Aditya Birla Sun Life Money Manager Fund (Growth) is an open ended debt scheme that invests in money market instruments. These investments are in the secondary market. Money Market Mutual Funds (MMMFs) invest primarily in high-quality short-term financial securities, as well as cash and cash equivalents. They are best suited to risk-averse investors with a 1 year to 5 years investment horizon. Despite the fact that they do not guarantee profits, they do provide a predictable return that is usually deemed risk-free due to the high-quality of the investments. The investment manager’s goal will be to allocate the scheme’s assets between various fixed and floating interest rate securities, as well as to properly use derivatives such as swaps and FRAs, in order to achieve steady returns. The Long Term Plan’s portfolio will typically be biased toward longer-term maturities.
The scheme’s main goal is to generate consistent income by investing in a portfolio that consists mostly of floating rate debt or money market instruments. A part of the scheme’s net assets may be invested in fixed-rate debt securities and money market instruments. There will be no investments in any security that has a residual maturity of more than 365 days. It is the intention of the scheme that the investments in securitised debts will not, normally exceed 50% of the net assets of the Scheme.
For the benefit of investors, the scheme will strive to optimize the risk-return proposition. Macroeconomic research, credit risk, and liquidity management will be the focus of the investing process. Based on the mandates, the scheme will maintain a judicious mix of cash, short-term, and medium-term instruments. In addition to using ratings from rating agencies, the scheme will use its credit evaluation procedure as part of its credit risk assessment. To maintain liquidity, the scheme will invest a reasonable share of its assets in relatively liquid assets.
