Investment Strategy

The scheme seeks to generate income through a portfolio comprising money market and debt instruments.


"Liquid funds invest in bonds having maturity of up to three months. They are suitable to park the amount you have set aside to meet any emergency needs or any surplus money that you don't need for a few weeks up to a year. You can expect to earn better returns than what you would get from a bank account.

The risk of incurring a loss in these funds is negligible but they do not guarantee returns or safety of capital. Though rare, there have been few instances when liquid funds have incurred losses.

Remember, these funds are geared to deliver only marginally higher returns than your bank account. They deliver steady, but low returns and are not suitable to build wealth in the long run."
