Banking and PSU debt funds invest in instruments issued by banks, such as bonds and certificate of deposits and debt papers of PSU companies. These funds make returns from the interest accrued on papers as well as price appreciation on the PSU bonds during downward rate cycles. Average maturities for these funds change based on interest rate cycles. These funds typically carry low credit risk as they restrict themselves to PSU companies and banks.
These funds suit any investor with investment horizons above 3 years. Some funds may be riskier than others, so a check on portfolio will be prudent.
