The JV brings together the experiences of Aditya Birla Group in the domestic Indian market and Sun Life’s global financial services expertise. The Aditya Birla Sun Life Mutual Fund (ABSLMF) was established in India in 1994 as a result of the partnership between Aditya Birla Group and Sun Life Financial.
Today, the company is one of the leading mutual fund houses in India with an AUM (Assets under Management) of Rs. 2423 billion in India, as in the last quarter of 2018.

Investment Objective of the ABSL MNC Fund
The ABSL MNC Fund is an open-ended mutual fund growth scheme. The fund’s primary objective is capital growth for investors. It achieves this by investing in the equities of multinational companies (MNCs) via a strategic research-oriented approach.
MNCs (Multi-National Corporations) are known for performing well, even when the market conditions are bad. This is why MNCs are one of the preferred stocks for investors, thereby enjoying higher valuations in the market.
MNCs are valued higher thanks to their efficient corporate governance, strong finances, consistent growth, access to the latest technology, and efficient accounting policies. Investing in MNCs helps investors achieve long-term capital appreciation. The Aditya Birla Sun Life MNC fund helps investors enjoy significant returns and capital growth by investing in the equities of a handpicked group of MNCs.
Historically, only companies that perform exceptionally well have grown to become MNCs. Multi-national conglomerates enjoy premium status not just among investors but also consumers. These companies use their decades of experience and the power of the latest technology to expand their presence across countries.
In India, MNCs have made significant investments and developments. The developing economy of our country presents plenty of growth opportunities for MNCs. As MNCs grow their footprint in the country, investing in the stocks of well-performing MNCs will provide investors with handsome returns.
Salient Highlights of the Fund:
For Fresh Purchase – Rs. 1000 (after that in multiples of Rs.1)
Additional Purchase – Rs. 1000 (after than in multiples of Rs. 1)
Nil - For switch out/redemption of units after 365 days of allotment.
1% of the applicable NAV – For switch out/redemption of units within 365 days of allotment.
When compared to other types of businesses, multinational conglomerates (MNCs) offer better stability and use cutting-edge global technologies for businesses. Hence, MNCs offer a higher potential for growth.
The Aditya Birla Sun Life MNC Fund invests predominately in the securities of MNCs, thereby achieving long-term capital growth. The fund chooses MNCs that have a large global footprint and are present in the Indian domestic market.
When compared to other mutual fund schemes, the ABSL MNC Fund has a unique portfolio composition, thereby offering relatively stable performance at lower volatility.
This indicates the risk level of the Aditya Birla Sun Life MNC Fund. The risk level is

p The emphasis of this mutual fund scheme is in identifying MNCs that exhibit good potentials for future growth as well as sound corporate governance. The fund manager and team pick companies that have a superior track record of performance, along with long-term fundamentals and short-term opportunities.

Apart from liquidity considerations, the fund also looks at growth stocks that have the potential for generating higher returns. A small portion of the fund is invested in IPOs and other types of primary market offerings to meet fund objectives.
