Word of the Day

First Loss Default Guarantee

Some companies take loans from banks to lend to their customers - like microfinance institutions.

Many recent fintech startups in India have also tried something similar.

In such cases, the bank signs an agreement with the company or 3rd party that in case their customer fails to pay back the loan, the company will have to pay a part of the money borrowed to the bank.

This is called the first loss default guarantee (FLDG) arrangement - introduced so that banks don’t face high losses from such defaults.

Theme: risk in mutual funds

Day 2: Tuesday

Risk in equity mutual funds can be understood relatively easily — they are the same as that of stocks.

Why? Because equity mutual funds invest in stocks.

As discussed earlier, usually (though, not always), bigger companies’ stocks are lower in risk compared to smaller companies.

So, large-cap mutual funds are lower risk than mid-cap funds, and mid-caps are in turn lower risk when compared to small-caps.

In the world of stocks and equity mutual funds, volatility is known and well-accepted. Seeing your investments in the red is not uncommon, it is a part of investing in stocks and equity.

Risk does not necessarily mean that you lose money.

It could also mean that the returns are lower than expectations or benchmarks.

Featured Question

"What is grey market ? And does it have any relationship with security market or capital market?"

The grey market is sort of an unofficial market — talking strictly within the stocks context.

Although it is unofficial, it is legal and allowed.

When a stock is bought or sold without the exchange (BSE/NSE/etc) being involved, it happens via the grey market.

The exchange automatically matches buyers and sellers. This isn't possible in the grey market.
