Who Can Invest?

Mirae Asset Balanced Advantage Fund is an open, dynamic asset allocation mutual fund that invests in both equity and debt instruments. The fund employs a fundamental strategy to evaluate equity market valuations at any given time in order to determine its desired net equity position. Therefore, the fund seeks to provide investors with optimal participation in the equity market. The net equity and arbitrage position exposure assists the investor in achieving equity capital gains taxation at all times.

The debt exposure aims to provide the fund with an income strategy. The fund strives to deliver a risk-adjusted return while minimizing volatility through active management of its net equity position.

Since the portfolio is investing in equities, a high-risk tolerance level is required for investing in the scheme. Investors who aim to get exposure to equity and debt at the same time can consider Mirae Asset Balanced Advantage Fund.

Concluding Remarks

Mirae Asset Balanced Advantage Fund is an open-ended dynamic asset allocation fund that aims to invest dynamically across both equity and debt schemes. Investing across different asset classes will offer a different risk-return profile. And also offers relatively low correlation to each other in comparison to other investments within the same asset class. The fund manager will dynamically determine asset allocation between debt and equity depending on prevailing economic market and market conditions. The equity-debt mix at any point in time will be a function of various factors like equity valuations, interest rates, asset classes and risk management etc.

Also, the Scheme may periodically employ an internal proprietary algorithm to analyze the market and identify asset allocation opportunities.

Mirae Asset Balanced Advantage Fund is aimed at investors who wish to get exposure to both equity and debt schemes. Furthermore, it is considered to be an equity scheme, and a medium to long-term investment horizon is advisable. Moreover, since the Mirae Asset Balanced Advantage Fund does not guarantee returns, it is wise to monitor the investments closely.
