Best 9 Hybrid Mutual Funds 2020

What are Hybrid Mutual funds?

Hybrid Funds invest in both debt instruments and equities, thereby catering to investors who have a balanced approach towards investing and want the best of both worlds. While the equity part provides the capital appreciation, the debt part provides income generation. The fund category was earlier known as Balanced Funds, but post the re-categorization of mutual funds by SEBI, got its new name.

This scheme aims to achieve maximum diversification and assured returns. And they do it via asset allocation, market analysis and portfolio diversification, ensuring maximum returns at minimal risk. Hybrid Mutual Funds provide higher returns than pure equity funds and also provide a cushion against extreme market turbulence on the back of the debt component.
