What are hybrid mutual funds?

These refer to the mutual fund schemes which invest in both equity and debt and provide growth in investment along with some stability. It is vital to note that percentage of allocation to equity varies from category to category of hybrid mutual funds. Let us understand more on this here:

Conservative hybrid funds

In this variant of hybrid mutual funds, allocation to equity & equity related instruments hovers between 10 to 25 percent while the remaining assets are invested in debt instruments (i.e., 75 to 90 percent). These are primarily meant for low-risk investors who are looking for a boost in returns with a small exposure to equity.
