- Having both aggressive and conservative investment instincts? These top-rated hybrid mutual funds would most likely be in sync with you
- Choose from top-rated equity or debt-oriented hybrid mutual funds
Aggressive investors love to take the plunge with equity funds to rake in great returns. These investors remain unfazed by the fact that equity investments come with a high risk weightage. On the other side, conservative investors remain content with investing in debt funds that keep the money predominantly in fixed income instruments.
Between the two, a new class of investors emerges having a mix of aggression and caution. For them, hybrid funds are the most suitable because they allocate the assets in equities and fixed income instruments in different proportions to meet the investment objective.
You need to first figure out how aggressive and conservative investor you are. It’s because hybrid funds are either equity or debt-oriented. Equity-oriented funds would invest around 60%-65% in equity and the remaining in debt instruments. In contrast, debt-oriented funds would just reverse the asset allocation mix by keeping 60%-65% in debt and the remaining in equity.
While choosing a hybrid fund, don’t forget to look at the rating the fund has got. Usually, the fund gets a rating of 1-5 stars. 3 and above 5 stars are considered good and are assigned on account of good performance the fund must have delivered over the years.
