Share Less. Save More and fulfill those little desires
Ever wondered if you could save on your tax outgo and instead surprise your wife with a brand new wardrobe or send your parents on a holiday? Is money an obstacle towards you being able to provide for these little desires of your family?
Consider Axis Long Term Equity Fund which can help you save tax up to Rs. 46,350*
per year by investing up to Rs. 1.5 lakhs per year*. It is an ELSS with a 3-year lock-in and investments under ELSS are eligible for IT exemptions under section 80C of the Income Tax Act, 1961. The money is invested in equity markets which are likely to give better returns over a period of time.
Axis Long Term Equity fund uses the 3-year lock-in window of the ELSS to provide a unique approach to equity investing. The lock-in creates a situation where both investor and the fund manager interests are aligned in looking at long term opportunities and ignoring short term noise.
The fund looks at companies that can sustainably grow profits and generate wealth over 3-4 years. This allows the fund manager to overlook short term volatility of the stock price as well as any temporary hiccups in the company’s earnings. Further the fund manager works completely on a bottom-up basis i.e. judging individual stocks purely on their prospects without trying to worry about the overall market direction or what the market benchmarks are doing. This has allowed the fund to create tremendous value for investors since its inception.
