IDFC Dynamic Bond is the only scheme among the 28 in the dynamic bond funds category that has been investing solely in the highest-rated debt instruments over the past five years. This mitigates the credit risk in the fund's portfolio, but may generate relatively lower returns.
However, an efficient duration strategy has helped the fund deliver category-beating returns across time-frames. The fund has the leeway to invest in debt securities across tenures, depending on the fund manager's view on the interest rate. In the past three years, the fund has generated a CAGR of 8 per cent.
It is suitable for investors with a medium risk profile for a time horizon of three years or more.
