Kotak Mutual Fund launches Kotak Consumption Fund, an opportunity to invest in country’s consumption growth story
Mumbai, October 25, 2023: Kotak Mahindra Asset Management Company Ltd (“KMAMC” / “Kotak Mutual Fund”) today announced the launch of Kotak Consumption Fund, an Open-Ended Scheme that will invest in equity, equity related securities of companies engaged in consumption and consumption related activities.

The fund will offer investors an opportunity to invest in India’s consumption potential, which is being driven by the trinity of structural, cultural and digital factors.

The fund will invest in the sectors/industries like Fast Moving Consumer Goods, Financial Services, Automobiles and Auto Components, Consumer Durables, Telecommunication, Consumer Services, Health Care, Power, Realty and Textiles etc., which form the Consumption universe based on the investment strategy of the scheme.
Nilesh Shah, Managing Director, KMAMC said, “With the launch of Kotak Consumption Fund, we are offering a window for our investors to be a part of country’s fast-evolving consumption story. It's about tapping into the shift from basic to smart - from analogue to digital, from feature phones to smartphones, and from single-brand to multi-brand retail choices.
