Gilt Mutual Funds
|Home||Personal Finance||Mutual Funds||Equity|
What are Gilt funds? Why should we invest in them?
Gilt Funds are one of the safest type of mutual funds.
This is because the schemes will invest only in Government securities.
So, investors are protected from credit risk because of the Government guarantee that comes along with it.
These schemes should be preferred by risk averse and conservative investors where safety of capital is of utmost importance than return.
When ever Government needs money, it raises by issuing Government security bonds.
Each of these bonds will have a different maturity date.
