Loan Against Mutual Funds - A Quick Look at the Product

Loan against mutual funds, like any other mortgage-based credit scheme, allows people to borrow a loan by pledging their asset as security. In case of a regular mortgage, the asset is most likely a residential property such as a residential apartment, a plot initially purchased for constructing a home on it, or any other type of residential or commercial real estate property.

But, in case of a loan against mutual funds the asset is more likely, as the name suggests, is a mutual funds bond. Yes! You can actually pledge your mutual funds maturity agreement i.e. the bond as collateral and avail a loan against it. The borrowing limit would be decided on factors such as (1) type of mutual fund, (2) the average rate of return, (3) maturity value.

To give you a gist, the borrowing limit can be somewhere around 60-70% of the asset’s maturity value. However, again, that’s based on the lenders' policy. They can offer a smaller percentage as a loan or vice versa. This is what you can find out while applying actually. But, what you must know is the benefits of taking a loan against your mutual funds:-

  • You don’t lose your investment - the maturity value remains intact and you also get a relationship officer who would answer all your queries during working hours.
  • Once you repay the debt, you get back your mutual fund bond as it is.
  • And it improves your CIBIL score apart from getting you the required finance at a lower rate.

Just remember, every lender offering this facility has certain guidelines which it would expect every applicant to fulfil. You must check these eligibility conditions in advance.
