What is a conservative hybrid fund?

A conservative hybrid fund as the name suggests is a hybrid fund but on the conservative side.

A conservative hybrid fund by regulation requires 75 – 90% of its total assets invested in debt or fixed income securities.

The remaining 10 – 25% has to be allocated to equities.

Hybrid funds that invest mostly in equities are called equity oriented funds and those that invest majorly in debt are called debt oriented funds.

How do conservative hybrid funds work?

A conservative hybrid fund is less volatile than an equity fund since the major investments are in debt.

They are however not risk free.
