With India’s economic outlook improving post covid-19, the mutual fund houses have been launching a slew of schemes across sectors and asset classes to capture the growing interest of investors in the stock market.
On Thursday, Nippon India Mutual Fund announced the launch of Nippon India Nifty SDL plus G-Sec June 2029 Maturity 70:30 Index Fund, an open-ended target maturity index fund, investing primarily in government securities (G-Secs) and state development loans (SDL).
The NFO opens on February 6 and closes on February 14, 2023. The scheme will track the Nifty SDL plus G-Sec Index for performance, subject to tracking errors.
In October last year, Mirae Asset AMC launched two new target maturity index funds: Mirae Asset Nifty AAA PSU Bond Plus SDL April 2026 50:50 Index Fund and Mirae Asset CRISIL IBX Gilt Index – April 2033 Index Fund. Both these open-ended plans seek to capitalise on the emerging opportunities from the high interest rate environment. However, they have high interest rate risk and relatively low credit risk.
