The investment objective of the Scheme is to generate long-term capital appreciation/income by investing in a Diversified portfolio of Equity & Equity Related Instruments, Debt & Money Market Instruments, and Gold Related Instruments.

The scheme will be benchmarked against NIFTY 50 TRI (40%) + CRISIL Short Term Bond Fund AII Index (45%) + Domestic Price of Gold (15%).

The scheme will have a Direct and Regular Plan. The Fund managers will allocate Equity & Equity Related Instruments (35-65%), Debt & Money Market Instruments (25-55) and Gold Related Instruments (10-20%). The Fund will predominantly invest in securities of Nifty 50 index and other large-cap stocks for its equity component, sovereign and PSU debt securities across durations for its fixed income allocation and Quantum Gold ETF & Other Gold related instruments for its gold component.

The Investment Strategy:
Portfolio allocation between the equity, debt/ money markets and gold broadly depends on the relative valuations between the asset classes. Relative valuations are determined by evaluation of various influencing factors that include:

 Price/Earnings Ratio relative to historical averages
 The relationship between Earnings Yield to Bond Yield relative to historical averages
 Macroeconomic factors prevailing globally, and within India

Commenting on the fund launch, Mr. Chirag Mehta, Chief Investment Officer, Quantum AMC, said, “The number of investors in mutual funds is increasing rapidly and this fund provides these first-time investors to have a measured approach to equity markets along with diversification from gold and debt, thereby providing a rewarding and relatively smoother investment experience.”

The Co-fund Manager, Mr. Pankaj Pathak, Sr. Fund Manager, Quantum AMC said, “The fund is launched with an intention to provide an option to fixed deposit by potentially providing better returns over the long run. The fund simplifies investment decisions with its one-stop diversified solution that invests across asset classes and enhances tax efficiency through indexation benefits. Investors in the 30% tax slab stand to benefit significantly compared to traditional fixed deposits.”
