SBI Magnum Gilt Fund fits the bill as it has outperformed its category average over all timeframes. It has delivered a compounded annual return of 7.28 per cent over the last three years. Gilt funds can take a beating when interest rates move up and also rake in huge gains when rates fall. So, funds manage the interest rate risk by altering the duration of the fund. Given that investing in gilt funds entails interest rate risk, investors should go for funds that actively manage this risk by tweaking its duration. If the interest rates move up, bond prices fall, and vice-versa. As longer duration bonds are more sensitive to interest rates, the fund manager will increase duration in a falling rate scenario to cash in on the rally in bonds.
