What led to the default?
Kotak Credit Risk Fund has significant exposure to Future Lifestyle’s NCDs. The fund house sold part of its holding in the secondary market at 75% value and remaining investment is being valued at 75% of Face Value. However, there is a very high chance that Future Lifestyle is unable to honour its obligations, further impacting the NAV of Kotak Credit Risk Fund.
We advise you to exit/ reduce your investments in the funds to avoid any further loss. Invest only in debt funds that have a 100% allocation to AAA-rated papers and a low modified duration.
