Unitholders can, therefore, benefit from information gap. Secondly, stocks of various mid-cap companies may get higher valuations, as a result of increasing profit margins. Thirdly, customers can also gain exposure to niche sectors in the mid-cap space. Customers should analyze several the important parameters of this fund before investing in Canara Robeco India Opportunities Fund.
