Should You Invest in Bluechip Mutual Funds?

Its been asked by the number of investors whether it is a good time for investment in Bluechip mutual funds in the present market scenario and for what duration along with what return can they expect from their investment?
Before this, we would like to ask a few questions. Do you have a specific Bluechip scheme name in your mind or are you talking about large-cap mutual fund schemes that use Bluechip in their name? Examples are SBI Bluechip, Axis Bluechip Fund, etc. Please keep this in mind that some large and mid-cap mutual funds schemes also use Bluechip in their name but mostly preceding by emerging. Examples are, Principal Emerging Bluechip Fund, Mirae Asset Emerging Bluechip Fund, among others.
Different types of schemes for instance large-cap and large & mid-cap schemes are set for different sets of investors. Large-cap is recommended for conservative equity investors, as this scheme invests in very large companies with very lesser volatility and highly stable than any other equity scheme. These investments have a horizon of five to seven years.
Large and mid-cap schemes are considered very risky as investors have to mandatory invest 35% of their corpus in mid-cap stocks. This investment is very very risky and highly volatile. It’s because of these features, this scheme is generally recommended to aggressive investors with a longer horizon investment period of seven to 10 years.
Please keep this in mind: Mutual Funds don’t guarantee any returns. One can expect around 10 – 12% returns of its equity investment over a long period. But this is totally based on historic returns with actual returns varying on stock market performance.
