Mumbai, October 5, 2015: SBI Mutual Fund, one of India’s largest mutual fund houses, today announced the launch of a unique offering in SBI Equity Opportunities Fund – Series IV, a three-year close-ended diversified equity scheme. SBI EOF Series IV would aim to invest in a well-diversified portfolio of equity and equity related securities cutting across market capitalization and sectors that would benefit from the all-round growth of the Indian economy.
SBI EOF Series IV’s uniqueness emanates from the scheme’s objective to invest in companies that participate and benefit from the India growth story on the back of its strong macro-fundamentals and investment driven approach of central government.

On the back of slowing global economies, the India growth story has been a bright spot, and with potential to grow further, India presents an attractive opportunity for investors.”
“Improving macro-economic conditions in the country, stable pro-growth government and positive sentiments of the global & domestic companies are great enablers to help fulfill the fund investment objective,” Mr. Grover added.
