Before investing in a mutual fund scheme, investors often examine the past returns of that scheme and compare them with the similar schemes that fall under the same category.

Although past returns do not guarantee the future returns, investors invariably give a lot of emphasis to them.


Here, we list out the top-performing mutual funds in the category of fund of funds (FOFs) investing in overseas schemes.

At the outset, let us first understand what are FOFs investing in overseas funds.

Mutual Funds

As per Sebi’s categorisation of mutual funds, fund of funds are mutual fund schemes that invest in the units of other schemes of the same mutual fund or other mutual funds. They are mandated to invest a minimum of 95 percent of investment in the underlying fund.

Notably, fund of funds which invest in exchange traded funds (ETFs) listed on foreign exchanges were asked to discontinue accepting fresh inflows from 1 April onwards.

This is because 95 percent of the $1 billion limit set by the banking regulator for overseas ETFs was hit, shows the AMFI data. The capital markets regulator Sebi has communicated the rule for ETF feeder funds to Amfi, which has informed the mutual fund houses. However, some international funds are still open for investment, and one can get the list here
