Investing In Debt Funds

Despite being more tax-efficient, accessible, and remunerative than fixed deposits, conservative investors are wary of debt mutual funds. Many have learned the hard way that credit ratings are not sacrosanct and that debt funds are nothing like fixed deposits. SEBI’s reclassification of mutual fund categories has helped clear the air. But products and categories are still nuanced because debt as an asset class works in cycles.

The role of fixed income is to protect capital and preserve wealth. No fixed income product is “hold to eternity”. You can no longer buy an investment and forget about it. Instead, you can choose us as an adviser and sleep better at night.

Investments For NRI in India
