About Edelweiss Government Securities Fund
Edelweiss Government Securities Fund is an open-ended debt scheme that predominantly invests in government securities across different maturity periods.

Investors who wish to invest in India’s fixed income market over an investment horizon of a minimum of three years can invest in the fund.
Pros and Cons of Edelweiss Government Securities Fund
The scheme manages the portfolio duration to dynamically generate returns in proportion. The three-year and five-year returns have been higher than the category average returns. Also, the exit load is zero. However, the assets under management (AUM) is yet to reach the line of Rs.100 crore. You may have to watch the expense ratio when the AUM is less.
