Â The National Stock Exchange plans to introduce a ‘Corporate Debt Exchange Traded Fund (ETF)’ in this calendar year. ETFs are essentially index funds that are listed and traded on exchanges. In this sense, an ETF is a basket of stocks or assets such as gold or even money market instruments. Its trading value is based on the net asset value of the underlying assets that it represents.
According to a source, “We believe that exchange traded funds on corporate debt can help in bringing more liquidity and depth in the corporate bond market. Investors will be able to invest in a basket of corporate bonds, getting thereby the benefit of a portfolio for investment”.

Â In the current challenging market scenario, AMCs have had to think out of the box to make their schemes popular. DSP Blackrock Mutual Fund and Reliance Mutual Fund have both launched Dual Advantage Fund (FMP) where 80 percent of the investment is locked in debt securities and 20 percent is invested in equity and equity related options premium.
The unique feature of this product is that it gives the investor the potential to profit from the ‘options market’ while keeping the investment stable. Being a FMP, the product is a close-ended scheme with a lock-in period of 3 years. “The important thing about such NFOs is the time of launch. I feel it is a good time when such capital protection products have been launched and there is a rising demand among the investors to buy such product”, said Mukesh Dedhia, Mumbai based IFA.
