Mr. Mahendra Jajoo, CIO- Fixed Income, Mirae Asset Investment Managers (India) Pvt Ltd. said, “In the current uncertain and volatile market environment, where many central banks continue to raise rates key policy rates, Target Maturity Index Funds seem to emerge as one of the popular categories, given the Index replication objective that provides reasonable clarity on portfolio. Long term rates have risen sharply over the last year and possibly factor in further rate hikes by central banks given explicit guidance in that direction by monetary policy authorities. The new products launch would further expand Mirae Asset Mutual Fund offerings in this space in 3- and 10-year segments.”
