Reliance Mutual Fund has made the allotment of units under its further fund offer (FFO) of CPSE Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) today and there is a good news for the retail investors. Firstly, full allotment has been made to each and every successful retail applicant applying up to Rs. 2 lakh worth of these units. Though Reliance Mutual Fund has not officially announced the retail subscription numbers for this FFO, it can be safely assumed that retail subscription was less than Rs. 4,200 crore as 100% allotment has been made to all the retail applicants.
Secondly, against an application of Rs. 2 lakh, Reliance MF has allotted 7,932 units of CPSE ETF and at today’s closing price of Rs. 27.55, your investment would be valued at Rs. 2,18,526.60 i.e. an immediate gain of 9.26%. This 9.26% return includes 5% discount offered by the government to the investors of this fund offer.
You might also get some small amount credited to your bank account as refund due to allotment of FFO units in whole numbers. Balance amount on account of fractional FFO units will be refunded to your bank account linked to your demat account.
Moreover, as these units have been allotted in less than 10 working days and well before February 1, the big day on which Budget 2017 would be presented in the parliament, it has given you an opportunity to sell your units well before this big event and completely avoid the expected budget day volatility due to which some investors were reluctant to invest in this FFO.
However, if the government decides to sell its stake in some of these companies, either partially or fully, or make the managements of these companies more accountable towards their shareholders, I think there is a great scope of capital appreciation with this ETF. So, I would advise long-term investors to hold on to their investments for at least a couple of years more and reap the benefits of a rebound in the fortunes of these companies.
If you had also applied for these CPSE ETF units in this FFO, but are yet to get any allotment intimation on your mobile or e-mail, you can contact the Registrar, Karvy Computershare on 1800 3454 001 or Reliance Mutual Fund on 1800 300 11111. If I get any link to check the allotment status by entering one’s PAN number or application number or DP ID – Client ID, I’ll paste that link here in this post itself.
If you have any more info about its allotment or any query regarding CPSE ETF or this FFO, please share it here so that more and more investors get benefit out of it.
