Portfolio Design Update (January 24, 2022)

SEBI has set an industry-level limit of $7 BN for Mutual Funds (MFs) to invest in overseas securities & MFs & a limit of $1 billion for investment in overseas Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs). While the overseas ETF limit is still some distance away, the $7 BN limit for investments in overseas securities/MFs could get exhausted soon. Hence, on 23rd Jan 2022, SEBI advised us that DSP Global Innovation Fund of Fund (DSPGIF) should invest only in overseas ETFs until the overall limit of $7BN is raised. Therefore, DSPGIF will begin by investing 50% each into the iShares PHLX Semiconductor ETF and iShares NASDAQ 100 UCITS ETF. Eventually, the portfolio will aim to reflect our original design once the $7BN limit is enhanced. Please note this change, before you invest.

The Right Way to Invest –
Start a SIP

Investing in a theme like this has high risks of companies failing and of large & frequent drawdowns, due to the volatile nature of this space.

While the product design addresses the risk of companies failing by investing in a large number of stocks across sectors, one additional way of reducing risk while taking advantage of these drawdowns is by investing via the SIP route. Watch this video for more.

Frequently Asked Questions

Additional information you may find helpful.

A Fund of Fund is a mutual fund scheme that in turn, invests in other mutual fund schemes.

While other mutual fund schemes collect money from investors & invest the money in equity stocks or debt instruments based on their investment mandate, a fund of fund invests the collected pool of money in one or more other mutual fund schemes (either within the fund house or across other fund managers/ houses).
Investing in this scheme will come with debt taxation.

You will need to pay short-term capital gain tax according to your income tax if you redeem before 36 months. However, if you hold the investment for more than 36 months, a long-term capital gain tax of 20% will be levied, after applying the benefit of indexation.
(Indexation is used to adjust the original purchase price of an investment to reflect the effect of inflation on it. Applying indexation raises the purchase price and therefore reflects lesser real profits, which in turn effectively means a lower tax for you. With the help of indexation, you will be able to lower your long-term capital gains, which brings down your taxable income.)
While innovation, inversion, doing things faster, automation, efficiency increase all sound very exciting, they’re not easy. A particular theme might suddenly get out of flavour and even in the same theme companies might fail. For every Whatsapp, there are the BBMs, Hikes, Yahoo messengers that lost the battle eventually. For every Facebook, there are the Orkuts, Myspaces, hi5s that couldn’t succeed. For investors, this means that innovation can be a tricky theme to try to gain from.

Here's what you need to keep in mind:
Yes, based on what history tells us, innovation premiums and a subsequent outperformance compared to markets if identified and explored at the right time can become a fair expectation for investors. Why does this happen?
