The short answer is yes. You can invest in debt and equity together. One way to go about this is to invest directly in debt and equity. This means you can invest in debt instruments like government securities, corporate bonds, commerical paper and fixed deposits. And simultaneously, you can invest directly in the stocks of companies through the equity market. Another way to invest in both debt and equity is to take the mutual fund route. So, your portfolio will have a mix of debt funds and equity funds. Lastly, if you do not wish to invest separately in debt funds and equity funds, you can choose hybrid funds.
