DSP Mutual Fund has announced the launch of DSP Multi Asset Allocation Fund as a part of its new fund offer.

DSP Mutual Fund announced the launch of the DSP Multi Asset Allocation Fund, an open-ended scheme investing in equity/equity-related securities, debt/money market instruments, commodity ETFs, exchange-traded commodity derivatives, and overseas securities.

The scheme opened for public subscription on September 07, 2023, and will close on September 21, 2023.

What kind of mutual fund scheme is this?

This is an open-ended scheme investing in equity/equity-related securities, debt/money market instruments, commodity ETFs, exchange-traded commodity derivatives, and overseas securities.

As per the press release shared by the fund house, “DSP Mutual Fund House can invest between 35-80 per cent in equities, of which up to 50 per cent can be in international equities. It can also invest 10-50 per cent in debt, 10-50 per cent in Gold ETF, 0-20 per cent in other commodities through ETFs & ETCDs, and up to 10 per cent in REITs & InvITs."

What is the main objective of investing in this fund?

The investment objective of the Scheme is to seek to generate long-term capital appreciation by multi asset classes including equity and equity-related securities, debt and money market instruments, commodity ETFs and exchange-traded commodity derivatives, and overseas securities.

However, there is no assurance that the investment objective of the scheme will be achieved.

Kalpen Parekh, MD & CEO, DSP Mutual Fund said, “The most underrated factor in investing is time. Once investors devote time, compounding follows. However, temporary price fluctuations distract most of us from staying invested. Hence, we want to offer a solution that reduces fluctuations by increasing the number of asset classes. Our multi-asset fund adds global stocks, precious metals, and bonds to Indian equities, thus, enabling investors to take advantage of cycles of each of these and eventually stay invested in the fund for longer due to lower fluctuations as against a single asset class."

How may one invest in this scheme?

Investors can invest under the scheme with a minimum investment of Rs 100 per plan/option and in multiples of Re 1. There is no upper limit for investment.

Under normal circumstances, the asset allocation of the scheme will be as follows:
