Debt-oriented schemes are also known as Income schemes. Since these schemes invest in debt securities such as debentures, bonds and government securities, their prices are more stable than those of equity-oriented schemes. It is for this reason that debt-oriented schemes are preferred by medium-risk investors such as retired individuals who may be unable to take high equity risks.
While they are more stable than equities, debt-oriented schemes fluctuate more than money market schemes and are subject to a higher credit risk than gilt funds, which invest in government debt.
