  • Securities investments are subject to market risks and there is no assurance or guarantee that the objectives of the Portfolio will be achieved.
  • Past performance of the Portfolio Manager does not indicate the future performance of the portfolio.
  • Investors are not being offered any guaranteed or assured return/s i.e. either of Principal or appreciation on the portfolio.
  • Investors may note that Portfolio Manager’s investment decisions may not be always profitable, as actual market movements may be at variance with anticipated trends.
  • The liquidity of the Portfolio’s investments is inherently restricted by trading volumes in the securities in which it invests.
  • The valuation of the Portfolio’s investments, may be affected generally by factors affecting securities markets, such as price and volume volatility in the capital markets, interest rates, currency exchange rates, changes in policies of the Government, taxation laws or any other appropriate authority policies and other political and economic developments which may have an adverse bearing on individual securities, a specific sector or all sectors including equity and debt markets. There will be no prior intimation or prior indication given to the Clients when the composition/ asset allocation pattern changes.
  • Trading volumes, settlement periods and transfer procedures may restrict the liquidity of the investments made by the Portfolio. Different segments of the Indian financial markets have different settlement periods and such periods may be extended significantly by unforeseen circumstances. The inability of the Portfolio to make intended securities purchases due to settlement problems could cause the Portfolio to miss certain investment opportunities. By the same rationale, the inability to sell securities held in the portfolio due to the absence of a well developed and liquid secondary market for debt securities would result, at times, in potential losses to the Portfolio, in case of a subsequent decline in the value of securities held in the Portfolio.
  • The Portfolio Manager may, considering the overall level of risk of the portfolio, invest in lower rated/ unrated securities offering higher yields. This may increase the risk of the portfolio. Such investments shall be subject to the scope of investments as laid down in the Agreement.
  • Interest Rate Risk: As with all debt securities, changes in interest rates may affect valuation of the Portfolios, as the prices of securities generally increase as interest rates decline and generally decrease as interest rates rise. Prices of long-term securities generally fluctuate more in response to interest rate changes than prices of short-term securities. Indian debt markets can be volatile leading to the possibility of price movements up or down in fixed income securities and thereby to possible movements in the valuations of Portfolios.
  • Liquidity or Marketability Risk: This refers to the ease with which a security can be sold at or near to its valuation yield-to-maturity (YTM). The primary measure of liquidity risk is the spread between the bid price and the offer price quoted by a dealer. Liquidity risk is today characteristic of the Indian fixed income market.
  • Credit Risk: Credit risk or default risk refers to the risk that an issuer of a fixed income security may default (i.e., will be unable to make timely principal and interest payments on the security). Because of this risk corporate debentures are sold at a higher yield above those offered on Government Securities which are sovereign obligations and free of credit risk. Normally, the value of a fixed income security will fluctuate depending upon the changes in the perceived level of credit risk as well as any actual event of default. The greater the credit risk, the greater the yield required for someone to be compensated for the increased risk.
  • Reinvestment Risk: This risk refers to the interest rate levels at which cash flows received from the securities under a particular Portfolio are reinvested. The additional income from reinvestment is the “interest on interest” component. The risk is that the rate at which interim cash flows can be reinvested may be lower than that originally assumed.
  • The Portfolio Manager may use various derivative products as permitted by the Regulations. Use of derivatives requires an understanding of not only the underlying instrument but also of the derivative itself. Other risks include, the risk of mispricing or improper valuation and the inability of derivatives to correlate perfectly with underlying assets, rates and indices.
  • The Portfolio Manager may use derivatives instruments like Stock Index Futures, Interest Rate Swaps, Forward Rate Agreements or other derivative instruments, as permitted under the Regulations and guidelines. Usage of derivatives will expose the Portfolio to certain risks inherent to such derivatives.
  • Risks attached with the use of derivatives - As and when the Portfolio Manager trade in the derivatives market there are risk factors and issues concerning the use of derivatives that investors should understand. Derivative products are specialized instruments that require investment techniques and risk analysis different from those associated with stocks and bonds. The use of a derivative requires an understanding not only of the underlying instrument but of the derivative itself. Derivatives require the maintenance of adequate controls to monitor the transactions entered into, the ability to assess the risk that a derivative adds to the portfolio and the ability to forecast price or interest rate movements correctly. There is the possibility that a loss may be sustained by the portfolio as a result of the failure of another party (usually referred to as the “counter party”) to comply with the terms of the derivatives contract. Other risks in using derivatives include the risk of mis pricing or improper valuation of derivatives and the inability of derivatives to correlate perfectly with underlying assets, rates and indices.
  • Thus, derivatives are highly leveraged instruments. Even a small price movement in the underlying security could have a large impact on their value. Also, the market for derivative instruments is nascent in India.
  • Any act, omission or commission of the Portfolio Manager will be solely at the risk of the Client and the Portfolio Manager will not be liable or responsible for any act, omission or commission made or failure to act save and except in cases of negligence, willful default and /or fraud on account of the Portfolio Manager and it shall be the onus of the client to prove such negligence, willful default and/ or fraud.
  • The Client undertakes all responsibilities and agrees to bear all risks arising out of refusal by a Company or Corporation for whatever reasons, to register the transfer of any of the Securities in respect of the Client’s account. The Securities which are so purchased and refused to be transferred in the name of the Client or the Portfolio Manager, by the Company or Corporation concerned, will be sold by the Portfolio Manager, at the best available market price, at the risk and responsibility of the Client concerned.
  • Except to the extent otherwise provided herein, no liability shall result to either party from delay in performance or from non-performance caused by circumstances beyond the control of the Party affected, including but not limited to act of God, fire, flood, explosion, war, theft, action or emergency declared by the Government, accident, labour trouble or shortage, inability to obtain material, power, equipment or transportation, but each of the Parties hereto shall be diligent in attempting to remove such cause or causes.
  • Past performance of the Portfolio Manager in a portfolio may or may not be sustained in the future and does not indicate the future performance of the same service in future or any other future service of the portfolio manager.
  • Prospective investors should review / study this Disclosure Document carefully and in its entirety and shall not construe the contents hereof or regard the summaries contained herein as advice relating to legal, taxation, or financial / investment matters and are advised to consult their own professional advisor(s) as to the legal, tax, financial or any other requirements or restrictions relating to the subscription, gifting, acquisition, holding, disposal (sale or conversion into money) of Portfolio and to the treatment of income (if any), capitalisation, capital gains, any distribution, and other tax consequences relevant to their portfolio, acquisition, holding, capitalisation, disposal (sale, transfer or conversion into money) of portfolio within their jurisdiction of nationality, residence, incorporation, domicile etc. or under the laws of any jurisdiction to which they or any managed funds to be used to purchase/gift portfolio of securities are subject, and also to determine possible legal, tax, financial or other consequences of subscribing / gifting, purchasing or holding portfolio of securities before making an investment.
  • Performance of the Portfolios may be impacted as a result of specific investment restrictions provided by the client.
  • The liquidity and valuation of the Portfolio’s investments due to its holdings of unlisted securities may be affected if they have to be sold prior to their target date of disinvestment.
  • The investments made by the Portfolio Manager are subject to risks arising from the investment objective, investment strategy and asset allocation.
  • Corporate debt securities are subject to the risk of an issuer’s inability to meet interest and principal payments on its debt obligations (credit risk). Debt securities may also be subject to price volatility due to factors such as changes in interest rates, general level of market liquidity and market perception of the creditworthiness of the issuer, amongst others. The Portfolio Manager will endeavor to manage credit risk through an in-house credit analysis. The Portfolio Manager may also use various hedging products from time to time to reduce the impact of undue market volatility on the portfolio.
  • As with any investment in securities, the value of the portfolio can go up or down depending on various factors that may affect the values of the investments. In addition to the factors that affect the value of individual securities, the value of the portfolio can be expected to fluctuate with movements in the broader equity and bond markets and may be influenced by factors affecting capital markets in general, such as, but not limited to, changes in interest rates, currency exchange rates, changes in governmental policies, taxation, political, economic or other developments and increased volatility in the stock and bond markets.
  • Subject to necessary approvals as may be required and within the investment objectives of the Portfolio, the Portfolio Manager may invest in overseas markets which carry a risk on account of fluctuations in foreign exchange rates, nature of securities market of the country concerned, repatriation of capital due to exchange controls and political circumstances.
  • Risk arising out of non diversification: The investment objectives of one or more of the portfolio management portfolios could result into concentration on a specific asset/asset class/sector/issuer etc., which could expose the portfolio to improper and/or undesired diversification.
  • Investors may note that Portfolio Manager’s investment advice on specific securities investments, investment strategy and asset allocation for achieving investment objectives may not be always profitable, as actual market movements may be at variance with anticipated trends.
  • The Portfolio Manager may, considering the overall level of risk of the portfolio, advice to invest in lower rated/ unrated securities offering higher yields. This may increase the risk of the portfolio. Such investments shall be subject to the scope of investments as laid down in the Agreement.
  • Securities, which are not quoted on the stock exchanges, are inherently illiquid in nature and carry a larger amount of liquidity risk, in comparison to securities that are listed on the exchanges or offer other exit options to the investor, including a put option. The Portfolio Manager may advise to invest in unlisted securities that offer attractive yields. This may however increase the risk of the portfolio. Such investments shall be subject to the scope of investments as laid down in the Agreement.
  • While securities that are listed on the stock exchange carry lower liquidity risk, the ability to sell these investments is limited by the overall trading volume on the stock exchanges. Money market securities, while fairly liquid, lack a well-developed secondary market, which may restrict the selling ability of the Portfolio(s) and may lead to the investment(s) incurring losses till the security is finally sold.
