The chart below shows the 3 years rolling returns of the fund over the last 5 years.

You can see in the chart above that, the 3 year rolling returns of the fund over the last 5 years have always been above 20%. In other words, in the last 5 years, if you had a 3 year investment horizon, you would have always got more than 20% annualized returns, irrespective of when you invested. The last 5 years were not the most benign period for equity market in India and the world.

In 2011 and 2015 we had sharp downturns. There were a number of adverse global factors in the last 5 year period, like end of quantitative easing by the US Federal Reserve and interest rate hike last year, the Eurozone economic issues related to Greece and a number of other countries, economic slowdown in China and issues with earnings slowdown in our own country.

The performance of SBI Magnum Midcap Fund given these various factors is truly outstanding. In fact, over the last 5 years, SBI Magnum Midcap Fund gave more than 30% rolling returns almost 75% of the times.

Portfolio Construction of SBI Magnum Midcap Fund

The investment objective of SBI Magnum Midcap Fund is to provide investors with opportunities for long term growth in capital along with the liquidity of an open-ended scheme by investing predominantly in a well-diversified basket of equity stocks of Midcap companies. The fund manager likes to invest in growth companies. The Fund Manager has a bias for cyclical sectors like banking and finance, capital goods, cement and construction etc. Cyclical sectors usually outperform defensive sectors in the long term especially when economic growth revives and risk sentiments improve.

However, the fund also has allocations to defensive sectors like pharmaceuticals and information technology. The portfolio is very well diversified in terms of company concentration. The top 5 companies in the fund portfolio, Cholamandalam Investment and Finance, RAMCO Cements, Strides Shasun, Dr Lal Pathlabs and VA Tech Wabag account for only 20% of the portfolio value.
