Types of Funds Offered
Equity Fund: Tata equity funds invest primarily in equity shares of companies that are publicly traded on stock exchanges. This means that the returns generated are as per the company’s performance for a given period of time. There are different funds inside this segment depending on the duration for which they are held – they are classified as large cap, mid cap or small cap equity funds. The AMC manages funds like Tata Large Cap Fund and Tata Multicap fund (an example of a diversified fund by Tata) in this segment.
Debt Fund: Tata debt funds offers protection to investors from the intense volatility of the market. These funds choose to invest in safe bets like government securities, money markets, and bonds. These offer a lower yet assured rate of return to conservative investors. Tata Liquid Fund and Tata Bond Fund are some of the debt funds that are managed by Tata Mutual Fund.
Hybrid Funds: Some investor may want the protection of debt funds but accelerated capital growth offered by equity funds. They would want the best of both worlds. For such investors, the AMC offers funds like Tata Hybrid Equity Fund. These invest in a mix of equities as well as debt instruments for dual advantage of capital appreciation with lower risk profile.
Close End Schemes: The unit capital of closed end funds are fixed. Additionally the company may sell only a specific number of units in the NFO period. Investors can look at trading these closed end funds in two ways – one is by participating in stock exchange trading, or participating in buy-back of the shares. Tata Infrastructure Tax Saving Fund and Tata Fixed Maturity Plans are some of the funds floated by AMC.
