  • 1st to 100th listed company in terms of market capitalisation


The fund is benchmarked to the Nifty 100 TRI Index. 

Nifty 100 is a stock market index that represents the top 100 companies from Nifty 500. This is based on the full market capitalisation of the companies. It attempts to cover all major sectors of the economy. Since it covers the top 100 companies, the index mostly covers the large-cap companies of the market.

TRI or total return index of any stock market index records the price movements and dividend payouts of the stocks listed in the index. All mutual funds are mandated by the SEBI to use TRI as a benchmark.

Fund Details

Sundaram Bluechip Fund will have a regular and direct plan. Under both plans, the fund will provide growth and dividend (payout, re-investment and sweep) options. In case the investor does not indicate any option, growth will be chosen as the default option.
