  1. 1. Presenting<br />HDFC Prudence Fund<br />(An Open-Ended Balanced Scheme)<br />As on December 31, 2010<br />1Table of Contents<br />Definition and Positioning<br />Product Rationale and Investment Strategy<br />Portfolio Composition<br />Product Features and Asset Allocation Pattern<br />Performance and Fund Rating<br />Fund Suitability<br />Disclaimer<br />2What is a balanced fund?<br />A balanced fund is one that has a portfolio comprising debt<br />instruments, convertible securities, preference and equity shares<br />Assets are generally held in predefined proportion of debt / money market<br />securities and equities<br />Broadly, Broadly, balanced balanced funds funds target target returns returns greater greater than than debt debt schemes schemes with with lower lower<br />volatility than equity schemes<br />Balanced funds provide investors with the best of both worlds; the returns of<br />equity with the safety of debt<br />3Positioning of balanced funds<br />RETURN<br />Monthly Income Plans<br />Balanced Funds<br />Index Funds<br />Equity Funds<br />Sectoral Funds<br />RISK<br />RETURN<br />Liquid Funds<br />Income Funds<br />Gilt Funds<br />Monthly Income Plans<br />4Product Rationale<br />Hassle free investing Investors save time, effort and costs. No need to constantly monitor the portfolio<br />to maintain the target asset allocation<br />Buy low Sell High A constant asset allocation results in buying more equities when markets fall<br />sharply (selling bonds) and selling equities when markets rally sharply (buying<br />bonds)<br />Cost effective Cheaper and tax efficient alternative to maintain constant asset allocation<br />5Investment Strategy<br />In the long term, the mix between equity and debt instruments is targeted<br />between 40:75 and 60:25 respectively<br />In such times when the interest rates are high and equities are<br />expensive, investments in debt would be generally more attractive versus<br />equities and accordingly the fund would increase the debt component in the<br />portfolio<br />Similarly in times when the interest rates are low and equity valuations are<br />cheap, the fund would increase equity exposure while lowering its debt<br />component in the portfolio<br />The exact mix of the portfolio will be a function of interest<br />rates, equity valuations and outlook for growth of earnings<br />6Investment Strategy<br />(Equities)<br />Maintains an effectively diversified portfolio<br />No cap / style bias<br />Focus is on:<br />Sound quality companies<br />Companies that enjoy Leadership / near leadership position<br />Companies / businesses with superior growth prospects available at a reasonable price<br />7Investment Strategy<br />(Fixed Income)<br />The fund would invest in debt instruments such as government<br />securities, securitised debts, corporate debentures and bonds, preference<br />shares, quasi government bonds and money market instruments<br />Preference for high quality assets<br />Actively Actively managed managed debt debt portfolio portfolio based based onon interest interest rate rate outlook outlook;; investment investment<br />opportunity is assessed with regard to credit, interest rate and liquidity risk<br />The exact proportion in money market instruments will be a function of the<br />liquidity needs and the attractiveness of the debt/equity markets<br />8Managing and Controlling Risk<br />The key to building wealth in the long run is not to earn very high returns<br />occasionally, but to earn reasonable returns with higher consistency and to<br />avoid large losses that reduce wealth significantly<br />Best illustration of this strategy was the reduction in exposure to IT stocks in<br />late 1999 ahead of the ‘IT meltdown’. Subsequently in CY 2000 and CY 2001,<br />most IT stocks lost between 50%-90% in value. In the same period HDFC<br />Prudence Prudence Fund Fund lost lost around around 1414%% **<br />* Past performance may or may not be sustained in the future.

In the case of equity and hybrid funds this rating is based on the<br />weighted average monthly returns for the last 3 and 5-year periods. These ratings do not take into consideration any entry or exit load. Each category must have<br />a minimum of 10 funds for it to be rated. Effective, July 2008, an additional qualifying criteria, has been included whereby a fund with less than ` 5 crore of<br />average AUM in the past six months will not be eligible for rating.<br />Five-stars indicate that a fund is in the top 10% of its category in terms of historical risk-adjusted returns. Four stars indicate that a fund is in the next<br />22.5%, middle 35% receive three stars, the next 22.5% are assigned two stars while the bottom 10% receive one star. The number of schemes in each category<br />is mentioned in Hybrid Equity Oriented category are 25. These Fund Ratings are as on December 31, 2010. The Value Research Ratings are published in Monthly<br />Mutual Fund Performance Report and Mutual Fund Insight. The Ratings are subject to change every month. The Rating is based on primary data provided by<br />respective funds, Value Research does not guarantee the accuracy.<br />Morning Star Rating – Rating Methodology: The Morningstar fund rating methodology is based on a fund’s risk-adjusted return within a given Morningstar<br />category. For each fund with at least a three-year history, Morningstar ratings are calculated every month for the 3 year, 5 year and 10 year period. The Overall<br />Morningstar Rating for a fund is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three, five and 10 year (if applicable)<br />Morningstar Rating metrics. Within each rating period, the top 10% funds receive a five star rating, the next 22.5% earn a four star rating, the next 35% get<br />three stars, the next 22.5% receive two stars, and the bottom 10% get one star. Loads are not considered for the rating purpose. The rating is based on NAV<br />provided by respective funds.
