MySIPonline, an online platform that researches deep about various schemes by different AMCs, brings to you an analysis of how the assets of L&T India Value Fund are allocated. This scheme by L&T Mutual Fund was launched on January 08th, 2010 with an objective to provide investors an opportunity to invest mainly in undervalued securities that are bound to do well in future because of the growth scope that they hold. The assets that have been accumulated under management as on July 31st, 2018 was Rs. 8160 crores. Let’s understand how these assets have been allocated.
L&T India Value Fund’s Equity Allocation
It aims to invest in equity and equity related instruments up to a minimum of 80% and a maximum of 100% with risk factor being on the scale of medium to high. As on July 31st, 2018, its allocation in equity was 96.82% which is diversified across different caps such as giant-cap, large-cap, mid-cap, and small-cap. The assets allocated in them is 36.12%, 15.21%, 41.22%, and 7.45%, respectively. Since its inclination is more towards top companies rather than small companies, it indicates that the risk will be comparatively low compared to that in small-cap investments.
L&T India Value Fund’s Allocation in Securities Other Than Equity
This scheme may also invest up to 10% in foreign securities inclusive of overseas ETFs, as permitted, with the risk involvement being medium to high. It can also invest up to 20% in debt, money market instruments, domestic ETFs and cash as per regulations from time to time. The risk involved here will be low to medium.
