Review: Tata Growing Economy Infrastructure Fund NFO

Tata has come out with its so called Tata Growing Economy Infrastructure Fund. The fund is in the NFO period and it closes on 18th March 2008.
The Tata Growing Economy Infrastructure Fund, is said to invest in the so called Growing economies or emerging markets, a concept that I could never understand. India has been growing since independence, so are Brazil, Russia, China, Thailand, South Africa, blah, blah, blah, blah.

They are expected to invest in these so called growing economies and the infrastructure companies of these growing economies. They have namely 2 plans and styles in which your money will be betted upon, details of these 2 plans, A & B are included below.

So if an investor believes that the Tata Fund Money managers will be able to pick out the best performing stocks of the future in the infrastructure sector that too at a world level, then go for this fund NFO.

However, with so many infrastructure funds in offering currently, and so many in the pipeline, I could not understand how can TATA fund management have a heavy entry load of 3% that too on a minimum investment amount of 10,000. The usual conventional NFO’s will have 2.25% as entry load and a minimum investment amount of 5,000 only. Probably, the Tata Fund management believes firmly about their stock picking skills and they are much more confident about the response by investors to their fund.

Here are the fund details:
