The New Fund Offer opens on February 14, 2022 and closes on February 25, 2022. The scheme will re-open for subscription and redemption on ongoing basis from March 07, 2022.

Mr. Sharwan Kumar Goyal, Head – Passive, Arbitrage & Quant Strategies, UTI AMC, is the Fund Manager for the scheme.
On the occasion, Mr. Goyal, said, “Low volatility investing aims to provide better risk adjusted returns over time with less volatility for a relatively smoother ride. Stocks with lower volatility generally tend to hold up better when markets decline rapidly.”
