exposure to equity shares alone without a corresponding equity derivative exposure.
** Equity exposure would be completely hedged with corresponding equity derivatives; the exposure to derivatives shown in the above asset allocation tables is exposure taken against the underlying equity investments and should not be considered for calculating the total asset allocation and/or investment restrictions on the issuer. The margin money requirement for the purposes of derivative exposure may be held in the form of Term Deposits.
When adequate arbitrage opportunities are not available in the Derivative and Equity markets, the anticipated alternate asset allocation on defensive considerations would be in accordance with the allocation given below.
However, in case no arbitrage opportunity is available, then 100% of the remaining investible corpus (excluding margin for derivatives and to the extent not deployed in arbitrage opportunities in the asset allocation pattern mentioned above) will be deployed in short term debt and money market instruments with tenure not exceeding 91 days (including investments in securitized debt).
