Fund Name
IDBI EQUITY SAVINGS FUND  (Previously known as IDBI Monthly Income Plan)
NatureAn open-ended equity scheme investing in equity, arbitrage and debt.
Investment Objective The investment objective of the Scheme is to generate regular income by investing in Debt and money market instruments and using arbitrage and other derivative strategies. The Scheme also intends to generate long capital appreciation through unhedged exposure to equity and equity related instruments. However, there can be no assurance or guarantee that the investment objective of the scheme will be achieved.
Asset Allocation The asset allocation pattern for the scheme is detailed in the table below:
Instrument Indicative allocation
(% of total Assets)
Risk Profile
  Minimum Maximum  
Equity and equity related instruments including derivatives out of which 65% 90% Medium to High
Cash future arbitrage opportunities*$ 20% 70% Low to Medium
Net Long Equity exposure** 20% 45% High
Debt & Money market Instruments (including margin for derivatives) 10% 35% Low
Units issued by Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) and Investment & Infrastructure Investment Trusts (InvITs) 0% 10% Medium to High
* This denotes equity exposure completely hedged with corresponding equity derivatives.
**Net long Equity means exposure to equity shares alone without a corresponding equity derivative exposure. It aims to gain from potential capital appreciation and thus is a directional equity exposure which will not be hedged.
$ The exposure to derivative shown in the above asset allocation table would normally be the exposure taken against the underlying equity investments and in such case, exposure to derivative will not be considered for calculating the gross exposure.
