The investment strategy of the Scheme will be to invest in a basket of securities forming part of S&P 500 TOP 50 Index in similar weight proportion.
The investment strategy would revolve around reducing the tracking error to the least possible through regular rebalancing of the portfolio, considering the change in weights of stocks in the Index as well as the incremental collections/redemptions in the Scheme. A part of the funds may be invested in debt and money market instruments, to meet the liquidity requirements.
Subject to the Regulations and the applicable guidelines the Scheme may invest in the schemes of Mutual Funds. The investment strategy shall be in line with the asset allocation mentioned under “Section II (c): How will the Scheme allocate its assets”.
