Here are 11 aggressive hybrid (balanced) mutual funds that have beat Nifty 100!! The point is to illustrate how easy it is to get such fund shortlists using the freefincal mutual fund consistency screener. The Dec 2018 was published a couple of days ago. As readers may be aware, I have been comparing the performance of aggressive hybrid funds like HDFC Hybrid Equity Fund and ICICI Prudential Equity & Debt Fund with Nifty 100 and it would be instructional to see how the category has fared against the Nifty 100.

Using the screener, we first shortlist the aggressive hybrid category (this can be done at the click of a button if you use the macro screener). There are 25 such funds.

Then you ask: How many funds have a rolling return outperformance score of greater than or equal to 70% with regard to the Nifty 100 Total returns index. This means that suppose we compute the return over 3Y in 700 different periods, the fund (direct plan) should have beat the index at least 490 times or more.

We demand a rolling return outperformance score of >= 70% for every possible 3Y, 4Y and 5Y between now and Jan 1st 2013 (when direct plans were introduced).

Next, we demand a downside protection consistency score of greater than or equal to 90% with regard to the Nifty 100 Total Returns Index. So here we compare the monthly returns of the fund with the index over every possible 3Y, 4Y and 5Y. The fund should have fallen less than the index when the index monthly return was negative with a consistency of 70% or more. See the screener download post for a technical definition.

We demand a downside protection consistency score of >= 70% for every possible 3Y, 4Y and 5Y between now and Jan 1st 2013. So with this, we have the 11 funds.

How to use this list

The idea here is to encourage such an analysis with your funds. I am not suggesting that you exit your current funds and choose these. Please recognise that Nifty 100 is too tough a benchmark for an aggressive hybrid fund normally. The point here is that it is possible to beat it because of the good downside protection the balanced fund have by nature.

Most investor problems can be traced to a lack of informed decision making. We have all made bad decisions and money mistakes when we started earning and spent years undoing these mistakes. Why should our children go through the same pain? What is this book about? As parents, if we had to groom one ability in our children that is key not only to money management and investing but for any aspect of life, what would it be? My answer: Sound Decision Making. So in this book, we meet Chinchu, who is about to turn 10.
