HDFC Balanced Advantage Fund employs a dynamic investment strategy, actively managing allocations between equity and debt instruments. The approach to equity investments is guided by a broad framework that primarily considers market valuations, including the trailing twelve-month Price to Earnings Ratio of NIFTY 50 and the Earnings Yield/G-Sec Yield Ratio. The fixed income strategy includes diversification across credits, asset types, and tenures, with duration adjusted based on interest rate views. The credit risk is mitigated by prioritizing Safety, Liquidity, and Returns (SLR).
