Fund Objective: The Scheme will endeavor to generate stable returns over short term with a low risk strategy while maintaining liquidity through a portfolio comprising debt and money market instruments. However, there can be no assurance that the investment objective of the scheme will be achieved.

Investment Strategy:

• The scheme proposes to invest in a diversified portfolio of high quality debt and money market securities to generate stable risk adjusted returns with a low risk strategy.
• The Indian debt market is in a phase of rapid transformation with liquidity and investment opportunities arising in various debt segments along with the introduction of new instruments. The fund manager will try to allocate assets of the scheme between various fixed income securities with the objective of achieving optimal risk adjusted returns. At the current juncture the Scheme would aim to invest in a mix of highest rated debt/money market instruments at shorter end in AAA/A1+ category, as under:
   a. High quality corporate bonds of 1 years to 5 years maturity
   b. 1yr maturity CDs to benefit from high rates and high liquidity provided by the bank CDs
• The overall portfolio construction will seek to play out the shape of the yield curve of different issuer classes. At the current juncture it would invest in short duration segment to benefit from “high carry” and lower volatility.
• The Scheme would aim to benefit from the softening in yields in foreseeable future as monetary easing (of rates and liquidity) takes place
• The investment team of the AMC will carry out rigorous in depth credit evaluation of the money market and debt instruments proposed to be invested in.
