The fund aims to capitalize on the potential upside of equities while attempting to limit the downside through dynamic portfolio management. This will be done by investing in equity & equity related instruments and active use of debt, money market instruments and derivatives. The equity portfolio will be built basis Helios’s Elimination Investing (EITM) philosophy – based on eight fundamental screening factors that have repeatedly proven to be effective in weeding out poor performers, gravitating towards winners, and creating a sustainable outperformance profile.

The investment strategy will be to normally maintain gross equity and equity-related exposure between 65%-100% and the net equity exposure between 30% to 80%. Various derivative strategies would be used for hedging against market headwinds.

Helios Balanced Advantage Fund (BAF) will be benchmarked against CRISIL Hybrid 50+50 – Moderate Total Return Index (TRI). The scheme will be managed by Mr. Alok Bahl and Mr. Pratik Singh for equity investments and Mr. Utssav Modi for debt portfolio management.

On an average, Bengaluru has been among the top three cities in terms of contribution towards mutual fund growing AUM with BAF category industry AUM standing at ~INR 14,900 cr as of Jan ’24 (Source: MFDex). The city being the IT and ITES hub, large corporates and even their employees invest in mutual funds. The young demographics and high disposable income levels show a huge growth potential for mutual fund penetration in Bengaluru.
