Whether they acknowledge it or not, most mutual fund investors choose schemes primarily on the basis of their past performance. It is a different matter that investment experts point out that the past returns are not a guarantee of the scheme's future performance.

Here, we list out the top-performing flexi cap mutual funds which have delivered more than 20 per cent CAGR (compound annual growth rate) returns in the past five years.

At the outset, let us first understand what flexi cap mutual funds are.

Flexi cap mutual funds

Flexi cap mutual funds are the ones which offer the flexibility of investing across market capitalisation i.e., large cap, mid cap and small cap. The only threshold they have to stick to is a minimum of 65 percent of assets in the equity & equity-related instruments.

There are 38 schemes in this category with total assets under management (AUM) amounting to 3.34 lakh crore, shows the AMFI data as on Jan 31, 2024.

Among all equity-oriented schemes, this is the highest asset size followed by large-cap mutual funds, which have total assets worth 2.99 lakh crore.

These are the top performing flexi cap mutual funds:

Flexi cap funds                                 5-year-returns (%)  1 lakh grows to 
Quant Flexi Cap Fund31.34    3.90 lakh
JM Flexicap Fund23.92    2.92 lakh
Parag Parikh Flexi Cap Fund  23.92    2.87 lakh
Franklin India Flexi Cap Fund20.00                            2.48 lakh
HDFC Flexi Cap Fund21.11    2.60  lakh

(Source: AMFI, returns as on Feb 21, 2024)

As we can see in the table above, the returns given by top-performing flexi cap mutual funds are in the range of 21 to 31 percent per annum. The highest annualised return of 31.34 percent was given by Quant Flexi Cap Fund, whereas the lowest return of 21.11 per cent (among the top-performing schemes) was given by HDFC Flexi Cap Fund.

This means if someone had invested one lakh in Quant Flexi Cap fund five years ago, it would have grown to 3.90 lakh and the same investment in HDFC Flexi Cap Fund would have grown to 2.60 lakh.

However, investors are advised to exercise caution and view the scheme holistically and examine its worth from multiple criteria such as category it belongs to, macroeconomic factors, reputation of fund house, overall market sentiment and risk appetite of investors, among other factors.
