    •        Price/Earnings Ratio relative to historical averages

    •        The relationship between Earnings Yield to Bond Yield relative to historical averages

    •        Macroeconomic factors prevailing globally, and within India

    Commenting on the fund launch, Mr. Chirag Mehta, Chief Investment Officer, Quantum AMC, said, “Number of investors in mutual funds are increasing rapidly and this fund provides these first-time investors to have a measured approach to equity markets along with diversification from gold and debt, thereby providing a rewarding and relatively smoother investment experience.”

    The Co-fund Manager, Mr. Pankaj Pathak, Sr. Fund Manager, Quantum AMC said, “The fund is launched with an intention to provide an option to fixed deposit by potentially providing better returns over the long run. The fund simplifies investment decisions with its one-stop diversified solution that invests across asset classes and enhances tax efficiency through indexation benefits. Investors in the 30% tax slab stand to benefit significantly compared to traditional fixed deposits.”
