Advantage to the investor in LAS-secured bonds is the relatively higher returns
Debt mutual funds have various kinds of instruments in their portfolios. These are mostly bonds but there may be certain variants like commercial papers, certificates of deposit, government securities, overnight parking with CCIL, etc. All investments are within Sebi regulations. Talking of bonds, bonds may be ‘secured’ which psychologically sounds better (my fund invests in secured bonds) or unsecured (antennae goes up).
