AIF Offered by IIFL
The Alternative Investment Funds (AIF) concept was invented in India by IIFL Asset Management. Each of their alternative fund ventures outside the realm of traditional investing and seizes one-of-a-kind possibilities without restrictions. AIFs allow investors to venture off the beaten path and invest in assets that are out of reach for the typical investor. Commodities, pre-IPO placements, hedge funds, venture capital, and derivative contracts may boost a portfolio, reduce risk, and increase profits. AIFs can also invest in listed shares, but the structure also permits purchases of securities that are not accessible through the conventional mutual fund platform.
Various investing possibilities have been made possible by recent changes in the macroeconomic climate and the ensuing sell-off in risky assets. While their medium- and long-term basic growth forecast has not altered much, factors like currency devaluation, increased petroleum prices, and less liquidity may influence a group of firms’ near-term development. Corporation earnings should increase in light of the recent corporate tax increase.

Why Equities Now?
The markets have prevented the Mid & Small cap categories from producing any gains since 2018. Many companies in the mid-and small-cap categories have failed to realise their potential to provide returns for investors while having strong fundamentals. The divergence of returns between segments may present a fantastic chance to invest right away.
