PGIM India Mutual Fund announced the launch of ‘PGIM India Balanced Advantage Fund’ today. The NFO will open for subscription on January 15, 2021 and will close on January 29, 2021. The Benchmark Index of the fund is CRISIL Hybrid 50+50 Moderate Index. The scheme aims to provide capital appreciation and income distribution to the investors by dynamically managing the asset allocation between equity and fixed income using equity derivatives strategies, arbitrage opportunities and pure equity investments. The scheme seeks to reduce the volatility by diversifying the assets across equity and fixed income. The Fund will be managed by Aniruddha Naha (for equity investments), Kumaresh Ramakrishnan (for debt and money market investments) and Anandha Padmanabhan (for overseas investments).
The minimum initial investment in the scheme is Rs 5000 and in multiples of Re 1 thereafter. The additional application amount is Rs 1000 and in multiples of Re 1 thereafter. The scheme will follow a tax efficient dynamic asset allocation model as fund is categorized as equity oriented scheme. 65 per cent minimum allocation to equity would be a mix of directional equity and arbitrage.
Speaking on the launch; Ajit Menon, CEO at PGIM India Mutual Fund said, “The Balanced Advantage Fund category is an excellent investment solution for investors. A model based approach helps in automatically rebalancing investments between equity and fixed income in a tax efficient manner without the investor having to keep track herself. The dynamic asset allocation model that the PGIM India Balanced Advantage Fund will follow considers 15 years rolling PE average as the long-term average PE in order to capture changing trends in the equity markets. As markets mature over periods of time, we believe that this feature will keep the model always relevant. This fund is suitable for investors with moderately high-risk appetite. The fund has the potential to deliver consistent long-term risk-adjusted returns & smooth investing experience by dynamically allocating money between equity and fixed income instruments.”
