A Mutual Fund (also known as a Unit Trust) is made up of money pooled from multiple investors to purchase securities. It is managed by professional Investment Managers to meet an investment objective. Investors own units (or shares) which represent a part of the Mutual Fund’s portfolio holdings. Mutual Funds invest in stocks, bonds, or other securities according to each Fund’s objective. The Net Assets Value (NAV) is the price or value of one unit of a Fund

  • Professionally Managed: While diversification is important in your investments, individual investors sometimes face the challenge of high minimum investment amounts when trying to do so across multiple asset classes. Buying units in a Mutual Fund is an easy way to diversify your investments across various asset classes, geographies, and strategies
  • Affordable: Mutual Funds invest money pooled together from multiple investors. This allows to achieve diversification with lower investment amounts. With very small amounts, you can buy into a very large Mutual Fund
  • Liquid: Most Mutual Funds offer daily subscriptions and redemptions, thereby providing easy access to your invested funds.
  • Wide Range of Solutions: Different investors have different goals. Mutual Funds offer a wide array of strategies that can cater to different investors allowing them to achieve their personal financial goals
  • Fixed Income (Bond) Fund: A Fixed Income Fund invests primarily in debt instruments such as government bonds or corporate bonds that aim to provide a regular rate of return
  • Equity Fund: An Equity Fund invests primarily in stocks. The objective of an Equity Fund is generally to seek long-term capital appreciation
  • Balanced / Multi-Asset Funds: A Multi-Asset Fund generally invests in a mix of Equity and Fixed Income securities. These Funds can offer investors instant diversification across asset classes and a balanced approach to investing
  • Alternative Fund: Alternative Funds offer greater portfolio diversification using sophisticated investment instruments. As these strategies are complex in nature, they are not available to our Retail and Priority customers
  • Easy and Convenient: 24×7 access to a variety of international Mutual Funds through the SC mobile app so you can buy, sell, and track your mutual fund portfolio anytime, anywhere.
  • Interactive Fund Library: Find a fund of your choice using smart filters or select from a list of shortlisted funds that match your investment profile from Fund Select
  • Detailed Fund analysis: Access detailed fund information and performance data with factsheets, historical prices, trend charts and other indicators
  • Instant Notifications: Instant email notifications upon completion of transactions for you to keep a track of your orders
