Scripbox Opinion

Neutral

Click here for top ranked funds in gilt mutual funds.

However, Scripbox does not recommend investing in gilt mutual funds.

Gilt Funds are mandated to invest a minimum of 80% of their total assets in Government Securities.

Such a strategy results in a very high credit quality of the fund.

Gilt Funds tend to take a large exposure to long dated instruments making them highly volatile when interest rate changes.We do not recommend funds in this category since we believe that the high volatility of the category is not suited for individual investors.

Scripbox does not recommend investing in the dividend option of a fund because dividends are taxable at a higher rate than withdrawals.
