Investment Strategy

Investments under the Call Plan would be made predominantly in call money market, overnight reverse repos in Government securities and fixed income securities with overnight maturity/ liquidity. The portfolio would be different from that of the other Plans of HDFC Cash Management Fund.
With respect to counterparty risk exposure arising out of OTC derivative and repo transactions, HDFC AMC does an ongoing credit assessment for setting appropriate counterparty limit and type of exposure the scheme can assume on all counterparties of the scheme.  Internal control mechanisms ensure adherence to these limits and type of exposures.
