I invested Rs. 10,000 on 1st May in HDFC Balanced Fund. On 1st June, it got switched to HDFC Hybrid Equity Fund. But it shows only 9,798 invested value in HDFC Hybrid Equity Fund.

Good observation but rest assured you haven’t lost any money due to the merger.

Actually switch is like selling one fund and buying another. Let me explain with your fund.

So in last 1 month this fund lost 2% (Rs. 200).

Invest in direct mutual funds

  • Enjoy 0% commission
  • SIP starting at ₹500

On 1st Jun, Switch happened and all units were redeemed from HDFC Balanced and money was invested in HDFC Hybrid Equity Fund.

So now if you look at from HDFC Hybrid Equity Fund, It only got Rs. 9,798 from you. Hence, it shows Rs. 9,798 as the invested amount.

This always happens when there is merger on schemes.
