(A open ended Equity Scheme)
NFO Opens July 30, 2014 and NFO Closes August 13, 2014
The one-of-a-kind L&T Business Cycles Fund.
The L&T Business Cycles Fund will invest in companies that are strategically placed to make the most of the economy’s business cycles. During high growth times, the portfolio can be entirely aimed at cyclical companies. On the other hand, the portfolio could entirely comprise defensive companies to generate stable returns during periods of low growth. In short, the L&T Business Cycles Fund aims to offer you the best of both worlds – heady gains and steady growth.

All economies go through “Business Cycles” or the expansion and contraction of economic activity. Investing in companies that deliver growth during the high and low waves is what the business cycle investing approach is all about. Here is the logic:
A rising market is a circle of euphoria – jobs and incomes grow, consumer spending follows suit and company revenues grow. Typically, automobiles, electronics, travel, hospitality, infrastructure, among other businesses, begin to boom. The stocks of these companies are called ‘cyclical stocks’ and they are the hallmark of rising markets.
On the other hand, when the economy is slow, consumers tighten their belts. So where are the investment opportunities? Common sense says there is no question of cutting back on basic necessities like electricity or medicines. As a result, utilities, pharmaceuticals and healthcare are defensive and they provide relatively stable returns whether the economy is up or down.
Cyclical and Defensive stocks tend to outperform all other investments.
n From 2004 to 2007, when the economy was in a growth phase, cyclical companies delivered average annual returns of over 45%.
n During the years 2008 to 2013, which included one of the worst financial crises of our times, defensive companies delivered over 16% annually.
To summarise, during the 10-year period from 2004 to 2013, a bank fixed deposit would have yielded about 8.30%^. The S&P BSE-200 delivered less than 13%. However, during the same time, a business cycle investing strategy would have delivered average annual returns of over 27%.
Best of both worlds: One fund that aims to deliver through all market cycles
Attractive investment diversifier: A well-differentiated, one-of-a-kind fund
Potential for higher alpha: Potential to grow faster than the broader market and perform better than fixed income investments
Opportunity maximiser: Well placed to benefit from economic recovery over the next few years
Long-term wealth creation: Invests in companies with quality management, strong balance sheets and good returns potential
Research coverage: Strong investment team to identify growth trends, disciplined research-based investing to capitalise on opportunities
No cap or sector bias: Will invest across companies and industries
How is the fund different from other equity funds?
Diversified Equity Funds
n Unlike a typical diversified equity fund that spreads across sectors at all times, the L&T Business Cycles Fund has the flexibility to point its entire portfolio to cyclical or defensive stocks.
n The differentiated strategy rules out short-term performance pressure versus diversified equity funds.
n The L&T Business Cycles Fund is not sector-specific as it invests across sectors. As an ‘all seasons’ fund, it has the ability to shift between sectors depending on medium-term economic or business cycle trends.
Sector Rotation Funds
n The L&T Business Cycles Fund focuses on strategically changing allocation across sectors based on medium-term economic or business cycle trends. Sector rotation funds are typically driven by factors such as short-term market movements and valuation changes.
