First a short introduction about MOVI Index.  It is maintained and updated by IISL for Motilal Oswal. It is in existence since 1st January 1999.  From the above, it can be seen that if MOVI is below 70, fund manager will invest 100% of funds in Equity.  If it is at 95, the investment will be 70% in equities and 30% in debt.  When MOVI moves above 130, the equity exposure as per MOVI  will be 0.  Note that in the last scenario, the fund manager has 30% Long only equity exposure.  35% each is allocated to Equity Derivatives and Debt.

What is MOSt Focused Dynamic Equity Mutual Fund Scheme?

It a scheme to switch investments between equity, debt and equity derivatives based on MOVI index.  Re-balancing of portfolio is is done every fortnight and a day before F&O Expiry on stock exchanges.  MOVI is calculated taking into account Price/Earnings (P/E), Price/Book(P/B) and Dividend yield of Nifty 50 Index.  So when valuations appear higher as per MOVI, allocation to equity is less and vice versa.

Why to invest MOSt Focused Dynamic Equity Mutual Fund?

The primary reason is it takes out emotions from investing.  The MOVI index is maintained by IISL, a third party and values are updated on Motilal Oswal website on a daily basis.  Dynamic Asset Allocation helps to generate reasonable returns even in volatile markets. It helps to generate superior returns during volatile markets too with less volatility.  It offers transparency as NIFTY MOVI values are published on the MOAMC website on a daily basis.


As can be seen in the above example, Nifty index gave 12.73% return.  The same rebalanced as per MOVI values gave a return of 13.34%.  The difference of less than a percent appears too small.  But notice the Standard deviation which shows the volatility.  It is almost 40% less compared to non re-balanced index.
