FMP Update


Fixed Maturity Plans are good options for investors wanting to block their money for a fixed time frame. Though the returns are not assured, investors can expect a return in tune with the current interest rate scenario.

These close-ended schemes seek to generate regular returns and capital appreciation by investing in debt, government and money market securities normally maturing in line with the duration of the scheme.
