What is the Meaning of Hybrid Funds?

Hybrid mutual funds are an investment scheme which invest in more than one asset class. Investment in multiple asset classes allows investors to potentially benefit from diversification and potentially avoid concentration risk.

Equity hybrid funds are also known as aggressive hybrid funds. They are a type of equity-oriented investment scheme that primarily invest in equity and equity-related securities. The fund's assets are also exposed to debt instruments to potentially reduce risk. Equity hybrid mutual funds help investors diversify their portfolio and access multiple asset categories. While diversification may potentially mitigate risk, equity hybrid funds may potentially help investors to create wealth in the long term.

Equity hybrid funds are mandated to invest between 65% to 80% of funds assets in equity. The remaining assets can be invested in debt instruments. As hybrid equity funds invest primarily in equity instruments they are vulnerable to market volatility and fluctuations. They are classified as a high-risk investment option.

Hybrid equity funds are taxed like equity funds. Units held for more than 3 years, gains above ₹1 lakh are subject to LTCG at 10%. Gains on units held for less than 3 years are subject to STCG at 15%.

Who Should Invest in Equity Hybrid Funds?

Equity hybrid funds concentrate 65% to 80% of their assets in equity and equity-related instruments. The remaining assets can be allocated to debt instruments. Concentration risk may be reduced by allocating a portion of the assets in debt instruments which may be relatively less vulnerable to volatility, however, equity-oriented instruments are vulnerable to market volatility. As a result, these funds are associated with a high level of risk and equity hybrid funds may not be suitable for risk averse investors.

Equity hybrid mutual funds are suitable for investors seeking long-term wealth creation and may not be a favourable short-term investment option. Moreover, equity hybrid mutual funds are taxed like equity funds, and may not be suitable for investors seeking tax-saving investment options.
