Understanding the DSP Multi Asset Allocation Fund

Why consider investing in DSP Multi Asset Allocation Fund?

Diversifies your

This fund invests in a mix of assets such as equity/equity related securities, debt/ money market instruments, commodities such as Gold ETF, exchange traded commodity derivatives and overseas securities, some of which have relatively low or no correlations with each other. This strategy aims to help reduce the impact of poor performance and volatility in any single asset class within your overall portfolio.

Provides you with the benefit of indexation

When you invest in assets separately, you also pay separate taxes on each of them. This can lead to higher taxes if you churn more frequently. However, by mixing assets in a structured fund, it allows you to get international equities, debt and gold allocations taxed at lower rates along with the benefit of indexation.

Offers you potentially better risk-adjusted returns

Investing in a multi-asset allocation strategy gives you the opportunity to get equity-like returns but with about half the volatility. Over the last 23 years, domestic stocks (Nifty 50 TRI) gave an annual return of 12.8% with the standard deviation of 22%, whereas a multi-asset approach achieved a 12.2% return with much lower standard deviation of 12%.1

Keeps the draw-downs low

The diversified nature of mixed assets aims to protect the downsides in the portfolio in times of market falls. For instance, during the 2008 financial crisis, domestic equities experienced a drawdown of ~60%, whereas the multi-asset allocation saw a drawdown of only ~30%.2

Where exactly does it invest?

DSP Multi Asset Allocation Fund invests in domestic equities, international equities, debt/money market instruments, commodity ETFs, Exchange Traded Commodity Derivatives (ETCDs), Units of REITs & InVITs following a quantitative model.
