The funds collected under the Scheme shall be invested in equities, cumulative convertible preference shares and fully convertible debentures and bonds of companies. Investment may be made in partly convertible debentures and bonds including those issued on a rights basis subject to the condition that, as far as possible, the non convertible portion of the debenture so acquired or subscribed shall be disinvested within a period of 12 months.
It shall be ensured that funds of the Scheme shall remain invested to the extent of atleast 80% in securities specified above. In exceptional circumstances, this requirement may be dispensed with by the AMC, in order that the interest of the Unit holders are protected.
Pending investment of funds of the Scheme in the required manner, the AMC may invest the funds of the Scheme in short term money market instruments or other liquid instruments or both. After 3 years from the date of allotment of the Units, the Mutual Fund may hold upto 20% of net assets of the Scheme in short-term money market instruments.
If the investment in equities and related instruments falls below 80% of the portfolio of the Scheme at any point in time, it would be endeavoured to review and rebalance the composition.
The Scheme will retain the flexibility to invest in the entire range of debt instruments and money market instruments. Investment in Debt securities (including securitised debt) and Money Market Instruments will be as per the limits in the asset allocation table of the Scheme, subject to permissible limits laid under SEBI (MF) Regulations. Please refer to ‘Debt securities’ and ‘Money Market Instruments’ under the section ‘WHERE WILL THE SCHEME(S) INVEST’ in the SID.
The ELSS (Equity Linked Savings Scheme) guidelines, as applicable, would be adhered to in the management of this Scheme.
Consistent with the investment objective of the scheme, the AMC aims to identify securities which offer superior levels of yield at low levels of risk. The investment team of the AMC will carry out an internal credit analysis of all securities included in the investment universe. The Scheme may also use various derivative 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 Unit holders’ interest. The Investment Manager may therefore enter into forward contracts, future contracts or buy or sell options in an effort to maintain risks at acceptable levels. The Scheme may also invest in suitable investment avenues in overseas financial markets for the purpose of diversification, commensurate with the Scheme objectives and subject to necessary stipulations by SEBI / RBI. Towards this, the Mutual Fund may also appoint overseas investment advisors and other service providers, as and when permissible under the regulations.
