Simple Steps to Build Your 12:20:80 Portfolio


Step 1: Choose the Investing style You want to Adopt

If you are someone who wants the potential to beat the market, greater diversification or fund manager involvement, you might choose to go for active investments. On the other hand, if you prefer to keep things simple and generate returns in tandem with the benchmark index, building a portfolio of passive funds might suit you better. You get the flexibility to choose how you want to ride your investment journey. Remember that the NFO is currently on – don’t miss the chance if you want to adopt the passive approach. 

Step 2: Enter the Total Amount You Intend to Invest 

Next, enter the total investible corpus that you intend to invest. As a general rule, your investment should not be what is left over after your monthly expenses, but should be a fixed sum set aside with a specific financial goal in mind. 

Step 3: Build your Safety Block (Emergency Corpus) with Liquid Funds

Next, enter your monthly expenses and click on Calculate. We suggest that you set aside 12 months of your monthly expenses to help you tide over any uncertainties.

The tool will calculate this as Emergency Funds which forms the foundation as your portfolio. Your investment will be allocated in Quantum Liquid Fund which prioritizes safety and liquidity over returns. If you believe that you would like to have a larger backup for financial emergencies depending on your risk appetite and your financial obligations, simply change the number of months.

Step 4: Build the Portfolio Diversifying Block with Gold 

After deducting the Emergency Corpus from your indicated investible corpus, the tool will allocate the balance into Gold and Equity in the ratio of 20-80. The 20% portion allocation to gold will then be allocated to Quantum Gold Savings Fund - Gold in your portfolio helps offset risks better during periods of macroeconomic uncertainty due to the inverse relationship with equities. At any point, you can change the percentage to gold if required to suit your existing portfolio or goals better.

Step 5: Allocate the balance 80% to the Growth Block

The balance of your investible corpus i.e 80% gets diversified into long-term opportunities using a diversified equity bucket. The funds get allocated across three different equity funds - Quantum Equity Fund of Funds, (70%) Quantum India ESG Equity Fund (15%) and the Quantum Long Term Equity Value Fund (15%) with varying investing styles. 

If you choose a passive allocation, allocate 85% in the NFO - the Quantum Nifty 50 ETF Fund of Fund and initiate an SIP (Systematic Investment Plan) or lumpsum during the NFO period, and the balance of 15% in Quantum India ESG Equity Fund.

Step 6: Get an Overview of Your Suggested Allocation

Once you have entered your preferences, click on the Calculate button

You can see a quick snapshot of your suggested allocation with the flexibility to add, switch and personalize as per your investment requirements and risk appetite.

The tool also calculates the since inception returns for your suggested allocation. Through the 12:20:80 portfolio, a diversified portfolio, you get the potential to lower downside risks during periods of uncertainty. 

So, check out the asset allocation tool today and build your portfolio in just a few clicks. Personalize your investments the way you want and just focus on strengthening your investment journey to build long term goals.
