Asset Allocation

Under normal circumstances, the asset allocation pattern of the Scheme would be as follows:

Asset Class Indicative Allocation (% to net assets) Risk Profile
Stocks constituting Nifty Bank Index 95% to 100% Medium to High
Debt & money market instruments (with unexpired maturity not exceeding 91 days) and Liquid Schemes 0% to 5% Low

Exposure to equity derivatives of the index itself or its constituent stocks may be undertaken when equity shares are unavailable, insufficient or for rebalancing in case of corporate actions for a temporary period. The gross position to such derivatives will be restricted to 5% of net assets of the Scheme.

Short Duration for this purpose may include but not limited to the following:
a. If there is a dividend declared, the same needs to be reinvested into the Scheme. Though the Index would do the same next day (i.e. ex dividend), the Scheme would account for the dividend in about 15-20 days, post which the money can be reinvested. Till such time to reduce the tracking error the Scheme would take exposure in derivatives and post accrual of the dividend, fresh stocks would be bought in the proportion of the Index;
b. In case of rebalancing, if a stock is moving out and a new stock enters the Index, to manage the pay-in/ pay-out mismatch, the Scheme shall take exposure to derivatives, which would be for a very short term; and
c. In case liquidity pertaining to the underlying stock is limited and derivative is available at a cheaper price, the Scheme may take exposure to derivative to reduce tracking error. This position would be reversed as soon as the stock gains liquidity and starts trading at par.


  • The Scheme shall neither make investments in any Fund of Funds Scheme, Securitised Debt instrument, Credit Default Swap, Foreign Securities and/or ADRs/GDRs nor will it engage in short selling of securities.
  • The Scheme does not intend to participate in repo in corporate debt securities.
  • The funds under the Scheme shall be deployed in eligible securities, in accordance with the investment objective of the scheme within 5 Business Days from closure of NFO Period.
  • The Scheme can take derivative exposure upto a limit as stated in the tables above. The total exposure related to options premium paid will not exceed 5% of the net assets of the Scheme.
  • The cumulative gross exposure through equity, debt and derivative positions will not exceed 100% of the net assets of the Scheme. However, cash or cash equivalents with residual maturity of less than 91 days may be treated as not creating any exposure.
  • The Scheme may engage in Stock Lending in accordance with SEBI guidelines in this regard. Not more than 20% of the net assets of the Scheme invested in the stocks constituting Nifty Bank Index would generally be deployed in stock lending and not more than 5% of the net assets of the Scheme invested in the stocks constituting Nifty Bank Index would be deployed in Stock Lending to any single counterparty.
  • From time to time, the Scheme may hold cash and/or invest in the Collateralized Borrowing & Lending Obligations (CBLO) or repo to meet the liquidity requirements.
  • Pending deployment of funds of the Scheme in securities in terms of the investment objective of the Scheme, the AMC may park the funds of the Scheme in short term deposits of scheduled commercial banks, subject to the guidelines issued by SEBI vide its circular dated April 16, 2007, as amended from time to time.
  • The Fund will endeavor to keep the tracking error as low as possible. Under normal circumstances, such tracking error is not expected to exceed 2% per annum.
