Tax Bracket Tax Net Income (Profit)
5% 3200 28,800

Things to Consider as an Investor

1. Risk

Unlike other debt funds, the ultra-short term funds are somewhat immune to interest rate risks because of the short maturity of their underlying assets. However, as compared to liquid funds, these funds are pretty risky. The investment strategy of the fund manager may introduce credit risk when he incorporates low-credit rated securities in the expectation of an upgrade in future. Moreover, the introduction of government securities may increase the volatility of the fund more than expected.

2. Return

An investor can expect returns of around 7-9% from this fund in a stable interest rate environment. This return is moderately higher than what a liquid fund offers. However, even though these funds are fixed-income havens, they may not offer guaranteed returns. You need to look at Yield to Maturity (ytm) to understand what to expect with the investments at the time of investment.

3. Cost

Ultra short-term funds charge a fee to manage your money called an expense ratio. Till now the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) had mandated the upper limit of expense ratio to be 2.25% (might change time to time). Considering the overall returns generated by these funds as compared to liquid funds, a long-term holding period and lower expense ratio would help in recovering the money gone out by way of interest rate fluctuations.

4. Investment Horizon

Ultra short-term funds earn from the coupon of short-term instruments. The prices of these securities may change on a day-to-day basis and have a relatively longer maturity. These are much more volatile than liquid funds and a short time frame may seem inadequate to generate sufficient returns. As compared to liquid funds, you need to hold these funds for comparatively longer horizon owing to a higher average maturity of the underlying securities.

5. Financial Goals

You may use these funds for a variety of purposes. If you need to park money for a period of 3 months to a year, then these funds may come handy. Additionally, you may want these to transfer your funds to a riskier haven like Equity Funds. Put a lump sum in these funds and initiate a Systematic Transfer Plan (STP) to equity funds. You may look at them as an additional haven to be used as an emergency fund. If you need monthly income, then invest a portion of your superannuation portfolio in these and initiate a systematic withdrawal plan (SWP).

6. Taxation

Dividends of Ultra Short Term Funds in India are tax-free in the hands of the investor. The AMC deducts a Dividend Distribution Tax (DDT) on behalf of the investor before it sends the dividend to the investor. If the investor has invested in a growth fund and redeemed his/her investment within 1 year, he/she may have to pay Short Term Capital Gains Tax (STCG).
