Mirae Asset Emerging Bluechip Fund: Performance Review

Published: December 12, 2023 at 6:00 am

This edition of the fund performance report looks at Mirae Asset Emerging Bluechip Fund. In Oct 2016, this fund stopped lump sum investments after its AUM swelled past 11,000 Crores. Investments were possible only via SIPs or STPs up to Rs. 2500 monthly.  In early October 2023, the fund house increased the SIP limit to Rs. 25,000.

It started out as a mid cap fund but had to increase large cap stock allocation due to an AUM increase. After the SEB MF categorization rules kicked in, it became a large and mid cap fund. It has always been a mystery to me (and possibly others) why this fund has investment restrictions and not other funds in its category.

We use our monthly equity mutual fund performance screener to review the performance of Mirae Asset Emerging Bluechip Fund over every possible 3,4, and 5-year period since Jan 2013 (more data available in the screener sheet).

Disclaimer: Fund performance reports present return and risk analysis of a fund with representative benchmarks and not investment recommendations. It must be expressly understood that the data below reflect only past performance and is in no way an indication of future performance. Our investment recommendations are: Handpicked List of Mutual Funds (PlumbLine).

In this report, we shall abstain from any buy/sell recommendations. It is up to the reader to decide. Both the existing investor in the evaluated fund and the prospective investor (especially the prospective investor) must understand the past performance disclaimer mentioned above and should not expect the fund’s past performance (whether good or bad) to repeat in future. As always, an index fund is a simpler, peaceful option.

Notice the increase in large cap allocation in early 2018. When we evaluate past returns, this must be kept in mind.

We find out how consistently the Mirae Asset Emerging Bluechip Fund has performed compared to the Nifty 200 index and Nify Largemidcap 250 TRI.

1 Rolling return outperformance consistency: the fund returns are compared with category benchmark returns over every possible  3Y,4Y, and 5Y period from 1st Jan 2013. The higher the outperformance consistency, the better. Suppose 876 fund returns were compared with 876 benchmark returns, and the fund has beaten the benchmark 675 times. The consistency score will be 675/876 ~ 0.77 or 77%. A score of 1 means 100%.

No of rolling return entries Fund (5 years)14361436
No of times the fund has outperformed the index (5 years)14361436
rolling return outperformance Consistency Score (5 years)11

That is excellent performance consistency.

2 Upside performance consistency over every possible 1Y,2Y,3Y,4Y, 5Y: Higher the better. A score of 70% means, 7 out of 10 times, the Fund performed better than the category benchmark when the benchmark increased. This is a measure of reward. It is computed from rolling upside capture data (see link below).

BenchmarkN200TRINifty Largemidcap 250 TRI
upside performance consistency (3 years)0.9157890.842105
upside performance consistency (4 years)10.915663
upside performance consistency (5 years)11

Most funds that beat the index consistently do not have consistent upside. See: Strange, but true! How mutual funds beat the index! Mirae Asset Emerging Bluechip Fund is an exception.

3 Downside performance consistency over every possible 1Y, 2Y, 3Y,4Y, and 5Y. The higher, the better. A score of 60% means 6 out of 10 times, the Fund performed better than the category benchmark when the benchmark was moving downThis is a measure of risk protection. It is computed from rolling downside capture data. Read more: An introduction to Downside and Upside Capture Ratios.

downside protection consistency (5 years)11

Mirae Asset Emerging Bluechip is a rare fund that excels in all three metrics.  However, no one can predict when the tide may turn. Existing and prospective investors must remember this before increasing their SIP amounts or starting new SIPs.

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, what would it be if we had to groom one ability in our children that is key not only to money management and investing but to any aspect of life? My answer: Sound Decision Making. So in this book, we meet Chinchu, who is about to turn 10. What he wants for his birthday and how his parents plan for it and teach him several key ideas of decision-making and money management is the narrative. What readers say!
