What is the Meaning of a Money Market Mutual Fund?

Money manager funds, also known as money market mutual funds are a short-term and relatively higher liquid debt investment scheme. Money market mutual funds invest in money market securities with relatively low-interest rate risk and relatively low credit risk.

There are several types of money market instruments in India:

Commercial Papers: Companies with a high credit rating may issue commercial papers. These are short-term, unsecured, promissory notes.

Treasury Bills: The government of India issues treasury bills to raise funds for 365 days. Treasury bills are associated with a low level of risk as they are issued by the government.

Certificates of Deposit: Certificates of deposit (CDs) are offered by scheduled commercial banks. These do not have an option for premature redemption.

Bandhan Money Manager Fund aims to provide investors an opportunity to invest in potentially low-risk and short-term securities. While money manager mutual funds are considered a low-risk investment, they may be vulnerable to certain risks.

As money manager funds invest in fixed-income securities they may be vulnerable to interest rate risk or price risk. Money market mutual funds may further be subject to reinvestment risk as the interest rates on maturity may differ from the original coupon of the bond.

Money manager funds are subject to LTCG and STCG tax. LTCG tax is levied on investments held for more than three years at 20% after indexation benefits. STCG tax is levied on securities held for less than three years. Gains are added to the investor's income and taxed according to their income tax slab.
