Margin of Safety (MoS) is an investing principle in which investors purchase securities only
when their market price is significantly below their intrinsic value.
TimerSTP is a tool, powered by margin of safety, that determines the right time to invest more and the time to invest less in equities, with the help of Samco's proprietary Equity Margin of Safety Index (EMOSI) indicator. It helps you invest in the markets without any emotional bias, it eliminates the stress of tracking the markets constantly and endeavors to offers a higher reward/risk ratio.Start TimerSTP Now
TimerSTP operates on Samco’s proprietary Equity Margin of Safety Index (EMOSI) indicator which is based on the margin of safety investing principle. It is represented by a range of values between 1-200 where 1 denotes the lowest margin of safety and 200 denotes the highest. EMOSI allows TimerSTP to transfer variable amounts ranging between 0.01X to 6X of base instalment via Systematic Transfer Plan (STP) approach from the source scheme to the target scheme depending upon the market levels and margin of safety.Know More About EMOSI
TimerSTP transfers variable amounts from source scheme to target scheme based on the EMOSI value ranging between 1 to 200. As EMOSI value increases TimerSTP increases the equity allocation up to 6X of the base instalment and as EMOSI value decreases it limits the equity allocation as low as 0.01X* of the base instalment.
*Up to 0.01X or Rs.100, whichever is higher.
When the markets are high EMOSI allows TimerSTP to “invest cautiously” i.e. deduct lower multiples (up to 0.01X)* of the base instalment from the source scheme, thus minimising the equity exposure. Similarly, when markets are low, TimerSTP “invests aggressively” i.e deducts higher multiples (up to 6X) of the base instalment from the source scheme and transfers it to the target scheme, ensuring maximum equity exposure.

# The TimerSTP multiplier is the multiplier applied to the base instalment amount. In case of regular 36 month and 12 month STP, the multiplier is default 1 as base amount. In case of TimerSTP, it shall be a number between 0.01 - 6. For Eg. If the base instalment amount is Rs. 100000, and the corresponding multiplier value is 0.01 on date of STP, then the amount that shall be transferred from Source Scheme to Target Scheme is Rs. 1000. If the multiplier is 6, then the amount that shall be transferred from Source Scheme to Target Scheme is Rs. 600000. The multiplier is linked to SAMCO’s proprietary Equity Margin of Safety Index which is derived from multiple factors such as Price to Earnings (PE), G-sec yields, moving average divergences and / or other fundamental and technical factors as may be determined by the AMC from time to time.

SAMCO’s Timer Systematic Transfer Plan (TimerSTP / TSTP) is a solution wherein unit holder(s) can choose to transfer variable amount(s) from ‘Source Scheme’ to the ‘Target Equity Scheme’ at pre-defined intervals. TimerSTP will invest more when the markets are attractive and below their intrinsic value, similarly invest less when the markets are high and expensive. The amount(s) of transfer to the Target Scheme will be linked to the Equity Margin of Safety Index (EMOSI) as computed by the AMC on the date of respective transfer.
An investor must maintain minimum balance/ investment of Rs. 25,000/- in the opted source scheme at the time of registration of TimerSTP.
The Base Installment Amount is the installment amount that is mentioned while registering for TimerSTP. Minimum base instalment amount is Rs 1000 and in multiples of Re 1, but this is bare minimum amount, however it is recommended to mention base installment as 1/12 of the total amount to be transferred to the Target Equity Scheme. The processing of installment amount will be based on opted date/ day of multiplier of EMOSI value in case the base computation amount is less than Rs. 100, then the installment will be considered as Rs. 100. If arrived amount is in decimals the same will be rounding off in nearest rupee. For example, if an investor has invested Rs. 120,000 in source scheme, he can mention Rs. 10,000 (1/12 of target investment in the Equity Scheme) as base installment for monthly frequency of TimerSTP.
The Multiplier is the “Number of Times” of the installment amount to be transferred to target equity scheme. It will be within the range of “0.01X” to “6X” of the base installment. For example, If Investor registered TimerSTP with the base installment of Rs. 10,000, the multiplier amount can be from Rs. 100 (0.01X multiplier) to Rs. 60,000 (6X multiplier).
The amount of transfer to the target equity scheme is based on the latest Equity Margin of Safety Index (EMOSI) levels which is a proprietary model of Samco Asset Management Pvt Limited (the AMC). However, in any case the TimerSTP instalment amount will not exceed 6x of the base instalment amount as per the multiplier selected.
Equity Margin of Safety Index (EMOSI) levels computed by the AMC is a proprietary model of Samco Asset Management Pvt Limited (the AMC). The EMOSI is derived by assigning different weights such as Price to Earnings (PE), G-sec yields, moving average divergences and / or other fundamental and technical factors as may be determined by the AMC from time to time.
The investors have option of Weekly, Monthly and Quarterly frequency for transfer of funds from the eligible source schemes to eligible target equity schemes.
In such a case the TimerSTP will be registered (the default) till December 31, 2099.
Target Amount is the maximum amount the investor wishes to transfer from the Source Scheme to the Target Equity Scheme. When the cumulative installments through the TimerSTP reaches the Target Amount, TimerSTP will automatically cease.
No. The Investors may choose (1) Target Amount or (2) No of installments or (3) End date in the form. If this information is not provided / incomplete, the TimerSTP will be registered by default till 31-Dec-2099.
|EMOSI value||Multiplier on Base Instalment amount to be transferred||EMOSI value||Multiplier on Base Instalment amount to be transferred|
Note: In case multiplier on base computation amount is less than Rs. 100, then the installment will be considered as Rs. 100. The TimerSTP transactions will be executed based on latest day EMOSI value available.
In TimerSTP, the minimum value of the installment can be 0.01X times multiplier of the base installment amount (i.e. when the margin of safety is the least) or Rs. 100 whichever is higher and can go up to 6X times multiplier of the base installment amount (i.e. when the margin of safety is the most).
Minimum number of installments in all frequencies will be 12.
Only one registration per target equity scheme in a folio would be allowed. In case of any existing registration (normal STP or TimerSTP) then new registration request shall be rejected.
Yes. Multiple TimerSTPs from the same source scheme to a different Target Equity Scheme would be allowed.
No. Only one registration per target equity scheme in a folio would be allowed. In case of any existing registration (normal STP or TimerSTP) then new registration request shall be rejected.
If the outstanding balance in the source scheme in investor’s folio is less than the amount to be transferred on the date of TimerSTP, the amount so transferred will be restricted to the balance available. In case of nil balance in the Source Scheme, TimerSTP installment for that particular due date will not be processed and TimerSTP will cease upon five consecutive unsuccessful transactions.
No, the Target Equity Scheme cannot be changed during the period. If Investor wants to change the Target Scheme, existing STP/TimerSTP to be cancel and register a new TimerSTP.
Investor can redeem existing holding from source scheme however, if the outstanding balance in the source scheme in investor’s folio is less than the amount to be transferred on the date of TimerSTP, the amount so transferred will be restricted to the balance available. In case of nil balance in the Source Scheme, TimerSTP installment for that particular due date will not be processed and TimerSTP will cease upon five consecutive unsuccessful transactions.
Investor can redeem existing holding from target scheme.
Yes, Investor can cancel TimerSTP by giving 7 (seven) business days prior request of the instalment date. The cancelation request can be submitted any of the to the Investor Service Centres.
Under Normal STP, a fixed amount is invested at the pre-defined intervals irrespective of the market conditions, whether the market is at peak or bottom.
However, under TimerSTP, a variable amount is invested will be linked to the EMOSI as computed by the AMC on the date of respective transfer.
Here's an illustration of how a transfer will be made from Source Scheme to Target Scheme:
Yes, however the registrations will done only till the date of minor attaining majority, even if the instructions may be for a period beyond that date. After attaining majority, the investor is required to re-register for TimerSTP.
No, TimerSTP will not be registered if the source scheme units are held in demat mode.
