Medium Duration debt funds invest in bonds maturing in 3 to 4 years' time. They aim to earn slightly better returns than inflation and bank fixed deposits of a similar duration. The risk of incurring a loss in these funds over the said time frame is low, but they do not guarantee returns or safety of capital.
We believe that retail investors who are looking to invest for 3 years or more should have at least some portion of their money in equity because of its ability to earn much higher returns. Therefore, Balanced Hybrid or Conservative Hybrid funds, which invest a part of your money in equity shares, are more suitable alternatives for an investment horizon of 3-5 years. They witness sharper ups and downs than Medium Duration debt funds but the possibility of incurring a loss is substantially reduced if you invest for 3 years and above.
