Pune: Birla Sun Life Asset Management Company Limited, a part of Aditya Birla Financial Services Group (ABFSG), and investment manager for Birla Sun Life Mutual Fund (BSLMF), announced the launch of the Birla Sun Life Emerging Leaders Fund – Series 7, a close-ended Equity Scheme with a tenure of 3.5 years that seeks to invest in equity and equity-related securities of companies in the small and mid-cap segment that have a potential to appreciate in the long run. The primary objective of the scheme is to generate long-term capital appreciation by investing predominantly in equity and equity related securities of such companies.
Speaking on the launch of the scheme, A. Balasubramanian, CEO, Birla Sun Life Asset Management Company Limited said, “India’s macro outlook remains constructive and more resilient compared to other markets. Steps taken by the RBI and Government of India are growth positive, and valuations are reasonable. As a fund house, we see potential for value picks in small, and mid-caps given the concentration of domestic economy inclined sectors in that segment. Our NFO seeks to use a bottom up investment approach and focus on stock picking to drive alpha from a small and midcap focused, concentrated portfolio. This would be a good opportunity for investors to make the most of this growth phase over the 3.5-year horizon.”
Birla Sun Life Emerging Leaders Fund – Series 7 aims to help investors grow their wealth through the success of select small and mid-cap companies, which are identified after a very thorough, research-oriented portfolio selection process. The corpus of the Scheme will be primarily invested in equity and equity related securities of the companies in the small and midcap segment that have a potential to appreciate in the long run. The endeavor of the Investment Manager will be to pick stocks which could become potential leaders in their respective fields in the future. The investment emphasis of the scheme would be on identifying companies with sound corporate managements and good prospects of future growth. The Scheme will select stocks from within the investment universe based on its internal analysis based on the following criteria: visionary and trustworthy management with established track record, significant Business presence in the area of their operations, prospects for future growth and scalability and financial discipline and returns as measured by ratios like Return on Investment (ROI) and Return on Equity (ROE), and Valuations in relations to broad market and expected growth in earnings
