Investors are putting most of their money on Midcap Category. Jan 2020 alone this category has seen net inflows of 1800 Crore. ( Dec 2019 net flow was only  800 Crores )

While the fact is the mid cap valuations are very reasonable and in the last 6 months this category has produced most of the returns simple way to choose the best performing funds is to evaluate the funds on the following criteria

Past Performance of the Fund

Upside and Downside Capture

Underlying Asset performance & Assets Under Management

Equity funds do not give uniform returns, the returns are always go up and down depends on the market, economic conditions and stock selections

So when the markets are doing well, the best performing funds has to capture and deliver the highest returns than the standard benchmark and on the other hand when the markets are tanking, the same fund should protect the investor’s returns from the drag down.
These are the Top 4 Funds which has consistent past performance with upside return capture and downside protection too and also have a good size of Asset under Management too.

 Axis Midcap Fund

Despite different investing approaches and fee collected, the performances are not that different. Never choose a PMS over MF unless you have very high exposures on MF. An investor has to have sufficient exposure on MF. Opt for PMS only if you have a large portfolio in MF.  Also the PMS needs higher risk appetite and exposure. Client needs to understand the lock in period and exit loads before he signs up the PMS. Having the combination of both MF and PMS are advisable.
