  1. Dear Manish, the ease of operation & comfort of existing AMC is the reason to opt from existing Eq. based AMC.

    there is as such no principle , but that ease the efforts . as such the most of liquid funds/debt funds of prominent/popular AMCs(read in which you are investing tn their eq. schemes, particularly quantum and franklin templeton) are giving almost similar returns over a period of time. it will also make easy for you if you like to switch from liquid/debt fund to your equity fund , or vice a verse..

  3. Manish says:

    Could you please elaborate a little why is this principle of investing in same AMC for liquid and debt?

    1. I can think of no specific reason except convenience. If you look at all liquid funds available, none of them have ever given negative returns over a quarter/year. So to a certain extent any liquid fund should do since returns are not important for an emergency fund.

      Just pick one which invests in safe bank-related paper. Quantum Liquid as Ashal suggested is a good fund in this regard.

    essence is better to park in a liquid /debt fund of AMC whose equity mf you are investing in regularly.

  5. Dear Manish, please park your money in Quantum Liquid fund.

    Seems like my question content got lost in some technical issue while posting :(…

    Writing it again:

    I wish to part 40% of my emergency fund in liquid fund (~2 lakhs).

    Goal is liquidity, low risk & better returns than FD.

    For the same as per my very basic research done “BSL Floating Rate ST” seems decent one.

    Based on what I read on this forum following other funds were also suggested

    hdfc cash management
    reliance liquid
    Templeton idia low duration
    Peerless short

    Let me know if I am missing some aspect and should I consider one of the above rather?

    Thanks for all the great input you all have provided in past :).
