During the year 2013, the Ceylon Financial Sector Fund grew by 11.68% as at 31st December, outperforming the BFI Sector Index by 5.78% during the same period.

Investment Rationale
The Fund is an equity fund that invests in shares of the 10 companies that comprise the Finance 10 Index, under portfolio allocations outline below. The Finance 10 Index is a sector Index, covering approximately 84% of the BFI sector market capitalisation and is reviewed quarterly by the Investment Committee with transparent selection criteria.

Index Selection Criteria
a) Selected from the BFI sector on the basis of market capitalization.  
b)
A "liquidity test" to qualify for index selection.
c)
Corporate Governance and risk management.
Risk Factors
a) Exposed to BFI sector stock market risk  
b)
Minimum Risk equity portfolio due to the absence of Trading Risk, Speculative Risk or Fund Manager Risk.
c)
Being invested in shares, this Fund carries the risk of capital appreciation as well as depreciation with fluctuations of the Finance 10 Index.
d) The fund maintains 5% in cash and exposure limits as per SEC requirements.
e) The ten companies included in the Index are well researched by analysts to unearth risks and opportunities.  
Tracking Error
The fund manager's risk is the tracking error, defined as the performance difference between the index and the funds invested in the companies. The regulatory requirement to hold 5% of funds in cash and single company exposure limit (15%) will naturally lead to a performance deviation (tracking error) between the fund and the Finance 10 Index.

You can start your investment with only Rs. 5,000/-
