6 Best Performing SIPs To Consider From Equity Savings Fund

|

Equity Savings Funds are a type of hybrid mutual fund that invests in stocks, bonds, and arbitrage possibilities to achieve consistent returns. These funds must invest at least 65 percent of their assets in equities and equity-related securities (including arbitrage) and 10 percent in debt.

 

Mutual Funds in the hybrid category include equity savings funds. This is the most recent generation of Asset Allocation mutual funds, which debuted in late 2014. Arbitrage, equity, and debt are all investments made by equity savings funds.

Fund managers seek to profit from the price disparity between the cash and derivative segments of the equities market by investing in arbitrage opportunities. When opposed to Aggressive Hybrid Funds and pure equity schemes, where the equity part is mainly unhedged, the Equity Savings Fund is less volatile because of this distinction. Here are six best-performing SIP funds to consider for investing.

Who should consider investing in Equity Savings Funds?

Who should consider investing in Equity Savings Funds?

Equity Savings Funds are handled similarly to equity-oriented balanced funds, with equities up to 65 percent of the portfolio. The sole difference between balanced funds and equity savings funds is that a portion of the equity allocation may be hedged using derivatives, thus the overall equity exposure may not reflect the underlying risk profile of the fund.

These funds are ideal for investors who want equity exposure but don't have the time to commit to a long-term investment strategy. Unlike other equity investments, these are low-risk funds that are meant to bear specified returns. Furthermore, despite the fact that they are not required to, few of these funds seek to offer monthly dividend income to investors.
