SBI Balanced Advantage Fund

Equity markets are volatile by nature, they go through ups and downs as part of a long cycle. Instead of worrying about it, why not let the experts do it for you? SBI Balanced Advantage Fund is a dynamic asset allocation fund which invests in equity and debt depending on the current market conditions to balance the risk and the reward.

SBI Balanced Advantage Fund employs a strategy that invests in a mix of equity and debt based on an internally devised asset allocation framework. This framework evaluates valuations, sentiments, and earnings, which are key parameters influencing market behaviour. Through this approach, the fund manager dynamically adjusts the allocation between equity and debt, ranging from 0% to 100% in equity, depending on the collective score of these parameters. This allows for a flexible investment strategy that can adapt to changing market conditions.

How does SBI Balanced Advantage Fund work?

The fund follows a Three-tiered investment strategy which finds the right asset mix, determines
the strategy tilt and selects the stocks accordingly.

Stock/Security selection

1. Portfolios based on high conviction ideas of analyst team and Fund Manager discretion

1. Investments in high credit/sovereign portfolio to maintain liquidity.

2. Duration management to generate alpha- across the yield curve.

The portfolio is constructed in such a manner that alpha is generated through equity while it aims for stability through debt.

Quantitative Framework

investment strategy is determined using a quantitative framework which decides how we invest in terms of market capitalization, investing style- value/ growth/ quality and sector preference.

Asset Allocation Model

The asset allocation between equity and debt will be decided by the Fund Manager using various parameters such as sentiment indicator, valuations and earning drivers.


The scheme will have Equity taxation* when the allocation to equity is >=65%

* Though it is a dynamic asset allocation scheme, the endeavour will be to keep atleast 65% of the total proceeds of the fund in domestic equity & equity related instruments (based on annual average of the monthly averages of opening and closing figures) to attract equity taxation benefits as per prevailing tax laws.
