Methodology of ranking

Value research rating

Value Research Fund Ratings are a composite measure of historical risk-adjusted returns. In the case of equity and hybrid funds this rating is based on the weighted average monthly returns for the last 3 and 5-year periods. In the case of debt funds this rating is based on the weighted average weekly returns for the last 18 months and 3-year periods and in case of short-term debt funds - weekly returns for the last 18 months. These ratings do not take into consideration any entry or exit load. Each category must have a minimum of 10 funds for it to be rated. Effective, July 2008, we have put an additional qualifying criteria, whereby a fund with less than Rs 5 crore of average AUM in the past six months will not be eligible for rating.

Five-stars indicate that a fund is in the top 10% of its category in terms of historical risk-adjusted returns. Four stars indicate that a fund is in the next 22.5%, middle 35% receive three stars, the next 22.5% are assigned two stars while the bottom 10% receive one star. The number of schemes in each category is mentioned alongside the categories name. Equity: Large Cap (47), Equity: Large & Mid Cap (54), Equity: Multi Cap (39), Equity: Mid & Small Cap (51) Equity: Tax Planning (28), Equity: Infrastructure (19), Equity: Banking (10), Hybrid: Equity-oriented (25), Hybrid: Debt-oriented Aggressive (13), Hybrid: Debt-oriented Conservative (41), Hybrid: Arbitrage (15) Debt: income (62), Debt: Gilt Medium & Long Term (32), Debt: Short Term (19), Debt: Ultra Short Term (139), Debt: Liquid (101). These Fund Ratings are as on October 31, 2011.
