Fixed Maturity Plans, as the name suggests, are funds that have a fixed tenure which can vary from 3 months to 5 years or even more. Upon the completion of the stated tenure, the fund is wound up and investors' money is returned to them along with accumulated gains. Therefore, they are similar to bank fixed deposits except that they do not offer guaranteed returns even though they aim to better what an FD can fetch.
If you are looking to invest for a defined tenure during which you are sure you will not need to redeem your money, you may consider investing in an FMP of a matching duration. But avoid them if your investment horizon is more than 3 years. 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. That makes FMPs unsuitable.
