In order to build a diversified portfolio, having a debt component in your portfolio is very important. Debt is largely uncorrelated to equity and tends to zag when equity zigs, thereby proving downside protection. However, debt funds as a category isn't properly understood by retail investors. In this episode, Rajesh Iyer, the former CEO of DHFL Pramerica Mutual Fund, explains the various categories of debt funds, their characteristics, and how to use them to build a diversified portfolio.
