This was one of the first fund houses to launch fully repatriable investments by NRIs/FIIs and since then it has received investments from across the globe.

The AMC has an extremely strong investment policy. They believe that most people invest for creating wealth and they also need trusted financial partners who will take the right decisions on behalf of them. They believe in catering to both categories of investors and they provide them with an array of mutual funds ranging across different categories and market capitalization.

The basically aim for long-term growth, as well as short-term monetary gain.

Equity Savings Fund typically invests the total capital in three segments- pure equity, arbitrage and debt funds. Generally, one-third of the total capital in pure equity, one-third in debt funds and the balance in arbitrage funds. However, the composition varies from fund to fund. The equity component can vary from 20-40% approx and depends on the type of mutual fund.

What does investing in Taurus Equity Mutual Funds actually mean?

Suppose a mutual fund invests in ten stocks and total current market value of these stocks is 1.1 Crore. Out of this, the AMC deducts say, 0.1 Crore for operating the fund (this is known as the expense ratio). So the net value is 1 crore. Now the AMC will divide this 1 Crore into say, 10,000 parts. These parts are known as units. The cost of one unit is 1Cr/10,000 = Rs. 1000. This is known as the Net Asset Value (NAV) of the mutual fund. Suppose the AMC has set a minimum investment requirement of Rs. 500. Then if you pay Rs. 500, you will get 0.5 units of the fund. Remember that the cost of one unit is the cost when you made the purchase. Suppose after one year, the NAV has fallen to Rs. 700 per unit and you wish to exit the fund (also known as redemption), then you sell your 0.5 units back to the AMC and get 0.5 x Rs. 700 = Rs. 350 back. Yes, you invested Rs. 500 and got back Rs. 350 – a loss of 150 over a year. The point is, that you buy units at current NAV and sell units (fully or partially) at current NAV. This is what investing in mutual fund actually means.

How to invest in Taurus Mutual Funds on Groww?

One of the best ways to hedge against the small-cap volatility is to adopt a phased approach, also known as Systematic Investment Plan (SIP) approach.
