Risk profile of the Scheme Mutual Fund investments are subject to market risks. Please read the SID carefully for details on risk factors before investment. Scheme specific risk factors are summarized below:
1. The investments under the Scheme are oriented towards equity/equity related securities of Companies belonging to the infrastructure industries and hence will be affected by risks associated with the infrastructure industries. Further amongst the infrastructure sector as defined under the investment strategy the majority of the equity/ equity oriented investments could be under the single sector. Hence if the said sector does not perform positively as expected by the Fund Manager of the Scheme, the Schemes’ performance may be adversely affected due to a risk associated with non- diversification and thus could affect the value of investments.
2. Although the Scheme seeks to make investments in equity and equity related securities of the Infrastructure sector, this scheme will not be a sector specific scheme for the purpose of monitoring the investment restrictions applicable to the Scheme and hence investments per issuer under the Scheme will not exceed 10% of the net assets of the Scheme.
3. As the Scheme may hold securities that are not in the S&P CNX Nifty Index and may invest in limited number of sectors with higher concentration to certain sectors and industries, it may perform differently from the general stock market. Further Schemes’ performance may differ from the benchmark index to the extent of the investments held in the debt segment, as per the investment pattern indicated under normal circumstances.
4. Given that the Scheme seeks to invest in equity/ equity related securities of the Companies belonging to the infrastructure sector and that the investment concentration may be high in certain companies belonging to the said sector, the volatility and/or performance of the said sector and/or of the scrips belonging to this sector can have a material adverse bearing on the performance of the Scheme.
