In December 2022, Tata AIA launched the Emerging Opportunities Fund, which invests in mid-cap companies and emerging market leaders with the potential to generate significant future growth. The investment objective of the Fund is to generate capital appreciation in the long term by investing in a portfolio of stocks that offer opportunities in the mid-cap space and emerging leaders in the new age sectors offering significant long-term wealth creation along with insurance benefits.  The fund can invest up to 30% of the portfolio in equity and equity-related instruments falling outside the mid-cap range.

In March 2023, Tata AIA launched the Sustainability Equity Fund which aims to generate capital appreciation in the long term by investing in companies that adopt sustainable or Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) friendly practices. The fund invests 80-100% in equity and equity-related instruments following ESG criteria, and up to 20% in other equities or debt or money market instruments. 

In the same month, the Company also launched Dynamic Advantage Fund. The fund seeks to generate superior and steady returns by dynamically allocating the investment corpus between Equity and Debt depending upon market conditions. Investors can thus benefit from the growth potential of equity while benefiting from the downside protection that debt funds’ investments offer. As a result, they don’t need to track the markets and rebalance their portfolios manually, a difficult task given the sharp and regular market movements.

In July 2023, the Company launched its first dedicated Small-Cap fund, the Small Cap Discovery Fund. The fund offers policyholders the opportunity to generate capital appreciation in the long term by investing in small-cap stocks. 

The robust economic growth of India, despite global uncertainty, offers stability and attractive investment opportunities. Investment Linked Plans (ILPs) offered by Tata AIA such as Param Rakshak Solutions or Pro-fit allow policyholders the opportunity to invest in a variety of sectors that are likely to benefit from the country’s robust economic growth. In addition, consumers have the security of life insurance cover, which enables them to live their lives Fikar-free and be Har Waqt Ke Liye Taiyaar.
