FundsIndia Reviews: HDFC Capital Builder

The HDFC stable has a handful of funds with a track record of over 20 years. But perhaps the least spoken of them all, despite a steady performance record, would be HDFC Capital Builder.

The BJP’s win in the UP elections provided a leg up to the market for couple of reasons: one, it reposed the faith in the policy reforms of the government and brushed aside concerns of demonetisation even if it lasts for some time. Two, while too early, it sets the stage for the 2019 elections […]
