BQ Big Decisions: Here’s A Cheat Sheet To Plan Debt Mutual Fund Investments
BloombergQuint’s Big Decisions podcast gets you the insights you need to make big money decisions with confidence.
One of the biggest challenges investors face is the paradox of choice.
When it comes to fixed income mutual fund schemes, this challenge is often compounded by a sheer number of factors that can govern prices of the underlying assets — bonds, both government and corporate. The country’s growth, fiscal deficit, government borrowing, retail inflation, and the direction of monetary policy can all have a bearing on the movement of bond prices.
But, according to Saurabh Bhatia, head (fixed income), DSP Investment Managers, there are a few characteristics that debt investments must have. And when an investor ensures that all these characteristics are in place, it is much easier to build a strong, stable debt portfolio.
On this BQ Big Decisions podcast, BloombergQuint spoke to Bhatia about the cheat sheet to investing into debt mutual fund schemes.
