Who should invest in Tata Large Cap Fund

If invested for 5 years or more, expected gains could comfortably beat the inflation rate as well as returns of fixed income options. But, investors should need to be prepared for the ups and downs of investment value along the way. This is a fund that invests in big companies rather than investing in smaller companies, as a result, these large-cap funds tend to fall less when stock prices fall. Therefore, they are more suited to conservative equity investors. But, it is advisable not to invest in this fund or any other large-cap fund, if one need to redeem the investment in less than 5 years.
