Top 5 HDFC Mutual Funds

1. HDFC Short Term Debt Fund

Short-term debt funds are suitable for investing your money for a period of 1 year to 3 years. You can earn higher returns than bringing a bank fixed deposit of a similar period.

The risk of loss in these funds is low in the said time frame, but they do not guarantee returns or capital security like bank deposits. There have been instances when short-term funds have suffered.

Remember, these are suitable for investing only for short periods of up to 3 years. If your objective is to build wealth in the long run, do not invest in it, nor any other short-duration fund.

2. HDFC Small Cap Fund

When you invest for seven years or longer, you can expect gains that comfortably beat the inflation rate and are higher than fixed income options.

It is a fund that invests in small companies. Compared to those investing in large companies, such funds tend to fall more when stock prices fall. Therefore, you can expect higher returns in the long term, but more severe fluctuations along the way.

Like all equity funds, you should invest only through the SIP route.

Warning: If you need to redeem your investment in less than seven years, do not invest in this or any other small-cap fund.

3. HDFC Credit Risk Fund

Credit risk funds mainly invest in corporate bonds which are below the highest rating assigned by credit rating agencies. A lower rating indicates a higher probability of default of these bonds upon repayment of investors’ funds. Therefore, these funds are among the highest risk among all types of debt funds.

However, they compensate for this additional risk with a higher return potential because these bonds offer better rates of interest than higher-rated bonds. In addition, investors can also benefit if the ratings of these bonds are upgraded later.

But like most other debt fund categories, we believe retail investors can avoid this too. In our opinion, debt funds only make sense for retail investors if they have been investing for 3 years or less. For that type of investment horizon, liquid debt funds and short-term debt funds are more suitable.

4. HDFC Corporate Bond Fund

Corporate bond funds have a narrow mandate to invest primarily in highest-class corporate bonds.

Like most other debt fund categories, we believe retail investors can avoid this as well. In our opinion, debt funds only make sense for retail investors if they have been investing for 3 years or less. For that type of investment horizon, liquid debt funds and short-term debt funds are more suitable.

5. HDFC Medium Term Debt Fund

Medium-term debt funds invest in bonds maturing in 3 to 4 year time. They aim to earn slightly better returns than inflation and bank fixed deposits of the same period. These funds have a lower risk of loss in the said time frame, but they do not guarantee returns or capital security.
