During the last three months, there was a significant fall in GEPIL's volatility from 25 Oct, 2018 to 22 Jan, 2019. While there was a significant fall in the NIFTY-50 index's volatility from 31 Oct, 2018 to 5 Dec, 2018.

Advanced/professional short-term investors should note that GEPIL has significant negative skewness in it's return distribution. This indicates that GEPIL is very risky for short-term investment and can significantly underperform for long durations.

GEPIL has more chance of extreme outcomes than the NIFTY-50 index. Therefore, GEPIL must receive a lower allocation than NIFTY-50 in your portfolio. NIFTY-50 index usually has shorter drawdown period than GEPIL.

On a general note (since you are interested in GEPIL), if you are evaluating GEPIL as an investment candidate, then you should read about ERIS which has delivered similar performance and can help diversify your portfolio.
