SBI Mutual Fund today launched its Balanced Advantage Fund (BAF), which has a one-of-a-kind withdrawal option: SWP (Automated) or SWP (Manual) (A). Under this withdrawal plan, the investor can specify a percentage withdrawal from the program every month, quarter, or year.
Most mutual fund companies allow customers to establish their SWP as a predetermined monthly amount that ignores the fund's actual value and might deplete your investment over time. When markets are trending lower, however, a percentage withdrawal will automatically decline.
New Fund Details
On the equity side, Dinesh Balachandran and Gaurav Mehta will handle the fund, while Dinesh Ahuja will manage the debt side. The New Fund Offer will run from August 12 to August 25, and it is open-ended; you can trade in the fund at any time after that.
