Prior to investing in a mutual fund scheme, investors often examine the returns given by a scheme within a given time frame and compare the same with the corresponding schemes in the same category launched by other fund houses. 

Typically, the schemes offering highest returns tend to draw a large number of investors, thus mounting the pressure on fund managers to continue to deliver high performance. Sometimes, the pace continues, whereas in some cases, it does not. 

So, one should not assume that the historical returns of a mutual fund scheme will continue in the future as well.

As we see in the table, there are eight large cap schemes which have delivered over 40 percent return in the past one year.

The top-performing schemes include Quant Large Cap Fund (56 percent), Bank of India Bluechip Fund (49 per cent), JM Large Cap Fund (47 per cent) and Nippon India Large Cap Fund (46 per cent), among others.

However, it is important to note that the past returns do not guarantee a scheme’s future returns. So, one must keep in mind an array of factors before deciding to invest in a scheme. 

These include the category of scheme, reputation of the fund house, overall macroeconomic situation and importantly — investor's risk appetite, among others.
