About Kotak Low Duration Fund Direct Plan-Growth

The Kotak Low Duration Fund Direct Plan-Growth is an open-ended debt mutual fund scheme offered by Kotak Mahindra Mutual Fund. The fund is under the category of low-duration funds. It aims to give potentially fairly reasonable returns while holding low-interest rate risks by investing in a well-diversified portfolio of low-duration debt and money market instruments with comparatively shorter maturities.

Investment Objective of the Scheme

The foremost investment objective of the Kotak Low Duration Fund Direct Plan-Growth scheme is to provide regular income and reach reasonable returns with lower interest rate risks. To meet this goal, the fund targets investing in money market and low-duration debt instruments that come with shorter maturities, usually up to 6 months to a year.
