Short term funds provides relative safety of capital with growth at par with inflation and is suitable for investment objectives with duration of 1-5 years or longer.

Short Term Funds invest in debt and money market instruments such that the duration of the portfolio is between 1 to 3 years.This exposes them to higher variations when interest rates change.

The category is one of the largest categories within the Debt Segment (9% of the total assets).

We assess the credit quality of funds in this category as relatively poor.We do not recommend funds in this category since we believe that the potential incremental return is not justified by the higher credit risk and higher interest rate risk.
