Under normal market conditions, the Scheme would invest predominantly in a diversified portfolio constituting equity and equity related instruments of companies that the Fund Manager believes have sustainable business models, and potential for capital appreciation.
The corpus of the Scheme will be invested predominantly in blue chip – large cap stocks and / or in exchange traded derivatives on the S&P CNX Nifty Index or such blue chip stocks. 0-20% of the net assets will be invested in securities other than blue chip large caps. A very small portion of the fund will be kept liquid. The Scheme may also use various derivatives and hedging products from time to time, as would be available and permitted by SEBI, in an attempt to protect the value of the portfolio and enhance Unitholders’ interest. Large Cap companies shall consist of investment universe which are within 1st-100th company in terms of full market capitalization. The fund shall adopt the list of stocks prepared by AMFI based on SEBI defined parameters. AMFI is mandated to update such list once in 6 months. The fund shall rebalance the portfolio (if required) in line with updated list, within a period of one month.
The investment environment, valuation parameters and other investment criteria will determine the allocation and the investment style. The Fund Manager would follow a top down approach to shortlist stocks for portfolio construction. Under the top down process the Fund Manager would look at the global and Indian economy and the domestic policy environment and stock valuations. This would result in identification of themes which have a potential to outperform. The final stock selection process would be a bottoms-up process wherein stocks from the short listed themes would be picked up based on valuations.
Under normal market conditions and depending on the Fund Manager’s views, the assets of the Scheme would be invested across stocks that represent a broad range of sectors of the economy in order to ensure adequate portfolio diversification.
