What are FMPs?

A fixed maturity plan (FMP) is a closed-ended debt scheme, wherein the duration of debt papers is aligned with the tenure of the scheme. So a one-year FMP will invest in debt instruments that mature in one year or just before this period. This synchronized maturing minimizes the interest rate or reinvestment risk and thereby benefit from the interest rates accrual to the fixed tenure. Ideal for investors looking for investing for a fixed time period and minimize the interest rate risk on their investments.

Why should one invest in FMPs?

Fixed Maturity Plans provide the below given benefits:

  • Lower interest rate risk as it predominantly invests in debt securities matching the maturity of the plan
  • Tax efficient returns as compared to interest income from Fixed Deposits for investors falling in higher tax brackets

  • Indexation benefit for investments of more than 1 year
  • However, FMP’s are close-ended funds hence, one needs to consider their liquidity needs before investing in FMP’s. FMP’s are listed on the stock exchange and can be traded on the exchange platform.
