A Model is constructed to evaluate the performance of hybrid portfolios of GSecs and Corporate Bonds. Historical data is utilized to compute the performance of three hybrid investment portfolios. These are six G-Secs (short, medium and long term) in combination with one Mutual Fund Corporate Bond Scheme, allocated with different weights into each of the three hybrid portfolios. The paper presents risk and return performance of the three portfolios in absolute terms and also against a single government security which may be regarded as a tentative benchmark. Such hybrid debt portfolios may be of interest to various categories of investors.

Abstract


A Model is constructed to evaluate the performance of hybrid portfolios of GSecs and Corporate Bonds. Historical data is utilized to compute the performance of three hybrid investment portfolios. These are six G-Secs (short, medium and long term) in combination with one Mutual Fund Corporate Bond Scheme, allocated with different weights into each of the three hybrid portfolios. The paper presents risk and return performance of the three portfolios in absolute terms and also against a single government security which may be regarded as a tentative benchmark. Such hybrid debt portfolios may be of interest to various categories of investors.
