The Edelweiss Balanced Advantage Fund is a hybrid scheme that dynamically allocates its assets between equity and debt. It was launched on 20th August 2009 by Edelweiss Mutual Fund.
The Edelweiss Balanced Advantage Fund distributes the majority of its equity investments across the finance, IT, chemicals, auto and auto ancillary, and energy sectors. Its debt investments are distributed across AAA-rated bonds and similar securities. It is managed by Bhavesh Jain, Bharat Lahoti for the equity portion, and Rahul Dedhia for the debt portion.
The scheme’s objective is to attain long-term capital appreciation with relatively lower fluctuations in value. It aims to achieve its objective by adjusting its portfolio composition between equity and debt securities based on prevailing market conditions. It endeavours to increase exposure to equities during upward-trending markets and switch to debt securities during downward-trending markets.
Under normal circumstances, the scheme allocates a minimum of 65% of its assets toward equity and equity-related instruments, with the flexibility to allocate up to 35% of its assets toward debt securities, REITs, and InvITs.
