The maiden offering of the company – Shriram Equity & Debt Opportunities Fund, an open ended equity oriented asset allocation fund has delivered 15.91% since inception outperforming its benchmark and sensex by a decent margin. In addition, the fund has declared two dividends in less than a year of launch translating to 13% ie Rs 1.30 per unit under dividend plan. In the recent sharp market correction, the scheme has managed the downside risk exceedingly well and demonstrated consistent performance. Among the peer group, the scheme enjoys the highest portfolio market capitalization of INR 80,000 Crore (source- Value Research).

The company has introduced a first of its kind feature – ANY DAY SIP effective August 2015, which allows the investor to choose his or her sip date any day from 1 to 30th of a month. This is a departure from the industry practice of choosing specified dates in a month targeting broader class of investors including small businessmen, entrepreneurs and traders in addition to salaried classes.
