Choose a diversified equity basket to Navigate through market ups and downs

Even within your equity basket, it is important to diversify the equity component of your portfolio across different market caps, themes, and investment styles. The impact of the market cycles is not consistent across equity investments; hence a diversified equity basket helps safeguard your investments while capturing opportunities of the broader market.

Invest in long-term opportunities in a diversified equity basket comprising of just 3 funds –

Quantum Equity Fund of Funds (QEFOF) 70% - With just 1 Fund, you get access to a diversified basket comprising of 5-10 third party-equity funds carefully chosen after qualitative and quantitative research and a minimum 5 years track record.

Now that you have Equity covered, to build a truly weather-proof portfolio, Quantum’s 12:20:80 Asset Allocation Strategy also emphasizes importance of debt and gold.

Debt particularly a liquid fund scheme offers liquidity serving as the foundation of your portfolio for emergencies. Set aside safe money equivalent to 12 months of monthly expenses.

Gold helps balance your portfolio and helps reduce downside risks during periods of macroeconomic stress, as it generally has an inverse relationship with Equities.
