How will UTI Master Value Fund perform in the future?

Needless to say no one can predict the future of markets. We have firm belief in the future prospects of the Indian economy. If the Indian economy grows at 9% then the leading companies tend to de well. When the companies do well their stock prices follows their performance. So if you expect the economy to grow at 8% then you can expect top performing mutual funds to give you returns in excess of 14%.

Mutual fund schemes that have exposure to mid size companies tend to show results when their bet on few companies comes true. We advise you to avoid too much of star gazing and future prediction.  Be reminded that equities are one of the asset classes that have the potential to beat inflation.  Your aim for core portfolio should be to beat inflation.
