The Fund seeks to generate long-term capital appreciation by investing in a diversified portfolio of equity & equity-related instruments across large cap, mid cap and small cap stocks. However, there is no assurance that the investment objective of the Scheme will be realized and the Scheme does not assure or guarantee any returns.
Being in the Multi-Cap category, the scheme will invest across all market capitalization categories. The scheme will invest a minimum of 25% each in large, mid, and Small Cap stocks, with the balance of 25% providing flexibility to the fund manager to invest in market capitalization categories and/or foreign securities depending on opportunities available at the time. The investment approach will be bottom-up stock picking - where investments will be selected primarily based on specific criteria relevant to the company in question rather than general macroeconomic considerations. There will be no particular bias towards any sector. An exposure to various derivatives instruments is likely - for the purposes of hedging, portfolio balancing and optimizing returns. In the case of Debt and Money Market securities, the scheme aims to identify securities which offer optimal level of yields/returns, considering risk-reward ratio. With the aim of controlling risks rigorously, in-depth credit evaluation of the securities proposed to be invested in will be carried out by the Risk Management team of the AMC. The credit evaluation includes a study of the operating environment of the issuer, the short as well as long-term financial health of the issuer. The AMC may consider the ratings of such Rating Agencies as approved by SEBI to carry out the functioning of rating agencies. The scheme may also invest in Units issued by REITs & InvITs after doing due research on the same. The scheme may also invest in preference shares. Further, the Scheme may invest in other schemes managed by the AMC or in the Schemes of any other Mutual Funds, provided it is in conformity with the prevailing Regulations. As per the Regulations, no investment management fees will be charged for such investments. The Scheme may use derivative instruments like Interest Rate Swaps, Interest Rate Futures, Forward Rate Agreements or other derivative instruments for the purpose of hedging, portfolio balancing and other purposes, as permitted under the Regulations. Hedging using Interest Rate Futures could be perfect or imperfect, subject to applicable regulations. Usage of derivatives may expose the Scheme to certain risks inherent to such derivatives. It may also invest in securitized debt. The scheme may undertake repo transactions in corporate debt securities in accordance with the directions issued by RBI and SEBI from time to time. Such an investment shall be made subject to the guidelines which may be prescribed. For the present, the Scheme does not intend to enter into underwriting obligations. However, if the Scheme does enter into an underwriting agreement, it would do so with the prior approval of the Board of the AMC/Trustee.
