Did well in the falling markets of 2008 and one of the best performers in 2009 market run-up, sound fund management and low downside risk. HDFC Equity 299.11 12.08 25.58 31.9 4 1.79 8206.39 One of India's oldest value-oriented funds. Follows a valueoriented approach of investing and done well in falling markets.
