What are corporate bond funds?

These are debt mutual funds, which invest minimum 80% in highest rated investments. This is one of the big reasons to even consider this category – little or no credit risk.

Know that this definition came from SEBI in Oct 2017 and several existing funds restructured themselves to fit into this category by April – May 2018.

Investors looking for income or fixed income allocation are considering these funds.

Here are some of the largest corporate bond funds.
