sectoral/thematic

An equity scheme that invests in shares of companies operating in a specific sector or industry is called a Sector Fund. Simply, sector-specific mutual funds such as banking funds, real-estate funds, etc. are called Sector Funds.

The Sector Funds are more volatile and riskier than the other market funds as their portfolio contains all the investments in a particular type of industry sector, leading to less diversification. Their performance is entirely based on the particular sector’s performance. The principal objective of Sector Funds is to give the investors an opportunity to earn superior returns from a particular industry sector, if they expect some positive benefits for the sector due to various external factors, for example, higher government spending on road construction could benefit the infrastructure sector. 

Suitability:

Investors who are looking to invest their money in a specific sector and are comfortable with high market volatility.

Taxability:

Sectoral Funds receive the same tax treatment as other equity funds.

• Short term capital gain (less than one year): 15% of gain
Long term capital gain (more than one year): 10% of gain in excess of Rs one lakh per year

Minimum Investment:

The minimum investment varies from scheme to scheme. It could range between Rs. 100 to Rs.5,000.
