Why Should You Invest In Gild Funds?

RBI will start reducing the interest rates soon

5-6 years before the the interest rates of banks in India were 6-7 %. RBI have increased the interest rates for fixed deposits over 13 times in the last few years and now it has reached up to 10%. As the commerical growth is too low in India now, this would come to a halt. RBI would soon start reducing the interest rates.

Still how would I benefit from Gilt funds ? When the rush for other investment reduces people will start searching for other secure investment options. Eventually, the demand for Gilt funds and Income bonds will increase. If we consider previous experience, these funds have chances of providing excellent returns in medium-term.
