Can I make a lump sum investment in debt funds?
Yes, it is perfectly okay to invest a lump sum in debt schemes. Unlike equity mutual funds debt funds are not as volatile, hence you can park a lumpsum amount in debt funds.
On the other hand, it is advisable to stagger your investments in equity and balanced funds over a period by opting for a systematic investment plan. This would help you avoid any stress in case the markets decline sharply right after you invest.
