Tax Saving Fund An Addition To Your Portfolio

Posted On Wednesday, Nov 17, 2021

While managing our investments, we research & invest in different asset classes to create a robust portfolio. However, when it comes to tax saving, many of us rely on traditional instruments like NPS (National Pension Scheme), PPF (Public Provident Fund), Fixed Deposits, etc.

However, these come with a long lock-in period. A good tax-saving investment must be an investment first and a tax saver second. This is why investors have been increasingly preferring ELSS schemes to other options.

ELSS tax saving funds offer the dual benefit of tax exemption and wealth accumulation with a potential to outperform other tax saving options u/s 80 C over the long term.

What is an ELSS tax-saving mutual fund?


✓ An Equity Linked Saving Scheme (ELSS) is an open-ended tax-saving equity mutual fund that invests at least 80% of the scheme’s assets in equities and equity-related products.


✓ ELSS funds offer a tax deduction of up to Rs 150,000 under Section 80C of the Income Tax Act and come with a lock-in of 3 years, the lowest among the category of tax-saving investments.



Why QTSF has the Edge Over Other Tax Saving Options?

If you are looking for a sensibly valued portfolio offering with potential to outperform other tax saving options over the long term, you can add Quantum Tax Saving Fund to complement your Equity Portfolio. Quantum Tax Saving Fund helps to minimize the downside risk by adopting value investing style and gives you the potential to achieve your long-term goals, such as your child’s education or a dream retirement.


The Scheme has the potential to generate risk-adjusted returns over the long term and reduce downside risk across market cycles.
