Two AMCs, Axis Mutual Fund and Mirae Asset Mutual Fund, generated fabulous returns in various time-horizons in the last five years even as most fund houses struggled to stay afloat. Equity schemes of both the fund houses have been doing very well in one-, three-, and five-year horizons.

Don’t you want to know where these fund houses have invested in the current market. Or how they have changed their portfolio in the last one month. Perhaps reading about their entry and exit in stocks, or increase and decrease in their allocations might give you some investment ideas as well.

Axis Mutual fund has majorly invested in the financial space, including private banks and a few select NBFCs.

The top performing fund house’s top holdings include HDFC Bank, where it increased number of shares held by 4.69%. The AMCs total investment in HDFC Bank stood at Rs 4,366 crore as on 31st October.
