amityadav Why not C?
Though it will be upto the PM but cant it be inlcuded in IPS for such preference as mentioned in C.
Olesya_CFA I thought so too but then this came to my mind: keeping more than 5% in cash could be a general requirement for many investment institutions. Nothing super unique about it. However tobacco is clearly something very specific for a certain type of investors. It's their personal preference. So the answer makes sense to me.
