Highlights

  • Long term capital growth and income
  • An open ended equity scheme investing in equity and equity related securities including the use of equity derivatives strategies and arbitrage opportunities with balance exposure in debt and money market instruments

Helping you seize the right window of opportunity.

Presenting, Aditya Birla Sun Life Equity Savings Fund (An Open ended Equity Scheme) – a unique investment opportunity that aims to provide capital appreciation and income distribution by using a combination of equity derivatives strategies, arbitrage opportunities and pure equity investments. This provides a greater degree of diversification than investing in a single asset class. This scheme also provides the tax efficiency of an equity fund i.e. the income becomes tax-free if the holding period is more than one year.

 
 

Highlights

 
  • Tax efficiency
  • Lower volatility
  • Diversified strategy
 

Investment objective

 

To provide capital appreciation and income distribution to the investors by using a blend of equity derivatives strategies, arbitrage opportunities and pure equity investments. The scheme does not guarantee/indicate any returns. There is no assurance that the schemes' objectives will be met.

 
 

Key features of Aditya Birla Sun Life Equity Savings Fund

 

Low volatility – Enjoys low volatility and risk compared to other equity funds due to limited exposure to directional equity

Arbitrage opportunities – A part of portfolio will be managed using the arbitrage strategy by taking advantage of price differentials prevailing in equity market.

Tax efficiency – With an asset allocation mix comprising of spot equity, arbitrage and fixed income, tax treatment is similar to that of equity funds

Diversified strategy – An efficient mix of 3 strategies helps reduce volatility while providing opportunities to participate in the market upside while restricting the downside.

 
 

What is arbitrage opportunity?

 

An Arbitrage opportunity arises when there is a price differential or mispricing prevailing for stocks/index in different markets segments (cash & futures) due to market inefficiencies. It can be used to one's advantage by buying stock/index from the market where the price is lower and selling it in the market where the price is higher and vice-versa. Let us understand this with the help of an illustration –

For example, Company XYZ's stock trades at ` 100 per share in cash market and the same is trading at ` 105 in futures market. An arbitrageur would purchase the stock for ` 100 in cash market and sell it for ` 105 in future market, making the difference of ` 5 per share as profit.

This is assuming the cost to be zero. In practice there is a cost of executing the arbitrage transaction (in this case, it's the STT and the brokerage charges) – The above is only for the purpose of illustration.

Discipline

The scheme targets to maintain sector exposure within a certain range of the sectoral weight in the benchmark index i.e. 30% S&P BSE 200 TRI + 30% Crisil Short Term Bond Fund Index + 40% Nifty 50 Arbitrage Index, in order to maintain diversification and avoid excessive concentration in a single sector. This discipline also reduces overdependence on a particular industry, aiming to give stability to your portfolio.
