Money Market Returns with Higher Tax Efficiency

All categories of investors try to minimise their tax outgo from investments and prefer tax efficient investment products. While there are many tax-efficient investments options, however, you need to remain invested for a certain period to get tax efficient returns.

Equity is the only asset class which spares you from paying tax if you remain invested for a year. But it comes with inherent short term volatility. What is required is an equity investment option that provides tax efficient returns for short term needs with manageable risk.

The investment in question is Aditya Birla Sun Life Arbitrage Fund. It focuses on enhancing the portfolio returns by taking advantage of price differentials in cash and derivative markets. Broadly, it works it the concept of buying at lower price from one market and selling at higher price in other market. For many, this could be a substitute for short-term bank fixed deposit (FD) since it offers you competitive returns with tax efficiency. Unlike bank FD, where you get taxed according to your tax slab. Here, it is a flat 15 percent for investment less than a year, and no tax if you hold it for a year.


The scheme aims to identify the price differentials prevailing for a stock / index in 2 market segments (cash, futures, etc). Trades are executed once the price differentials are identified. Generally, trades will be executed provided they generate returns higher than short term debt instruments (call money, money market instruments, liquid schemes, etc) net of expenses. A portion of the corpus will also be invested in direct equities, IPO's, Options, open offer and buy-back. Allocation to these strategies will be restricted to 10% of the corpus. The Fund Benchmark is Nifty 50 Arbitrage.
