Expert view of the fund

Franklin India Multi-Asset Solution Fund aims to be a strategic and tactical player in the mutual funds scene, offering the promise of high returns at an equally high risk quotient. The fund is still in its infancy, having been around for less than a year and hasn't truly ruffled any feathers yet. A change in strategy was perhaps visible when Mr. Radhakrishnan was appointed the new fund manager. The fund invests in other funds which makes its performance linked to how well they perform, a high risk strategy indeed. One could adopt a wait and watch policy before jumping into this fund, to see if it actually lives up to its promise.
