Returns to investors may be lower to the extent of entry load and timing of investment in the fund. Past performance may or may not be sustained in future and the numbers should not be used as a basis for comparison with other investments.Quartile Disclaimer: The ranks derived on the basis of the methodology described in the Ranking Disclaimer has been used as the basis for categorising funds into first quartile (top 25% of funds by rank), second quartile (the second 25% by rank), third quartile (the third 25% by rank) and fourth quartile (the fourth 25% by rank). For example, if there are 100 funds, funds ranked between 1-25 will be quartile I, 26-50 Quartile 2, 51-75 Quartile 3 and 76-100 Quartile 4. The research on historical performance on which the quartiles and ranking are based has been sourced from Value Research, NAV India (an independent third party vendor of fund intelligence in India) and Bloomberg. The performance for ranking purposes has been reckoned as on December 31, 2007. The ranking of every fund in the primary category as of the two dates is available in an excel sheet at www.sundarambnpparibas.in. The analysis of the information has been carried in good faith in-house by Sundaram BNP Paribas Asset Management. The comparison does not take account into scheme-specific features such as specific asset allocation pattern, specific cap-curve or thematic orientation, entry/exit loads, expenses and fees and respective benchmarks for each fund considered for analysis. Attributes such as style and portfolio composition may also differ though the funds invest predominantly in equity and this latter aspect provides a common thread for creating a sub-category of comparable funds. Past performance may or may not be sustained in future. Past performance does not guarantee future result. Peer set excel comparison for each sub-category is also available at www.sundarambnpparibas.in
