May 07, 2012
Mumbai, 7 May 2012: JPMorgan Asset Management India Private Limited (JPMAMIPL) today announced the launch of JPMorgan India Hybrid Fund Series 1, 37 months closed ended income scheme. The fund is open for subscription from 7 May 2012 to 21 May 2012. The fund performance will be benchmarked against 15% BSE 200 + 85% CRISIL Composite Bond Fund Index.
The primary investment objective of the Scheme is to generate returns and reduce interest rate volatility, through a portfolio of fixed income securities that are maturing on or before the maturity of the Scheme along with capital appreciation through equity exposure.
Nandkumar Surti, Managing Director & Chief Executive Officer, JPMAMIPL said, "In the current scenario, investors are quite wary of the equity market. Therefore, it is important to have a diversified portfolio that includes fixed income as a core component irrespective of the state of the equity market. We always advise retail investors to invest across boundaries of asset classes and diversify their investments."
The scheme would allocate 65% - 95% of assets in debt and money market instruments including Government of India Securities with low to medium risk profile, 5% - 35% of assets in equity & equity related instruments with medium to high risk profile. 95% to 100% of debt allocation is intended to be invested in AAA rated non-convertible debentures and up to 5% in cash & cash equivalents. The scheme offers two options viz. growth and dividend (payout) option. No entry and exit load is applicable for the scheme.
