Edelweiss Mutual Fund has launched Edelweiss Monthly Income Plan, an open-ended income scheme. The scheme seeks to invest at least 70% of its net assets in debt and money market instruments and the balance in equity and equity related instruments. “Our quant based equity investment style and a debt portfolio at lower duration, will endeavour to produce better risk adjusted returns than conventional MIPs,” Edelweiss Asset Management Ltd (AMC), chief executive officer, Vikaas M Sachdeva said. “With equity markets a little volatile and an interest rate scenario that has seen a significant hardening in high inflation regime, we believe this is the right time for investors to invest in this scheme,” Mr Sachdeva said.
The scheme seeks to generate returns that are consistent with the moderate levels of risk and liquidity through active management of a diversified portfolio constituted of debt and money market instruments, securitised debt, government securities, and equity & equity related instruments. Since the equity component of the portfolio of the scheme would provide the opportunity for generating enhanced returns of the portfolio, the AMC will focus on managing the same with quant-based investment style, making the scheme one of India’s premier quant-based equity investment products. In parallel, its debt portfolio will seek to produce consistent returns that will serve to counter balance any volatility produced by equity component, he said.
