What are SBI Bluehchip Funds
SBI Bluechip Fund is an open-ended long term growth mutual fund scheme with the aim to provide investors with capital growth and wealth generation. SBI Bluechip Fund invests predominantly in diverse large cap equities and equity related instruments, therefore the risk is moderately high. Ms. Sohini Andani is the Fund Manager who has been managing this fund since September 2010.
A growth fund is an equity fund that invests a majority of the fund corpus in a diversified mix of shares and stocks of companies of different capitalization. In an open-ended fund one may purchase or sell equity stocks any time and may invest periodically as in Systematic Investment Plans (SIPs) instead of a lump sum amount. This also leads to rupee cost averaging benefit in the long term. Rupee cost averaging means when you invest a fixed amount at regular intervals then you buy more equity shares when those are low priced and less shares when prices are high, thus averaging out costs of units.
SBI Bluechip Fund invests 80% of the fund amount in blue chip companies, i.e. the well established companies that are financially sound and have brand equities in the market. Good performance and renowned brands ensure safety and reliability as they are possibly the market leaders. The portfolio of SBI Bluechip Fund consists mainly of large cap stocks.

What You Could Lose?
This is for moderate risk tolerance and the fund may not perform up to the benchmark at times. The fund has underperformed in recent times and its competitors in the similar fund category have generated more returns. However, it seeks to outperform through an active management.
Although SBI Bluechip Fund invests a major part of corpus amount in share equity of large cap companies, it has the flexibility to invest 20% of the corpus amount in debt, other money market instruments and companies other than that of large capitalization. Its portfolio comprises investments in Financial sectors, Energy, Consumer Goods, Automobile, etc.
SBI claims that “the fund follows a blend of growth and value style of investing with a combination of top down and bottom-up investment strategy for stock selection across sectors”. It is one of the high rated Mutual Fund by CRISIL (formerly Credit Rating Information Services of India Limited) and one among the top fund schemes by SBI Mutual Funds.
