Targetting investment from corporate leaders, the UTI Mutual Funds on Saturday announced launch of its new equity oriented scheme "UTI leadership Equity Fund".

The fund that would be open from January9 to January 30, UTI Asset Management Company Executive Director D S R Murthy told reporters here.

With a face value of Rs 10, the minimum initial investment would be Rs 5,000 and the scheme would come with two options--growth option and dividend option with payout and reinvestment facility, Murthy said.

He said about 65 to 100 per cent of the fund generated would be invested in equity and equity related instruments of "leaders and potential leaders" and added the scheme may also invest in debt and money market instruments.
