Risk profile of the Scheme Mutual Fund investments are subject to market risks. Please read the SID carefully for details on risk factors before investment. Scheme specific risk factors are summarized below:
1. Being sovereign debt, Central Government Securities carry minimal credit risk. However, Government Securities carry risk arising from price movement in the market.
2. The NAV of the scheme’s unit, to the extent that the scheme is invested in Government Securities, will be affected by changes in the general level of interest rates. When interest rates decline, the value of a portfolio of government securities can be expected to rise.
3. Conversely, when interest rates rise, the value of a portfolio of government securities can be expected to decline.
4. Even though the government securities’ market is more liquid compared to other debt instruments, on occasions there could be difficulties transacting in the market due to extreme volatility or unusual constriction in market volumes or on occasions when an unusually large transaction has to be put through.
