  • How does the Trigger work?

    A Trigger will activate a transaction / alert when the event selected for has reached the value greater than/ equal to the specified particular value i.e. Trigger Point.

    Eg:  Mr. Z bought 5000 units at NAV of 11.00. If  Mr. Z wants to switch all his units when the NAV reaches 15.00, he has to keep track of the NAV daily and then send a switch request within a stipulated time period for effecting the switch at the NAV of the intended day.

    However, instead of keeping a track of the NAV everyday, Mr.ZA can set a Trigger: To switch all units when NAV is 13 or more. In this case, the AMC will keep track on behalf of Mr. Z and switch his units on the day when the NAV reaches 13 or more. Thus Trigger is useful in financial planning.

  • Can I submit trigger request after partial switch out?
    Yes, In case Trigger request is received after partial switch-out from the Original Invested amount in liquid scheme, then the said trigger will be actioned after fulfillment of the Original invested amount.

Trigger will be actioned after the original invested amount reaches Rs.30, 000/-.
