The scheme aims to generate capital appreciation and income by predominantly investing in arbitrage opportunities in the cash and the derivative segments of the equity markets and the arbitrage opportunities available within the derivative segment and by investing the balance in debt and money market instruments.

Arbitrage funds invest in equity shares and derivatives and earn their returns through price differential between a stock and its futures. By investing in these funds, you can expect to earn better returns than what you would get from a bank account.

Arbitrage funds keep their equity investments fully hedged, which basically means that their returns are not impacted by the day-to-day ups and downs of the stock market. The risk of incurring a loss in these funds is low but they do not guarantee returns or safety of capital.

Retail investors can avoid these funds altogether. We believe thatliquid fundsare a better alternative with a somewhat similar risk-return payoff but better liquidity.

If the mutual fund units are sold after 3 years from the date of investment, gains are taxed at the rate of 20% after providing the benefit of inflation indexation.

If the mutual units are sold within 3 years from the date of investment, entire amount of gain is added to the investors income and taxed according to the applicable slab rate.

No tax is to be paid as long as you continue to hold the units.

Dividends paid by the mutual fund scheme are taxed at the rate of 25% (effectively 29.12%, including surcharge and cess). This is known as Dividend Distribution Tax (DDT). Though the investor does not pay this tax directly, it is deducted from the dividend income before passing on to the investor.

The Risk Measures have been calculated using calendar month returns for the last three years.
