Accordingly, the Magnum Income Fund and the Conservative Hybrid Fund from the SBI Funds Management Ltd fit the bill for all individuals. Let us explore the two funds here in detail. 

SBI Monthly Income Plan 

The retirees, homemakers, and first-time investors in Mutual Funds have a common goal – to earn consistent monthly returns to beat inflation and secure the investment. The SBI Magnum Income Fund and SBI Conservative Hybrid Fund have portfolios comprising mainly of debt assets with a marginal equity exposure for stable growth.

However, market volatility affects the delivery of a steady income. Consequently, the best option is a suitable SWP (Systematic Withdrawal Plan) for a stable monthly income stream regardless of the fund’s performance and the disbursal surplus. 

The following grid illustrates the critical highlights and salient features of the SBI Monthly Income Plan.

SBI Monthly Income Plan – Highlights

  1. Fund Type

    • SBI Magnum Income Fund: An open-ended medium to long-term scheme mainly investing in instruments with a Macaulay duration of 4 to 7 years. The portfolio bears a relatively high-interest rate and credit risk.

    • SBI Conservative Hybrid Fund: An open-ended hybrid scheme where debt instruments dominate the portfolio composition. 

  2. Product Labelling

    • SBI Magnum Income Fund: The scheme suits investors searching for:

      • Regular income for medium to long term horizons

      • Regular income with capital growth

      • The primary investment is in debt and money market instruments, while the second is in equity and equity-related instruments. 

  3. Investment Objective

    • SBI Magnum Income Fund:  The scheme offers investors the opportunity to generate a regular and steady income through primary asset allocation in debt and money market instruments. The fund manager focuses on investments with a Macaulay duration of 4 to 7 years. However, the scheme does not guarantee returns as there is no assurance of achieving the objectives.

    • SBI Conservative Hybrid Fund: The fund manager focuses on providing the investors an opportunity to invest predominantly in debt and money market instruments.

In addition, the fund manager adheres to the Macaulay Duration of 4 to 7 years defined in the scheme objective.
