These 2 Gilt Funds, Ranked 1 By CRISIL Offered More Than 9% Returns

|

Gilt Funds are financial vehicles that focus on government securities. These securities are issued by the RBI on behalf of the government. These securities have maturities ranging from medium to long term. Because gilt mutual funds invest in the government, they are deemed safe. The interest rate on these assets is set by the RBI, making them low-risk investment alternatives. Long-term maturity schemes are volatile, which means they may be purchased and traded fast because the default risk is essentially non-existent. These funds are not subject to the risk of non-payment of principal or interest. However, there is a greater possibility of interest rate risk.
