  • Tell me more about the Quantum Long Term Equity Fund or QLTEF.

    There is a saying in the world of investing, which is "higher the risk, higher the gain". This is very significant when we speak of investing in the stock markets or Equities. Over the long term (5 years or more) Equities tends to give better returns to the investor, which also goes with the inherent risk of investing in Equities. For example over the last 10 years the BSE Sensex has given returns in the range on 18-20% (Source Bloomberg), which is probably higher than other vehicles of investment. However, we know how unpredictable the markets can be, hence sound investment strategies like a bottom-up stock selection process can be used to minimize risk.

    Quantum Long Term Equity Fund -QLTEF is an open ended equity scheme which is a diversified equity fund. By this we mean that Quantum Long Term Equity Fund invests in shares of various companies across sectors and is not a sector - specific fund. Open Ended Scheme means it is open for purchase and redemption on all business days. Investors can conveniently buy and sell units at Net Asset Value ("NAV”) based prices offering complete liquidity.

    It is pertinent to note that Quantum Mutual Fund is India’s first and only Direct to Investor fund house and does not pay any commission whatsoever to distributors. Not paying commissions decreases the expense of most of our schemes and thereby adds to the returns of the schemes (subject to performance).

    Investors with a long term time horizon and looking for diversification across shares of various sector companies can invest in Quantum Long Term Equity Fund. Some attributes of Quantum Long Term Equity Fund other than the complete transparency we offer and the convenience of Investing Online without any paperwork are;

    •     QLTEF follows disciplined research and investment process.
    •     QLTEF consists of a well balanced portfolio - typically 25 to 40 stocks, across sectors.
    •     QLTEF has a low portfolio turnover which helps in keeping the expense ratio low.
    •     QLTEF holds shares or cash when stock are overvalued - No derivatives and No hedging.
  • What is the Investment Objective of the Quantum Long Term Equity Fund?
    The investment objective of the scheme is to achieve long-term capital appreciation by investing primarily in shares of companies that will typically be included in the S&P BSE 200 Index and are in a position to benefit from the anticipated growth and development of the Indian economy and its markets.
  • Who can and cannot invest in the Quantum Long Term Equity Fund?
  • What are the entry and exit loads for the Quantum Long Term Equity Fund, why does it impose an exit load?

    Load structure for the Quantum Long Term Equity Fund is mentioned below:
    Entry Load: NIL*
    * Not Applicable (In terms of SEBI circular no. SEBI/IMD/CIR No. 4/ 168230/09 dated June 30, 2009 it has been notified that, w.e.f. August 01, 2009 there will be no entry load charged to the schemes of any Mutual Fund. )

    It should be noted that Quantum Mutual Fund has not charged Entry Load for any of its schemes since inception. We were one of the first mutual funds in India to launch schemes with no entry load, much prior to SEBI discontinuing the same.

    Exit Loads are applicable as follows:
    Repurchase/ Redemption/Switch OutExit load
    if redeemed or switched out on or before 180 days from the date of allotment
    4.00 % on the applicable NAV
    if redeemed or switched out after 180 days but on or before 365 days from the date of allotment3.00 % on the applicable NAV
    if redeemed or switched out after 365 days but on or before 545 days from the date of allotment2.00 % on the applicable NAV
    if redeemed or switched out after 545 days but on or before 730 days from the date of allotment1.00 % on the applicable NAV
    if redeemed or switched out after 730 days from the date of allotmentNil

    The scheme is intended for investors with a long term investment horizon. The exit load is imposed to discourage investors who may buy and sell frequently which can adversely impact the returns of the other investors. The exit loads are applied on a variable basis depending on the term of the investment. Investors who have stayed invested for at least 2 years will not be charged any exit load.

    The exit load in case of SIP & STP will be calculated on FIFO (First in First out) basis.
