Smart Tips to Look for in Debt Funds

1. Yield

The yield is a measure of the interest Income generated by the Bonds in the portfolio.

For instance, let's assume that a bond has a Face Value of INR 100 with an 8 percent coupon rate. This means that the investor will earn INR 8 p.a., on each bond that he invests in. As the bonds are traded in the open market, the price will fluctuate each Business Day. The interest rates rise and fall and demand for the bonds moves up and down. And this impacts the price of the bond. Let’s assume interest rates rise to 10 percent. Even then the investor will continue to earn INR 8. So to increase the yield to 10 percent, which is the current market rate of interest, the price of the bond will have to drop to INR 80.

In another instance, lets assume that the interest rates fall to 6 percent. Again, the investor will continue to earn INR 8. This time the price of the bond will have to go up to INR 133.

If we look at these assumptions, there are two aspects to it- the one is that the yield is not fixed, but fluctuates to changes in the interest rate. The second one is the price of the bond moves inversely to interest rates. It moves to maintain a level where it will attract buyers.

2. Yield to Maturity

The yield to maturity(ytm) of a debt mutual fund indicates the running yield of the fund. When comparing debt funds on the Basis of YTM, one should also look at that fact that how is the extra yield being generated. Is this at the cost of as lower portfolio quality? Investing in not so good quality instruments has its own issues. You don't want to end up investing in a Debt fund which has such bonds or securities that may Default later on. So, always look at the portfolio yield and balance it off with the credit quality.

3. Modified Duration

Modified duration provides a fair indication of a bond’s sensitivity to a change in interest rates. The higher the duration, the more volatility the bond exhibits with a change in interest rates

4. Credit Quality of Portfolio

In order to invest in Best Debt Funds, checking the credit quality of the bonds and debt securities is an essential parameter. Bonds are assigned a credit rating by various agencies based on their ability to pay the money back. A bond with AAA rating is considered to be the best credit rating and also implies a safe and secure investment. If one truly wants safety and considers this as the paramount parameter in selecting the best debt fund, then getting into a fund with very high-quality debt instruments (AAA or AA+) may be the desired option.
