Hi ,
I would like to invest 1 lac amt in Debt funds. My agent has suggested DSP BR Short-term Fund and ICICI FMP .
Is it good to invest in these funds. Would need your valuable inputs and suggestions on it.
I am already doing SIP for 5k in the below funds
HDFC top 200
Fidelity Equity
HDFc Prudence
ICICI prudential Discovery fund
As markets are really volatile now, I would like to invest in Debt funds.

    Thanks Ashal for your inputs. Agent has told only ICIC prudential FMP and not mentioned any name.

    I know in general these FMP and short term funds invest in Bonds and securities. Would need more info on FMP and short term as on what to they invest and do analysis on it.

    can you throw some light on this or any article which gives detailed info about these FMP and short term funds.

    Thanks Visa

  3. Dear Visasubu, Regarding the short term plan, HDFC HI Short Term plan is a better choice than DSPBR Short Term plan. Which FMP from ICICI Prudential AMC are you talking about?
