Scripbox Opinion

Neutral

Click here for top ranked funds in arbitrage mutual funds.

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

Arbitrage Funds are designed to take advantage of small differences in prices of securities between the cash and derivatives markets. Funds in this category deploy different strategies making assessment of each fund a unique exercise. This category has a limited number of funds with a sufficiently long history. These funds are recommended as a tax-efficient alternative to debt funds but the effective tax differential is too small to provide a meaningful benefit to regular consumers who are better off investing in debt funds rather than a complex instrument.
