The target stocks are companies in the consumption space like consumer durables and non-durables, retail, auto, airlines, commerce, hospitality industry, entertainment, and media to provide a wide berth. Since the asset allocation is in stocks, the returns are dependent on market volatility, therefore carry a high risk. 

Brief Introduction of the Fund

Investors staying invested in the SBI Consumption Opportunities Fund will likely reap a handsome harvest for the long term. The asset allocation pattern in the portfolio reveals nearly 97.38% in consumption sector stocks, including derivatives and foreign securities. It comprises 28.13% large-cap, 23.70% in midcap, and 33.56% in small-cap equities. 

The Fund Managers ensure the right blend of diversification to ensure higher yields beating inflation. Therefore, the remaining assets are allocated in various instruments like 0.03% in low-risk Debt Securities. The scheme thus suits investors who are not risk-averse and have long time horizons for capital appreciation to fulfil their financial goals.

Benefits of SBI Consumption Opportunities Fund

The scheme’s primary aim is to help investors reap higher yields in the long term by a reasonable allocation of assets in company stocks in the consumption space. It suits investors conversant with the macro trends and willing to bet on selective stocks for higher returns in the long-term horizon.

The benefits accrued from the SBI Consumption Opportunities Fund are:

  • Convenience: The investor can conveniently invest small sums in the Fund, starting from Rs.5000, other than SIP, starting at Rs.500. The SIP mode further allows flexibility to choose various frequencies, with altered minimum investment limits. 
  • Liquidity: The SBI Consumption Opportunities Fund is an open-ended equity scheme, meaning the AMC freely repurchases it on any business day at the prevailing NAV. 

The redemption can be requested online at the AMC portal or the Distributor’s office. As per SEBI rules, redemption proceeds must be dispatched within ten business days, or the AMC must pay an interest of 15% per annum for the period of delay. 

  • Taxation: The earnings in the funds upon redemption are subject to invite Capital Gains Tax as per extant laws. It is implied that there is no taxation if units in the Growth Plan are not sold. On the other hand, dividends are added to the investor’s income for taxation at the applicable tax slab rate. Dividend above Rs.5000 invites TDS at 10%.
