The sub-fund aims to provide long-term total return by investing in a portfolio of Indian equities.The sub-fund invests, in normal market conditions, a minimum of 90% of its net assets in equities and equity equivalent securities of companies which are domiciled in, based in, or carry out the larger part of their business activities in, India.When making new investments or reallocating the portfolio, the sub-fund will invest directly in equities and equity equivalent securities of companies which are domiciled in India and the sub-fund will no longer increase its holdings in the Subsidiary (as defined below).
