|Good to know
What is a business cycle?
A business cycle refers to the changes in economic activities over a period of time. An economy goes through various phases such as growth, slowdown, recession and recovery. For instance, when the expansion ends, the slowdown begins. Following this, there may be a recession and then the recovery commences. This again leads to expansion or growth. Simply put, an economy goes through cyclical upward and downward trends, which are characterised as business or economic cycles.
Every business cycle offers an opportunity for investors to tailor their portfolio to benefit from these swings.
Tata Business Cycle Fund aims to take advantage of these economic trends and invest in sectors and stocks that are expected to outperform in a particular economic phase or cycle. For example, stocks of midcap and smallcap companies, emerging market equities, young growth-oriented firms and industries do well during an economic upswing. Whereas, large and stable companies, which have steady consumer demand, tend to outperform during a slowdown or recession.
The fund will incorporate these business cycle themes to make the most of the economic environment. To determine the phase of the economy, the fund manager will examine various economic and investment parameters as well as business and consumer sentiments data.
This fund is suitable for investors with a long-term horizon.
