The suitability will be a function of one’s age, investment horizon and risk appetite. Under ‘My investment plan’ there are two facilities:

Auto transfer: Under the ‘Auto Transfer’ facility, the investment plan is chosen based on the investor’s age at the time of the investment. Each investment plan corresponds to a certain age group as is explained in the table below.

Plan Age Range (in years) Risk
Aggressive Upto 40 Aggressive
Aggressive Hybrid 40 to 50 Moderate
Conservative Hybrid 50 to 60 Conservative
Conservative Above 60 Low

In this facility, the investor does not choose a plan but is allotted one based on their age at the time of investment. As the investor advances in age, the invested assets get automatically transferred to the next low risk investment plan corresponding to the investor’s age. No exit load is applicable in case of this switching of assets between plans. However, tax will be applicable as per prevailing taxation laws.

My Choice: Under the ‘My Choice’ facility, the initial investment plan chosen by the investor will continue even as the investor advances in age and crosses over to the next age low-risk age bracket. Incremental investment made will also be added to the initial investment plan. If the investor does not opt for auto transfer, then existing and incremental investments will continue in the plan chosen at the time of initial investment. Further, any number of switches are allowed between the four plans of the scheme. For eg: An investor can move from Aggressive Plan to Conservative Plan or vice versa.
