What is the Investment Objective of the Quantum Liquid Fund?
The primary investment objective of the Scheme is to provide optimal returns with low to moderate levels of risk and high liquidity through judicious investments in money market and debt instruments.
Tell me more about the Quantum Liquid Fund or QLF.
The Liquid Scheme’s basic objective is to manage the short term cash surplus
of investors and provide optimal returns with moderate levels of risk and high liquidity. Liquid Funds generate income primarily through interest accrual by investing in money market instruments like Commercial Papers, Certificate of Deposits, CBLO/ Repos and in short term debt instruments of corporates and NBFCs.
Quantum Liquid Fund - QLF
is an Open ended Liquid scheme which invests in money market and short term debt instruments. It is an ideal tool for managing surplus cash. The advantage of investing in a Liquid fund is that redemptions can be available generally on a next day (T+1 business day) basis, which means you get your money back almost the next day after you have notified us for the redemption (subject to Ceteris Paribus conditions). You can invest in liquid funds even for a day.
It is pertinent to note that Quantum Mutual Fund is India’s first and only Direct to Investor fund house and does not pay any commission whatsoever to distributors. Not paying commissions decreases the expense of most of our schemes and thereby adds to the returns of the schemes (subject to performance).
Investors looking to park their funds for few days can invest in QLF. Some attributes of QLF other than the complete transparency we offer and the convenience of Investing Online without any paperwork are;
||QLF follows disciplined research and investment process.
||QLF invests minimum of 80% of its assets in instruments which are rated as AAA or equivalents (indicating highest safety of timely payment of interest and principal) by a SEBI registered credit rating agency. This reduces the credit risk involved. Credit risk means risk of loss due to default by a borrower.
||QLF Invests only in instruments with less than 91 days maturity (short term in nature) which gives flexibility to alter the composition of the portfolio on any early warning signs.
||QTSF consists of a well balanced portfolio - typically 25 to 40 stocks, across various sectors.

Tell me more about the NAV applicability and cut-off timing of the Quantum Tax Saving Fund.
NAV applicability refers to the NAV at which a transaction is affected. A cut-off time is set by the fund and all investments or redemptions are processed at that particular NAV. This NAV is relevant if the application is received before that cut-off time on a day. A different NAV holds if received thereafter. Every Mutual fund follows standard cut-off timing depending on the scheme type which is in compliance with SEBI guidelines.
