Will I invest in Motilal Oswal Equity Hybrid Fund NFO?
Hybrid funds are the less risky than pure equity funds due to the stability added by the debt component. This feature makes these funds hugely popular among moderately conservative investors who want to take benefit of growth in equities but also want stable returns.
We do have a lot of hybrid funds in the market with Principal, Mirae, ICICI, Reliance and HDFC fund dominating the space, however this new Motilal Oswal fund offer a few additional distinctive features such as cash flow plan, QGLP based long-term investment philosophy and experienced fund managers.
This new fund would be the best option for the conservative/moderate conservative investors who are looking to ride the equity wave with stable returns.
The question still remains – do we really a new fund in the crowded hybrid space? Why should not I go for existing top fund which offer similar risk profile and returns with proven track record?
So, I would wait for the fund to establish itself in the market and analyze the holdings before investing.
