Introduction to Model Portfolios
With Yadnya’s Model portfolios, what we are offering is making complicated investing simple.
These Model Portfolios use same asset allocation philosophy that we use for some of the big investors and its pillars are our research-
based products –
The idea is to utilize quantitative and qualitative factors observed based on our extensive research for suggesting model portfolios that make sense for individual investors like you.
Fund Selection Approach
Mutual Funds help in easy diversification and tapping on professional fund management and research expertise via an easily accessible channel. It is truly an invest and forget type of product unless and until there is a significant change in management or a market event-based trigger.
Debt Funds are much safer & less volatile than Equity. Arbitrage Funds are a good substitute of Liquid funds for investors in 30% tax bracket as they are tax efficient option for short term investing. Hybrid Funds reduce our overall downside risk during bear market and are a good option for conservative investors.
ETFs and Index funds are passive investing funds that are linked to an underlying benchmark index and provide a low-cost alternative for taking exposures in the financial market.
We have utilized our proprietary fund selection methodology - MFYadnya.In for shortlisting and adding equity, hybrid & Debt mutual funds and ETF/index funds in model portfolios.
The aim is to generate long term regular income with the current corpus with tax efficient & above inflation returns
Strategy is to invest in Debt for short term income and gradually take some Equity and other market driven allocation for medium & long-term income
Rational for this Portfolio
You’ve saved for retirement for years. Now that retirement is approaching, how can you create a regular stream of income from your savings to help pay your bills?
Or you have inherited a large sum of money and want to invest in such a way so that you can get regular income for long term. Investors do not want to take much risk with these investments and look for regular income for as long as possible. Primary objective is to get tax efficient returns and some higher than inflation returns to avoid the loss of capital.
We have assumed that you already have a separate Emergency Corpus apart from this investment and would withdraw an optimum
inflation adjusted monthly income so that your investment corpus can sustain for long term. Example: An approx. Rs. 50 Lakhs corpus can give you 7% inflation adjusted Rs 21k/month income (increasing ₹21k income by 7% every year) for 20 years with this portfolio.
We have included multiple modes of investment vehicles in this model portfolio – Fixed Deposits/Liquid Funds/Arbitrage Funds, Debt Funds, Hybrid Funds, Large Cap Funds and Gold Funds. For meeting the investment objective of regular income with tax efficient & above average inflation returns with multi-asset portfolio, looking at their long-term expected returns and risk levels of each asset class based on our long-term view of Indian economy, we suggest the strategic allocation of 50% in Liquid/Debt, 45% in Equity & 5% in Gold.
Strategic Allocation by Asset Class
Is this Model Portfolio for you?
This long term Regular Income with Growth portfolio is appropriate for a moderate risk investor who wants a long-term regular income. It is assumed that the investors have a separate Emergency Fund apart from the investment in this portfolio. They are wary of capital loss but are willing to accept periods of some market volatility in exchange for the possibility of receiving returns that outpace. We also tried to reduce the risk by hedging the portfolio with some Gold investment.
This portfolio might get an average annualized return of 8-9%. Its best yearly gain might be 12-15% and its biggest decline in a year may range from -0 to -5%.
