Performance

Suitable for

1. Long term capital growth.
2. Investment in equity and equity related securities including equity derivatives as well as Debt/Money Market securities through a systematic allocation of Funds between Equity and Debt on the basis of the Price Earnings Ratio of Nifty 50.

Investment Objective

The primary objective of the scheme is to seek to generate long term capital appreciation with relatively lower volatility through systematic allocation of funds into equity; and in debt/money market instruments for defensive purposes. The scheme will decide on allocation of funds into equity assets based on equity market Price Earnings Ratio (PE Ratio) levels. When the markets become expensive in terms of 'Price to Earnings' Ratio; the scheme will reduce its allocation to equities and move assets into cash future arbitrage/equity derivatives, debt and/or money market instruments and vice versa.

WHY INVEST IN Principal Balanced Advantage Fund?

• The fund dynamically switches between equity and fixed income instruments at a predefined interval; thus, reducing market related risk.
• It keeps away the emotional/sentimental investing.
• The fund invests based on a pre-defined rules based asset allocation model, which is based on month-end trailing Price to Earnings (PE) ratio of the Nifty 50.
• The fund provides stable growth with low volatility hence lesser risky as compared to equity funds. Ideal investment option for first time investors.
