Investment Strategy
It is proposed to invest the proceeds of the Long Term Plan in sovereign securities issued by the Central Government and/or a State Government with medium to long term maturities. 

The investment team of the AMC will study the macro economic conditions, including the political, economic environment and factors affecting Liquidity and interest rates. The AMC would use this analysis to attempt to predict the likely direction of interest rates and position the portfolio appropriately to take advantage of the same. 

The Scheme will purchase securities in the public offerings, as well as those traded in the secondary markets. On occasions, if deemed appropriate, the Scheme may also participate in auction of Government Securities. The Mutual Fund will seek to underwrite issuance of Government Securities if and when permitted by SEBI/RBI and subject to the prevailing rules and regulations specified in this respect and may also participate in their auction from time to time.
