INRBONDS Retail High-Yield Bond Index

NAV Update- 1st March 2024

Fixed-income securities are highly suitable for retail investors who prefer steady income by way of regular coupons. It protects their portfolio against the risk of volatility, fluctuation, and unpredictability. Bonds typically react differently to market conditions compared to equity stocks, thereby helping investors balance the overall portfolio risk. Fixed-income securities are debt instruments that pay a fixed interest or coupon rate over a specified period, and they include various options such as government bonds, corporate bonds, municipal bonds, and certificates of deposit (CDs). The retail investor's biggest concern is to earn more than the current inflation rate. Therefore, herein we focus on Corporate Bonds below AAA category offering higher yields targeted to beat the inflation. To build a Fixed Income Portfolio, a retail investor would typically require knowing the current market prices of various corporate securities, yield rates, etc.

It shall serve them as a reference point of current market price and the yield rates, market returns, and the performance of select, good fundamental and stable corporate bonds over the period. INRBONDS Retail High-Yield Bond Index is a diversified set of eight (8) bond securities with a three-year constant maturing index considering that there is enough liquidity and making it a desirable investable portfolio.
