These companies are relatively less sensitive to market fluctuations and thus equity investment in such companies is less risky as compared to that of mid-cap and small-cap companies.

HDFC Top 100 Fund also offers the facility of investment through Systematic Investment Plan (SIP) where an investor invests a small amount of money in the mutual fund on a regular basis. This ensures that people who don’t have enough money for a lump-sum investment can also earn returns through mutual funds. The minimum amount required for the SIP Investment is ₹500.
