The investment strategy is aimed at generating income and reduce interest rate volatility by investing in debt securities that mature on or before the maturity of the scheme and at the same time attempting to generate growth through investments in equity and equity related instruments.
a. Debt Portion: Investments may be made in such instruments, which, in the opinion of the Fund Manager, are of acceptable credit risk where chances of default are at a minimum. The Fund Manager may generally be guided by, but not restrained by, the ratings announced by various rating agencies on the assets in the portfolio. The maturity profile of debt instruments may be selected in accordance with the Fund Manager's view regarding market conditions, interest rate outlook and stability of rating.
Emphasis may be given to choosing securities, which, in the opinion of the Fund Manager, are less prone to default risk. The Scheme is not restrained from investing in listed/unlisted and / or rated / unrated debt securities, Gilts / Government Securities, securities issued/guaranteed by the Central / State Governments, securities issued by public / private sector companies / corporations, financial institutions and / or money market instruments such as commercial paper, certificates of deposit, permitted securities under a repo agreement etc., provided the investments are within the limits indicated in the Asset Allocation Table. The instruments may carry fixed rate of return or floating rate of return or may be issued on discount basis. The Scheme may invest in call money / term money market in terms of RBI guidelines in this respect. Investment in unrated debt securities will be made with the prior approval of the Board of the AMC, provided the investment is in terms of the parameters approved by the Board of the Trustee. Where the proposed investment is not within the parameters as mentioned above, approval of the Boards of both the AMC and the Trustee will be taken before making the investment.
The AMC will have an internal policy for selection of assets of the portfolio from time to time, taking into account multiple ratings, rating migration, credit premium over sovereign risk, general economic conditions and such other criteria. Such an internal policy from time to time will lay down maximum/minimum exposure for different ratings, norms for investing in unrated paper, liquidity norms and so on.
b. Equity Portion: The investment strategy of the AMC will be directed to investing in stocks as indicated in the Asset Allocation Table, which, in the opinion of the Fund Manager, are priced at a material discount to their intrinsic value. Such intrinsic value will be a function of both past performance and future growth prospects. The process of discovering the intrinsic value will be through in-house research, supplemented by research available from other sources.
The equity portfolio may not be fully diversified at all points of time as the Fund Manager may restrict investments in a few select companies.
To avoid duplication of portfolios and to reduce expenses, the Scheme may invest in any other scheme of the Fund to the extent permitted by the Regulations. In such an event, as per the Regulations, the AMC cannot charge management fees on the amounts of the Schemes so invested. The Fund may underwrite primary issuances of securities subject to the Regulations.
The Scheme may also use various derivative and hedging products from time to time, in the manner permitted by SEBI.
