A Fixed Term Plan (FTP) enables investors to get the indexation benefit from investments over a 3 year period, thus reducing the tax outgo. FTPs predominantly invest in corporate bonds of diverse credit ratings and hence, across sectors that lowers risk owing to diversification and may as well contribute towards optimization of portfolio gains.
The scheme will have Regular Plan and Direct Plan with a common portfolio and separate NAVs. Each of the Regular and Direct Plan under the scheme will have Growth Option, and Dividend Option (Normal Dividend and Quarterly Dividend sub-option) with Payout Facility. The Scheme is benchmarked against CRISIL Composite Bond Fund Index and will be managed by Mr. Mohit Sharma, Fund Manager, Aditya Birla Sun Life Mutual Fund.
The scheme aims to generate superior risk-adjusted returns on a consistent basis through a research driven investment approach in line with the investment objective of the scheme. The endeavour of the Fund Manager will be to allocate assets of the scheme between various debt and money market instruments maturing on or before the duration of the scheme. The actual percentage of investment in various fixed income securities will be decided after considering various factors like the prevailing interest rate and inflation scenario, performance of corporate sector, general liquidity and other considerations.
The AMC will calculate and disclose the first NAV(s) of the scheme not later than 5 (five) Business days from the date of allotment. Thereafter the NAV will be calculated and disclosed for every Business Day. No redemption or repurchase will be permitted prior to maturity of the Scheme. The scheme will be listed on NSE and/or any other recognized stock exchanges as may be decided by AMC from time to time and the Unitholders who wish to redeem units may do so through Stock Exchange at prevailing listed price on such Stock Exchange.
