Named as Reliance Equity Fund, the scheme will invest in the stocks of top 100 companies by market capitalisation and of the companies which are available in the derivatives segment.

For investments of Rs 2 crore and above but less than Rs 5 crore, the entry load will be Rs 1.25 per cent, while there will not be any entry load for investments of Rs 5 crore and above.
