Reliance Mutual Fund has launched a ‘Reliance Nivesh Lakshya Fund’, an open-ended debt scheme that aims to capture the prevailing long-term yields by investing in 25 to 30-year Government Securities (G-Sec) for attaining long-term goals of investors. It is a semi-passively managed debt fund — most of the securities would be held till maturity. The Macaulay duration of the portfolio will be maintained at greater than seven years. The fund tries to take advantage of the prevailing high yields by investing in the long-term Government of India bonds with maturities ranging from 25-30 years, which are trading at yields of 8.20-8.30 per cent levels. The scheme is expected to be an alternative to long-term FDs (the 10-year FD interest rate is 6-6.5 per cent), tax-free bonds (around 6.25 per cent), RBI taxable bonds (7.75 per cent), endowment and annuity products. The scheme will remain open for subscription until July 2.
