Investment Style & Portfolio Strategy


Riding the yield curve refers to a fixed-income strategy where investors purchase long-term bonds with a maturity date longer than their investment time horizon.

Investors then sell their bonds at the end of their time horizon, profiting from the declining yield that occurs over the life of the bond.

For example, an investor with a 3-year investment horizon may buy a 5-year bond because it has a higher yield, the investor sells the bond at the 3-year date but profits from the higher 5-year yield.

If interest rates fall and/or the yield curve shape changes to normal from the current flat yield curve shape, then riding the yield curve is considered to be a profitable strategy.


Potential Risk Class (PRC)

The PRC matrix identifies the highest amount of potential risk that a debt mutual fund can assume.

This regulation was implemented by SEBI on December 1, 2021, making it essential for fund houses to categorize all new and existing schemes under a potential risk class (PRC) matrix.
