Below is the Views On Motilal Oswal Asset Management Company to launch Motilal Oswal Multi Asset Fund
Mumbai, 13 July 2020:In the current market scenario a conservative investor is faced with a real dilemma of where to invest. If one opts for the safety of fixed deposits the returns are too low. If one wants a little higher return, the risks are too high. What if there are downgrades? Are low yields compensating for the risks? Equities on the other hand have been highly volatileand gold prices have rallied very quickly.
The situation is akin to batting in a low scoring test match with very tough conditions. In such a scenario if you keep rotating the strike you will score the runs and win the game.
Motilal Oswal AMC launches Motilal Oswal Multi Asset Fund with an aim to help conservative investors survive the tough conditions of equity markets and lackluster interest rates in fixed income markets by keeping your scoreboard ticking with the help of a diversified basket of four asset classes.
An open ended fund belonging to multi asset allocation category, the fund’s investment objective is to generate long term capital appreciation by investing in a diversified portfolio comprising of Equity, International Equity Index Funds/ Equity ETFs, Debt and Money Market Instruments and Gold Exchange Traded Funds. Having a right asset allocation is the key to navigate such volatile periods.
The fund will be open for subscription from July 15, 2020. Different asset classes react differently to business cycles, changes in economy & geopolitical realities and hence have different levels of risk. Allocating funds solely to a single asset class is not prudent as it is prone to behave inconsistently, go through its own cycles and may not garner efficient inflation and risk adjusted returns. Asset allocation tries to balance the risk by dividing assets among investment vehicles. Low correlation among different asset classes provide the portfolio with an effective hedge lowering the volatility of the portfolio.
The asset allocation pattern of the Scheme is as follows:
As per SEBI Circular no. SEBI/HO/IMD/DF3/CIR/P/2017/114 dated October 6, 2017, Foreign Securities will not be treated as a separate asset class and accordingly International Equity Index Funds/Equity ETFs have been included in Equity and Equity related instruments. The scheme intends to invest in International Equity Index Funds/Equity ETFs upto 20% of net assets.
