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 Scheme’s investment portfolio will be concentrated in select sectors only. This might lead to increased volatility in the movement of NAV
2. Equity instruments by nature are volatile and prone to price fluctuations on a daily basis due to both, micro and macro factors. Trading volumes, settlement periods and transfer procedures may restrict liquidity of investments in equity and equity related securities. Different segments of the Indian financial markets have different settlement periods, and such periods may be extended significantly by unforeseen circumstances. The length of the settlement may affect the schemes in the event that the Scheme has to meet an inordinately large number of redemptions
3. Derivatives products carry the credit risk (risk of default by counterparty), market risk (due to market movements) and liquidity risk (due to lack of liquidity in derivatives). No principal amount is exchanged. A notional principal amount is agreed upon for interest calculation purposes. Only the difference between the two rates is exchanged at agreed intervals or payment dates. When fixed interest rate amount is higher, the fixed rate payer pays the difference amount i.e. fixed interest rate amount minus the floating interest rate amount or vice-versa.
