Who Should Invest in Sundaram Services Fund?

  • Thematic funds offer high returns on investment if the specific theme performs well. The services sector is growing rapidly in the country and it is expected to grow further in the future.
  • Investors who have a high risk appetite can consider investing in this fund. However, it is important to have a long-term investment horizon for this investment, ranging from 5-7 years, as the equity securities are quite sensitive to market fluctuations in the short run.
  • If an investor doesn’t have much knowledge about the stock market and cannot anticipate the future market trends, it becomes difficult to pick the right thematic fund. Therefore, for a novice investor, it is better to invest in other mutual funds such as Axis Bluechip Fund or DSP Midcap Fund with less inherent risk rather than opting for a thematic fund.
  • Overall exposure to a thematic fund in your investment portfolio should not be more than 10-13% of your investment, as they carry huge risk. It should be noted that the fund has substantial  allocation to the financial services sector that is not performing well from the past year. This has resulted in lower returns delivered by this fund. This might continue in the future owing to the recent economic slowdown.

Will You Pay Tax?

If you withdraw or redeem the units before one year of investment, Short Term Capital Gains Tax of 15% is levied. Whereas, Long Term Capital Gains Tax above ₹1 lakh will be taxed at 10% after completion of 1 year of investment.

For instance, an investor has made a capital gain of ₹30000 on investment in Sundaram Services Fund, Short Term Capital Gains Tax of 15% would be levied if s/he withdraws the amount within one year of investment. The payable tax would be ₹4500.

Also, if the investor has made a capital gain of ₹2 lakh on investment in this scheme, and withdraws the amount after 1 year of investment, Long Term Capital Gains Tax of 10% would be levied on ₹1 lakh. Residual ₹1Lakh is exempted from taxation. The payable tax would be ₹10,000.
