Market risk

The NAV of the scheme will react to the securities market movements.

The scheme may not be able to immediately sell securities.

Market Trading Risks

  • Trading in units may be Halted
  • Lack of market liquidity
  • Units of the scheme may trade at prices other than NAV
  • Regulatory risk
  • Reinvestment risk
  • Risk of substantial redemptions

Volatility Risk

The equity markets and Derivative markets are volatile and the value of securities, Derivative contracts and other instruments correlated with the equity markets may fluctuate dramatically from day to day. This volatility may cause the value of investment in the scheme to decrease.

Redemption Risk

Investors may note that even though the scheme is open-ended scheme, the scheme would ordinarily repurchase units in creation unit size.

Risk Associated with Investing in Debt Securities

  • Interest rate risk

Changes in interest rates will affect the scheme’s NAV. Debt markets, especially in developing markets like India, can be Volatile leading to the possibility of price moving up or down in fixed income securities and thereby to possible movements in the NAV.

  • Pre-payment Risk

A borrower may prepay a receivable prior to its due date. This may result in a change in the yield and tenor for the scheme.

  • Zero coupon and deferred interest bonds

The scheme may invest in zero coupon bonds and deferred interest bonds, which are debt obligations issued at a discount to their face value. Such investments experience greater volatility in the market value due to changes in interest rates than debt obligations.

  • Liquidity or Marketability Risk

This refers to the ease at which a security can be sold at or near its true value. The primary measure of liquidity risk is the spread between the bid price and the offer price quoted by a dealer. Trading volumes, settlement periods and transfer procedures may restrict the liquidity of the investments made by the scheme.

  • Credit Risk

Credit risk means that the issuer of a security may default on interest payments or even paying back the principal amount on maturity.

  • Risk of Investing in Unrated Debt Securities

It is more likely to react to developments affecting market and credit risk than are more highly rated securities, which react primarily to movements in the general level of interest rates.
