Aditya Birla Mutual Fund has launched a new fund offer for ABSL Nifty-50 Equal Index Fund. The NFO is open for subscriptions between May 19 and June 2, 2021.
The fund’s objective is to mimic the securities listed under the Nifty 50 Equal Weight Index and stay in line with the index’s returns.
Index funds are mutual funds that imitate the composition of a particular stock market index. Index funds are hence known as passively managed mutual funds. Fund managers cannot decide which stocks will move in and out and how much of the fund’s money will be used to purchase which stock.
The scheme will mimic the Nifty 50 Equal Weight Index, the scheme’s benchmark index. The index comprises the same stocks listed in Nifty 50. In the Nifty 50 Equal Weight Index, the difference is the socks are given equal weightage. Each stock is given a 2% allocation.
In Nifty 50, stocks are weighted according to the market capitalization.
|Instrument||Risk Profile||Normal Allocation (% of assets)|
|Equity & Equity related securities constituting the Nifty 50 Equal Weight Index||Medium to High||95% – 100%|
|Debt and Money Market Instruments||Low to Medium||0% – 5%|
The performance of the scheme will be benchmarked to the performance of Nifty 50 Equal-Weight TRI. It represents an alternative weighting strategy based on its parent index, Nifty 50. The index includes the same companies, Nifty 50 but weighted equally.
