Reliance Mutual Fund Schemes:

Equity/Growth Schemes

The aim of growth funds is to provide capital appreciation over the medium to long- term. Such schemes normally invest a major part of their corpus in equities. Such funds have comparatively high risks. These schemes provide different options to the investors like dividend option, capital appreciation, etc. and the investors may choose an option depending on their preferences. The investors must indicate the option in the application form. The mutual funds also allow the investors to change the options at a later date. Growth schemes are good for investors having a long-term outlook seeking appreciation over a period of time.

Debt/Income Schemes

The aim of income funds is to provide regular and steady income to investors. Such schemes generally invest in fixed income securities such as bonds, corporate debentures, Government securities and money market instruments. Such funds are less risky compared to equity schemes. These funds are not affected because of fluctuations in equity markets. However, opportunities of capital appreciation are also limited in such funds. The NAVs of such funds are affected because of change in interest rates in the country. If the interest rates fall, NAVs of such funds are likely to increase in the short run and vice versa. However, long term investors may not bother about these fluctuations.

Sector Specific Schemes

These are the funds/schemes which invest in the securities of only those sectors or industries as specified in the offer documents. e.g. Pharmaceuticals, Software, Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG), Petroleum stocks, etc. The returns in these funds are dependent on the performance of the respective sectors/industries. While these funds may give higher returns, they are more risky compared to diversified funds. Investors need to keep a watch on the performance of those sectors/industries and must exit at an appropriate time. They may also seek advice of an expert.

Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs)

Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) are usually passively managed mutual fund schemes tracking a benchmark index and reflect the performance of that index. These schemes are listed on the stock exchange and therefore have the flexibility of trading like a share on the stock exchange. It can also be looked as a security that tracks an index, a commodity or a basket of assets like an index fund, but trades like a stock on an exchange, thus experiencing price changes throughout the day as it is bought and sold.

Fixed Maturity Plans (FMPs)

Fixed Maturity Plans (FMPs) are basically debt oriented investment schemes with a pre-specified tenure offered by mutual funds. FMPs invest in a portfolio of debt instruments whose maturity coincides with the maturity of the concerned FMP. The primary objective of a FMP is to generate income while aiming to protect the capital by investing in a portfolio of debt and money market securities. Since FMPs are available with several maturity options, one can invest in the relevant plan depending upon his investment horizon and the requirement of cash flows.

The manager then decides whether to buy or not from the investment banker. The investment banker gets a commission for carrying out the trade of stock or bond. The investment manager gets paid based on the amount of money he is managing for a client but gets paid whether or not he gains or loses money. Asset Management companies typically look for investment bankers because they have quantitative analysis skills, which are necessary to evaluate companies. Management consultants are also valued because they are able to quickly immerse themselves and get to know a given industry.

ICICI Prudential Long Term Floating Rate Plan

Much as we may dislike it, interest rates change constantly in response to changes in the underlying fundamentals. Every change in interest rates impacts the value of our fixed income portfolio i.e increase in rates reduces the value of what we hold, and vice versa. If interest rates on instruments in the portfolio keep getting reset according to the prevailing market rates, we may be able to focus on the interest income, without undue worry about its impact on our portfolio value. ICICI Prudential Long Term Floating Rate Plan enables such a focus on interest rates, creating a portfolio that responds to these changes and minimizes their impact. ICICI Prudential Long Term Floating Rate Plan further extends this benefit by tapping into products whose interest rates are benchmarked to longer term rates.

Investment Philosophy

ICICI Prudential Long Term Floating Rate Plan is a debt fund that invests predominantly in debt securities with a floating rate of interest. The majority of floating rate instruments in the portfolio are benchmarked to the 1 year INBNK rate and the rest are benchmarked to a short term rate like the Mibor with resets taking place at 3 month / 6 month intervals. This also ensures that the portfolio has limited interest rate risk. The portfolio also invests in fixed rate securities, but spreads out its investments such that parts of the portfolio mature regularly, enabling redeployment at newer rates. The portfolio also uses the interest rate swap market to swap fixed rates for floating rates. During times of increases in interest rates, the Plan enables focus on the interest income, rather than losses in portfolio value.

Benefits

ICICI Prudential Long Term Floating Rate Plan offers the following key benefits:

  • Focus on accrual income that derives from floating rate instruments.
  • Reduced interest rate risk of longer term instruments.

ICICI Prudential Income Plan

Our need to keep some money in fixed return instruments stems from a need to earn regular income, or from an aversion to risk. ICICI Prudential Income Plan is for those investors who seek to deploy part of their funds in fixed income products as a conscious investment option.

The fund enables you to earn a total return-made up of both interest income and changes in the value of capital, a facility that comes only with debt funds that do not restrict themselves to generating merely interest income. As market interest rates change, the value of your portfolio also changes, creating a total return portfolio in debt securities.

Benefits:

ICICI Prudential Income Plan offers the following key benefits:

Strategic deployment of funds in the debt markets as part of an overall asset allocation to fixed income securities.

Participation in markets that are large and institution-dominated.

Potential to earn total return from both interest and capital gains, with the attendant risks of capital loss as well.

ICICI Prudential Child Care Plan

Give Your Child the license to dream

Our child wants to be a surgeon one day, an astronaut the next day and may be a fashion designer the day after. So small - yet children dream so big, even if the dream changes every day. Education, however, is fast becoming a very expensive proposition for which you need to start planning from today. Even as your child takes off on his/her flights of fancy, you need to be firmly rooted on the ground, managing your financial resources so as to give your child the best education.

ICICI Prudential Child Care Plan is an investment instrument specially designed to help you give your child a head start in life. It offers two options - Gift and Study, for the differing needs of parents with children in differing age groups.

ICICI Prudential FMCG Fund

It is not always the case that we like our investments to be diversified across sectors. There are times when we believe that a particular sector might do better than the others, and therefore choose to increase your exposure to that sector. Sector funds enable spiking a diversified portfolio with sharper sectoral focus, as a strategic means to managing their asset allocation.

ICICI Prudential FMCG Fund is a diversified sector fund that invests in companies which are benefiting from the consumption boom in the Indian economy.

Investment Philosophy

ICICI Prudential FMCG Fund is an open-ended equity fund, that predominantly invests in companies with a retail and consumption focus. The portfolio is made up of fewer number of scrips, chosen to reflect the prospects of the FMCG sector. Within the broad definition of the sector, scrips are held across sub sectors like food, retail distribution, apparel, and consumables. A smaller allocation to other sectors is permitted, purely for defensive considerations. The fund adopts a bottom-up stock selection strategy to choose its investments.

Benefits

ICICI Prudential FMCG Fund offers the following key benefits:

Enables the investor to allocate his equity assets according to his sectoral preferences and use the fund to implement his views on the sector.

The fund also enables investors to diversify in terms of style into sharply focused thematic fund investing in FMCG sector.

See performance for the fund in the graph below:

Investor Profile

This fund is ideal for:

Investors who like to sacrifice some diversification, in the interest of pursuing a sector strategy.

Investors who view the fund in the context of their existing portfolio, rather than choose the fund as a stand alone product.

Investors who prefer the FMCG sector for their investments.

Systematic investing:

One of the simplest and most sensible ways of investing, especially when you are just starting off on your Investment journey is to use the Systematic Investing Option.

ICICI Prudential Mutual Fund allows you to invest systematically through the following 3 different systematic investing options which allow you to make your transactions - whether purchasing a new fund, transferring between funds or redeeming from a fund - in a systematic and disciplined manner.

1. ICICI Prudential Systematic Investment Plan (ICICI Prudential SIP)

ICICI Prudential SIP allows you to make your investments in periodic installments instead of a lump sum amount. This has the following advantages:

  • It helps you start small, with as low as Rs. 1000 per month.
  • It helps you reduce the risk of mistiming the market.
  • It helps you buy more units when the market is down and fewer units when the market is up. Thus reducing the cost of entry.

2. ICICI Prudential Systematic Transfer Plan (ICICI Prudential STP)

ICICI Prudential STP allows you to make a lump sum investment in a money-market or a debt oriented ICICI Prudential Scheme and subsequently transfer partial amounts to any equity oriented ICICI Prudential Scheme at regular intervals. This way your money continues to earn while it waits to be fully deployed in the equity scheme of your choice. You can choose from three frequencies(weekly, monthly and quarterly) if you wish to transfer your investments from one scheme to another.

3. ICICI Prudential Systematic Withdrawal Plan (ICICI Prudential SWP)

ICICI Prudential SWP operates like the reverse of ICICI Prudential SIP. It allows you to systematically withdraw your existing investment in a ICICI Prudential Mutual Fund scheme by redeeming your units in periodic installments instead of all at one go. As in the case of the SIP, this helps you reduce your risk of mistiming your exit from a particular scheme.

Portfolio management services:

ICICI Prudential Portfolio Managers, a division of ICICI Prudential Asset Management Company, is created especially to meet the investment needs of a select clientele who require focused portfolios.

As Portfolio Managers, they endeavor that every portfolio created by them reflects the values on which ICICI Prudential has been built. A commitment towards transparency and service. Add to that, a strong research driven investment process.

Information and accessibility is the key

By providing us with information that is updated on a daily basis and unmatched interactivity, a whole new era in portfolio management has now been ushered in. A first in the industry; via a password protected website, we will have access to :

Convenience and customization through their services:

One more advantage of being with them is that we will have a team to support us. Initially, we will interface with a Customer Relationship Manager - your one point contact, and a personal Portfolio Manager - our portfolio investment guide, to discuss in depth and understand our investment objectives, our risk-return appetite and establish required service levels. On the basis of this, they shall evolve a portfolio that is best-suited for us.

Thereafter, their Customer Relationship Manager will periodically interact with us for any other clarifications and services that may require.

Conclusion:

So from the above we can conclude that a Mutual Fund is a trust that pools the savings of a number of investors who share a common financial goal. Mutual Fund is a mechanism for pooling the resources by issuing units to the investors and investing funds in securities in accordance with objectives as disclosed in offer document. The main objective of mutual funds is to provide an opportunity for lower income groups to acquire without much difficulty, property in the form of shares.

And as I already told that Reliance mutual fund and ICICI Prudential mutual fund both are growing at a very fast pace. And both are contributing a lot in the Indian financial sector and to the Indian economy.

But Reliance mutual fund is growing at a more rate than ICICI Prudential mutual fund.
