These funds allow you to enjoy good returns and low-risk rates courtesy their significant allocation in debt funds. Market gurus believe that it is better to invest in these than to go for an equity-debt portfolio as there is no tax imposed on the debt funds in the mix. It has returns that are taxed at 15% if sold before one year, post this period a 10% tax is applicable on the gains.

Purpose: Invest in these funds instead of buying a different kind of equity-debt funds with 60-40 allocations. These funds are best to moderate your risk with a fair return in the high-risk portfolio.

What does investing in Kotak Hybrid Mutual Funds actually mean?

Suppose a mutual fund invests in ten stocks and total current market value of these stocks is 1.1 Crore. Out of this, the AMC deducts say, 0.1 Crore for operating the fund (this is known as the expense ratio). So the net value is 1 crore. Now the AMC will divide this 1 Crore into say, 10,000 parts. These parts are known as units. The cost of one unit is 1Cr/10,000 = Rs. 1000. This is known as the Net Asset Value (NAV) of the mutual fund. Suppose the AMC has set a minimum investment requirement of Rs. 500. Then if you pay Rs. 500, you will get 0.5 units of the fund. Remember that the cost of one unit is the cost when you made the purchase. Suppose after one year, the NAV has fallen to Rs. 700 per unit and you wish to exit the fund (also known as redemption), then you sell your 0.5 units back to the AMC and get 0.5 x Rs. 700 = Rs. 350 back. Yes, you invested Rs. 500 and got back Rs. 350 – a loss of 150 over a year. The point is, that you buy units at current NAV and sell units (fully or partially) at current NAV. This is what investing in mutual fund actually means.

How to invest in Kotak Mutual Funds on Groww?
