1.AMCs make a beeline for Interval Debt Funds.

AMCs would be soon filing their offer document for Interval Fund. These funds are similar to FMPs but it is operationally easy for AMCs to manage interval funds as they do not require fresh regulatory approval to continue such funds, shared an AMC official. In other words, Interval funds are like FMPs which do not require fresh permissions. Essentially it is a close-ended fund which is open for two business days during specified transaction period (STP) for subscription / redemption / switches requests from customers and again starts operating as a close ended debt fund. These funds aim to generate income through investments in debt / money market instruments and Government Securities maturing on or before the opening of the immediately following STP.
