जय हिंद – जय जवान – HDFC Defence Fund – Part II

If you have not invested yet; it is never too late to talk to my team. #AdvisorZarooriHai is #aPromiseOfPerformance. म्यूचुअल फंड सही है

Growth of the Defence Sector is ineluctable. It is not just a politically correct statement, but also has vibes of robust economic activity. Sustainable economy of a country is in her ability to defend herself against the threats that can destabilise her. Don’t you agree with me that India should have an Armed Forces second to none?

When I speak to Flag Officers of the Armed Forces, I get a feeling that Indian Security Forces under their Command are growing broader, deeper and higher with state-of-the-art technological sophistication. I feel proud to manage their wealth and learn from them.

Let me share some interesting details about how the Defence Sector got a Union Budget based booster dose in the last decade.

The Defence Budget Allocation from 2011 to 2021
FY 2011-12: ₹1.64 trillionFY 2012-13: ₹1.93 trillionFY 2013-14: ₹2.04 trillion
FY 2014-15: ₹2.29 trillionFY 2015-16: ₹2.46 trillionFY 2016-17: ₹2.58 trillion
FY 2017-18: ₹2.74 trillionFY 2018-19: ₹2.95 trillionFY 2019-20: ₹3.18 trillion
FY 2020-21: ₹3.37 trillionFind yourself FY2021-22Find out FY2022-23 too

Now you must have found the reason why I would unequivocally bet my last rupee on this fund.

This budgetary allocation is majorly categorized in to 2. Revenue Expenditure and Capital Expenditure. Revenue Expenditure includes expenses related to personnel salaries, pensions, maintenance of equipment, operational expenses, and other day-to-day costs of running the defense establishment. This is not our focus.

Capital Expenditure covers the allocation for modernization and procurement of new defense equipment, including aircraft, ships, tanks, missiles, and other weapon systems. It also includes investments in Defense Research and Development. This is the field where money is. Hence, my bullish stand on the Fund and its prospects of generating returns in the medium term.

I want you all to consider this Fund in your Portfolio with a Lump Sum (₹50,000 to ₹2,00,000) and SIP (₹2000 to ₹5000) for a period of 3 – 5 years. Minimum Investment is ₹100, both SIP and Lump Sum.

(मैं चाहता हूं कि आप सभी अपने पोर्टफोलियो में इस फंड पर एकमुश्त राशि (₹ 50,000 से ₹ 2,00,000) और एसआईपी (₹ 2000 से ₹ 5000) के साथ 3 – 5 साल की अवधि के लिए विचार करें। न्यूनतम निवेश ₹ 100 है, एसआईपी और एकमुश्त दोनों।)

Let me further zoom in on to those areas where our money will be invested for a handsome return on it.

1. Missiles: India has developed and manufactures a range of missiles, such as the Agni series of ballistic missiles, Prithvi ballistic missiles, Akash surface-to-air missiles, and BrahMos supersonic cruise missiles.

2. Naval Ships: India has a robust shipbuilding industry that manufactures naval vessels. These include Shivalik-class frigates, Kolkata-class destroyers, corvettes, Scorpene-class submarines, and offshore patrol vessels.
3. Aircraft: India manufactures various aircraft, including the HAL Tejas, an indigenous lightweight multirole fighter aircraft. Additionally, there are efforts to develop advanced unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and combat drones.
4. Armored Vehicles: India manufactures various armored vehicles, including tanks, infantry fighting vehicles (IFVs), and armored personnel carriers (APCs). The Arjun main battle tank and the BMP-2 IFV are examples of indigenously manufactured armored vehicles.
5. Small Arms: India manufactures a range of small arms, including rifles, carbines, machine guns, and pistols. The INSAS rifle and the Ghatak sniper rifle are examples of domestically produced small arms.
6. Radars and Electronics: India has made significant progress in developing and manufacturing radars and electronic systems for defense purposes. This includes surveillance radars, airborne early warning and control systems, communication systems, and electronic warfare systems.

It is important to note that the indigenization efforts in defense manufacturing are an ongoing process, and the list of indigenously manufactured items continues to grow. The government of India has been promoting initiatives like “Make in India” and “Atmanirbhar Bharat” to encourage domestic defense production and reduce dependence on imports.
