Unlocking the Potential of Alternative Investment Funds (AIFs)

Alternative Investment Funds (AIFs) represent a dynamic investment avenue, allowing investors to pool funds for ventures in private equity, real estate, and hedge funds. With their ability to customise investment strategies and raise resources flexibly, AIFs present a viable option for those looking to invest in non-traditional assets like private equity and real estate. Moreover, the substantial corpus generated through AIFs enhances the potential for significant investment returns. The Minimum Investment amount for AIF is Rs 1 Crore.

Key Advantages of Investing in Alternative Investment Funds:

  • Customisation: AIFs are renowned for their adaptability. They can be specifically structured and designed to align with various investment strategies. This could range from focusing on a particular sector to diversifying across multiple asset classes.

  • Flexibility in Raising Resources: One of the standout features of AIFs is their ability to attract a wide range of investors. This includes domestic and foreign investors, as well as Non-Resident Indians (NRIs), making them a versatile investment tool.

  • Large Investment Corpus: Functioning similarly to mutual funds, AIFs pool capital from various sources. This pooling strategy results in a significant corpus, which is instrumental in achieving targeted investment objectives.

Difference between PMS & AIF

Pooling of Funds In PMS, there is no pooling of investor funds. A separate Demat account needs to be created for every independent PMS investor Whereas in the case of AIF, pooling of funds is a necessity.
Minimum Investment RS 50 Lacs Rs 1 crore
Minimum Corpus PMS requires no corpus amount For AIFs, corpus needs to be a minimum of Rs. 20 crore. For angel funds, the requirement is lower, at Rs. 10 crore.
Lock in Period PMS investors have the choice to withdraw funds at any point in time. (Exit charges might be applicable) Close-ended units in AIFs have a lock-in period to which they must adhere.
Sponsor/ Manager Contribution While PMS has no specific requirements on Manager contribution. AIFs require managers to have continued interest. In the case of Category I and II of AIFs, managers should hold at least 2.5% of the corpus, or, Rs. 5 crores, whichever is lower. For Category III AIFs, a manager should hold at least 5% of the corpus, or, Rs. 10 crores, whichever is lower
