* For detailed asset allocation please refer slide no 14


Capital Protection through Portfolio Orientation

• Capital protection orientation is expected to be achieved through investing in high credit quality debt securities

• The scheme would invest in AAA and equivalent rated corporate papers, Gsec and SDLs predominantly

• The maturity of the debt security not to exceed the tenure of the scheme, thereby not undertaking any significant interest rate risks


Capital Protection through Portfolio Orientation contd…

Example of Capital Protection through Portfolio Orientation:


• Maturity of debt security reasonably matched with scheme’s tenure

• Coupons reinvested at 4% p.a

• Assumed YTM of 3 years AAA rated bond is at 8.00%

Thus for e.g.,

➢ A bond with coupon of 9%, residual maturity of 3 years and face value of Rs 1000 is expected to be trading at Rs 1025.77

➢ The effective return over 3 years will be approx. 7.69%

➢ By investing Rs 80.08 at the beginning, we can expect it to grow to Rs 100 at the end of 3 years

➢ The remaining Rs 19.92 can be invested into equities, after adjusting for the expenses and associated costs

Key Risks to above assumptions and calculations:

➢ Partial or full Default of underlying securities

➢ Coupon reinvested at lower rates

This is only an example to show how the protection of capital originates from the portfolio structure. Please consult your financial advisor before

taking any decision of investment.
