With the launch of this fund of funds, we address some of the questions investors may have, before making a sound investment decision.

Which mutual fund scheme to invest in? Is it the right time to invest? What is the cost? Is it tax efficient? Which stocks/sectors to invest in? Which asset class to invest in?

A multi-index fund of funds is a credible solution to these pain points. An in-house model determines optimal asset allocation to invest in the most apt themes across the industry. Equity exposure can help provide growth and diversification, debt can help provide stability while gold and silver can act as a hedge against any macro risk. All of this is at a low cost due to investments in passive funds.

The Aditya Birla Sun Life Multi-Index FoF will be available for subscription from 26th September 2022 to 10th October 2022.

Commenting on the launch, Mr A. Balasubramanian, Managing Director & CEO, Aditya Birla Sun Life AMC Limited said Our multiple funds help investors take exposure in various stocks/sectors while our fund of funds will help investors to select among the many schemes available at the same time.

The fund of funds provides the convenience of investing at a reasonable cost and is tax efficient.
