Scheme Specific FAQs

Is this scheme suitable for me?

Parag Parikh Long Term Value Fund (PLTVF) is suitable for all investors who are willing to commit their investible surplus to the stockmarket for a period of five years or more and are seeking a mutual fund scheme which adheres to the time-tested principles of value investing. Our portfolio only includes those stocks which conform to our strict stock selection filters. Robust and disciplined processes guide our actions. We ignore factors such as market momentum, current market fancies, etc. We also steadfastly follow a buy-and-hold approach, which automatically results in a low churn ratio and consequently results in reduced transaction costs for our investors.

What is the asset allocation pattern for PLTVF?

Under normal circumstances the scheme corpus will be allocated as under:
Type of Security Minimum Allocation (% of net assets) Maximum Allocation (% of net assets) Risk Profile

Foreign Equity and equity related instruments 0 35 Medium to High Risk

Given the wide scope of securities held by these three indices, it should be inherently less volatile. Our results may differ markedly from those of the three indices in either up or down market trends.
