Best LIC Hybrid Mutual Funds

Established in 20th April 1989, it is an associate company of one of India's most reputed brands LIC. LIC Mutual funds aim to create financial discipline and corporate governance and is chosen by many investors, due to it being a pioneering brand.

The motto of LIC is to create value for its investors by adopting an investing strategy that is innovative, yet stable for a dynamic environment, such as ours. It targets to cater to all segments of the society and creating an investment experience which is unparalleled.

It offers a large variety of funds, starting from equity, debt, hybrid, solution oriented and index funds. Investors of different risk appetites and investment duration can build a strong portfolio through LIC mutual funds.

If we allocate 65 to 80 percent of a fund to equity and assign remaining to debt and similar instruments, then what we get in return is a Hybrid-Equity fund. 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 LIC 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 LIC Mutual Funds on Groww?

One of the best ways to hedge against the small-cap volatility is to adopt a phased approach, also known as Systematic Investment Plan (SIP) approach. We are sure that you must be aware of SIP and its benefits. Buying in small quantity but buying regularly provides you with faster growth. On Groww.in, all transactions to and from AMC is done via BSE. When you decide to invest in a large cap mutual fund of your choice, you choose that mutual fund on the website and click ‘invest’. Following that, you are redirected to the BSE page where you make the payment. BSE then directs your money to the AMC managing your mutual fund. To be assured at your end, you can visit the individual AMC website after the payment. You would be able to see all your purchased units against your folio number.
