Decoding the Nippon India Overnight Fund
In simple words, it is a type of debt mutual fund that invests in debt and money market instruments that mature in a day. Yes, you read it right! One business day, is all you need to know the result of previous day’s investment. Interesting, isn’t it?
Do you have a lumpsum amount that needs to be temporarily parked? The reason can be creation of an emergency fund or even just to time the market. This is the fund for you. It offers you a moderate income at a relatively lower risk. Your parking window can be from one day to one month. This fund is apt for you if you are also looking at partial withdrawals.
How does it work?
As each business day starts, the fund manager would purchase securities with a maturity period of 1 day. Hence, each day the interest gets added to the NAV and new purchase happens. In effect, you are earning returns every day.
Since, the maturity period on offer is a single day, it minimizes any of the risks one might typically associate with the securities like change in interest rate or change in credit rating of the issuer etc.
