AA+ rating means that the bonds this mutual fund will invest in will have very low credit risk.
The fund launched on January 9, 2023, will continue to accept investments till January 18, 2023. The scheme re-opens for continuous sale and repurchase within five days from the date of allotment.
The minimum subscription amount is ₹1000, and in multiples of Re 1, thereafter. This product is best suited for investors seeking optimal returns over the medium to long term. This explains why investors must consult their financial advisors to check if the product is in sync with their financial goals.
