Corporate Bond Funds invest into fixed income instruments, such as, bonds, commercial papers, debentures and structured obligations, issued by companies. Given that corporate bond funds ensure capital protection, they’re considered less risky. These are a good choice for investors looking for a fix but higher income from a reliable investment avenue. The usual investment horizon is 1 – 4 years and since these funds invest in the bonds of medium to long tenure, it should be looked as a long term investment option.
