All investments in debt funds are subject to various types of risks including credit risk, interest rate risk, liquidity risk etc. Some fixed income schemes may have a higher concentration to securities rated below AA and therefore may be exposed to relatively higher risk of downgrade or default and the associated volatility in prices which could impact NAV of the scheme. Credit rating issued by SEBI registered entities is an opinion of the rating agency and should not be considered as an assurance of repayment by issuer. There is no assurance or guarantee of principal or returns in any of the mutual fund scheme.
