Best Mahindra Debt Mutual Funds

Mahindra is one of the leading brands in the country and has garnered trust of customers across the nation. Mahindra Asset Management Company Private Limited is a wholly owned subsidiary of Mahindra and Mahindra Financial Services Limited (MMFSL).

Mahindra provides various schemes across different market capitalization in various categories. It focuses mainly in the rural and semi-urban areas. The fact that Mahindra concentrates more on financially empowering masses in the rural area, makes it stand out in the mutual fund industry and it aspires to become the best financial service provider to people who live in semi-urban and rural areas.

The motto of the company is therefore unique because it not only wants to revolutionize the financial industry, it also aims at building a change within the community, by helping investors who do not hail from an urban set-up.

If you are saving for very short-term goals like a vacation or buying an automobile, then this category is ideal for gains within one year. It is also an excellent resort to park your money until you decide where to invest or spend next. Returns are taxed as per your income tax slab if sold before three years and have negligible tax post that period.

Purpose: Invest here for your short term goals like a vacation, buying a bike, jewelry or expensive gadget.

What does investing in Mahindra Debt 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 Mahindra 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.
