SBI Contra Fund has significantly outperformed its first-tier benchmark — S&P BSE 500 TRI — in the short, medium, and long term.
The fund has delivered the highest returns in the category in the 1-year time period(11.55 per cent), 3-year (21.34 per cent), 5-year (12.90 per cent) and since inception in 2005 (18.41 per cent), the statement noted.
The scheme has witnessed strong interest from all segments of investors — retail and High Networth Individuals (HNIs) and is suitable for investors who have advanced knowledge of macro trends and prefer to take selective bets for higher returns.
The scheme follows a combination of top-down and bottom-up approach to build the portfolio. From a top-down perspective, it looks for themes or sectors that the market has completely written off and from a bottom-up perspective, it looks for good quality companies going through a rough phase.
