The intended asset allocation reads as: 80 - 100 per cent in equity, 0 - 20 per cent in debt and money market instruments, 0 - 20 per cent in securitized debt instruments. There are no entry or exit loads applicable. Expenses will be amortised over a period of ten years, in case an investor exits before maturity the AMC will recover the balance proportionate unamortised issue expenses.
