Fixed Deposits: A Losing Proposition

A key question you should ask yourself – Is your investment beating inflation? Your money is worth less today than it was a few years ago, thanks to inflation. The Rs. 500 note in your pocket will be worth only Rs 150, in 20 years at about 6% inflation each year. Inflation reduces the purchasing power of your hard-earned money and portfolio. Despite elevated interest rates, traditional modes of investment such as Bank FDs are not able to keep up with inflation. It is therefore important to invest in avenues that have the potential to beat inflation.

Markets are Cyclical & there is no Consistent Winning Asset Class

Having emphasised on the need for investing into market instruments, it is observed that not all assets move in the same direction always. There have been years when equities have rewarded investors with stellar returns and at times disappointed them (like in the years 2011, 2015 and 2018). During periods where equities have generated negative or lacklustre returns, it is usually debt and gold that have done well and added stability to the portfolio. Hence, it makes more sense to follow a multi-asset approach.

3 Asset Classes, 1 Fund – A Ready Made Solution

While an equity investment is indispensable to build wealth over the long term and with potential to cope with inflation, it is also subject to drawdowns. Asset Allocation across asset classes – Equity, Debt & Gold helps to achieve good risk-adjusted returns by mitigating portfolio volatility, making it an ideal investment choice over a medium to long-term investment horizon. A Multi Asset strategy helps lower volatility than pure equity investments without compromising on the growth potential.

Time frame is December 2004 to December 2023. The period is taken from 2004 since the asset allocation weights are calculated based on normalizing the historical monthly equity and debt indicators. Given the normalization time frame used in the strategy, data availability for certain parameters beyond the time frame analyzed was a constraint.

Indexation Benefit

As you may be aware that debt funds and certain other funds, do not qualify for indexation benefit as per the new tax law effective from April 01, 2023. Indexation means recalculating the purchase price of an asset, to prevent capital gain tax. It adjusts the impact of inflation in capital gains using CII (Consumer Inflation Index) and brings down effective taxation.

The existing Quantum Multi Asset Fund falls under debt fund taxation category; hence the indexation benefit is no longer applicable for purchase after April 01, 2023. However, investors who have invested in QMAFOF, before 31st March. have been grandfathered into the previous taxation policy and will continue to benefit from indexation.
