The net assets of the Scheme will be invested primarily in equity and equity related instruments. The primary objective of the Scheme is to generate capital appreciation in the long term through equity investments in a diversified portfolio of Mid Cap and Large Cap `blue chip` companies.
As the name suggests, the Scheme will invest predominantly in `premier` or `blue chip` companies. A premier or blue chip company is typically a company with a successful track record, has reasonable competitive advantages in its business and has an able management.
It has been observed that while Mid Cap companies offer potential for higher returns, the risk associated with them is also higher. In order to manage the higher risk associated with Mid Caps, the following investment strategy is proposed for the Scheme:
Invest a minimum of 35% of the Scheme each in Large Caps and in Mid Caps. The balance of the Scheme will be a `swing portfolio` that can invest in either Mid Caps or Large Caps. The allocation of the swing portion between Large Caps and Mid Caps will be a function of the relative valuations of Large Caps vs Mid Caps.
Past experience suggests that at varying times, Mid Caps trade at varying discounts (and sometimes at a premium) to the Large Caps and this gives opportunities in terms of asset allocation between Mid Caps and Large Caps. The `swing` portion of the Scheme will invest in either Large Caps or Mid Caps depending on which is relatively more attractive.
This composition will, in our opinion, optimally combine the merits of targeting higher returns from Mid Cap companies, the risk control offered by investing in Large Caps and the additional returns that are targeted from the swing strategy.
To summarize this Scheme has three advantages:
- Exposure to Mid Caps which have higher growth potential.
- Control risk of Mid Caps by confining such investments to `premier` / `blue chip` companies; further exposure to Mid Caps will be increased only if they are relatively cheaper / more attractive than Large Caps
- `Swing` portion to optimize asset allocation.
