Investment Strategy

The scheme is a dedicated gilt scheme which seeks to generate reasonable returns with investments in government securities, securities guaranteed by GoI with medium to long term residual maturities.

Suitability

"This is a fund that invests mainly in bonds issued by the government of India. These bonds do not carry any risk of default since the repayment of investors' money is backed by the government. But they are prone to sharp ups and downs because of changes in interest rates.

However, retail investors can avoid these funds altogether. There are far too many kinds of debt funds with a highly nuanced classification based on the type or duration of bonds they can invest in. We believe that so many fund categories add to complexity which is easily avoidable. Retail investors can simply invest in Liquid funds for an investment horizon of up to one year and Short Duration funds for the fixed income allocation (which should be 100 per cent for an investment horizon of up to three years) in their longer-term portfolios."
