About Short Duration Mutual Fund

Short Duration Funds are open-ended funds with a maturity period from 15 days to 91 days. The maturity period of these funds varies depending on the maturity period of the underlying instruments. A short-duration fund is a mutual fund that mainly invests in debt securities with relatively short maturities. Short duration funds are also known as short-term bond funds due to their investment in bonds.

The investment objective of these funds is to provide a higher level of income against ultra-short duration funds or money market funds. These funds also maintain a relatively low level of interest rate risk as compared to longer-term bond funds.The fund manager parks money into a mix of government and corporate bonds, treasury bills, and other money market instruments to generate regular income for investors.

How Short Duration Fund Works?

The fund manager of Short Duration Funds invests in short-term securities and focuses on interest rate sensitivity. The underlying assets are generally fixed-income securities with relatively short maturities ranging from 15 to 91 days.

Features of Short Duration Fund

  • Lower Interest Rate Risk: In comparison to long-duration bond funds, short-duration funds are less vulnerable to changes in interest rates. Therefore, when interest rates increase, the prices of longer-term bonds typically decline more drastically than the prices of short-term bond funds.
  • Potential for Higher Returns: Short-duration funds aim to provide some level of safety and liquidity, but they also offer higher returns than money market funds or ultra-short-duration funds. This makes them attractive to investors seeking a balance between safety and yield.
  • Income Generation: The interest payments received from the underlying debt instruments are the main source of income for investors in short-duration funds. Periodic dividend payments are normally how this income is given to investors.

Advantages of Short Duration Fund

  • Higher Yield Than Money Market Funds: Short-duration funds provide higher yields as compared to money market funds or savings accounts. As a result, these funds become an attractive option for investors seeking better returns on their holdings with limited risk.
  • Lower Interest Rate Risk: Short-duration funds are less sensitive to changes in interest rates compared to longer-term bond funds. Their relatively shorter average maturity helps mitigate interest rate risk, making them a suitable choice when interest rates are expected to rise.
  • Reduced Volatility: Short-duration funds possess lower price volatility than longer-duration bond funds. However, they are not completely immune to market fluctuations, but they offer a degree of stability that can be comforting to risk-averse investors.

Risks Involved in Short Duration Funds

  • Interest Rate Risk: Short-duration funds are exposed to interest rate risk. However, these are less risky against longer-duration bond funds. If interest rates rise, the prices of existing bonds in the fund’s portfolio may fall, leading to capital losses for investors.
  • Credit Risk: Short-duration funds invest in various debt securities, including corporate bonds and other fixed-income instruments. There is a risk that the issuers of these securities may default on their interest or principal payments.
  • Liquidity Risk: Short-duration funds are generally considered liquid; there may be instances when certain bonds in the fund’s portfolio become less liquid, making it challenging for the fund manager to sell them at favourable prices.

Factors to Consider Before Investing in Short Duration Fund

  • The investor should define investment goals and time horizons before investing. The investor should ask questions such as whether they are looking for short-term income, capital preservation, or a combination of both.
  • Analyse your risk appetite and the potential for losses. Short-duration funds are relatively lower in risk compared to longer-term bond funds, but they are not entirely risk-free.
  • The investors should understand the fund’s investment strategy and review the fund’s prospectus to learn about its holdings.

Who Should Invest in Short Duration Fund?

Short duration funds are a good option for numerous investors. However, they are particularly well-suited to investors with specific financial goals, risk tolerances, and investment horizons. The below describes types of investors who may consider investing in short-duration funds:

  • Income-Oriented Investors: Short duration funds could be appealing to investors who desire consistent returns from their investments. These investments are appropriate for making money since they often offer better rates than savings accounts or money market funds.
  • Risk-Averse Investors: Short-duration funds provide a balance between safety and possible profits if you are risk-conservative and wish to lessen the impact of interest rate volatility on your assets. They are less susceptible to interest rate risk than longer-term bond funds.
  • Short- to Medium-Term Goals: Short duration funds may be an option for investors with short- to medium-term financial goals, such as saving for a child’s future education or a down payment on a home. These funds give investors a choice between generating profits and short-term capital preservation.

Taxability of Short Duration Funds

These funds may prove tax-efficient for investors in higher tax brackets as they typically generate income that qualifies for lower tax rates than ordinary income. However, the tax treatment of the short-duration fund is based on the type of gain generated by the investor.

  • Short-Term Capital Gains (STCG): If you hold your short-duration fund units for up to 3 years, any gains you make from the sale of these units are considered short-term capital gains. STCG is taxed at your applicable income tax slab rate.
  • Long-Term Capital Gains (LTCG): If you hold your short-duration fund for over 3 years, any gains are treated as long-term capital gains. LTCG on debt mutual funds are taxed at a rate of 20% after providing indexation benefits.
